Configuring Universal Inbox in Siebel Marketing

Upgrades from: Siebel 7.0.x and 7.5.x.

Environments: Development, production test, production.

Platforms: Windows, UNIX, IBM z/OS.

This topic is part of an upgrade process. See How to Perform a Siebel Database Upgrade.

As of Siebel 7.7, Universal Inbox is implemented as a business service. It provides management of approval queues in both Siebel ERM and in Siebel Marketing. Application administrators can see all the queued tasks in Universal Inbox across all applications.

This means that the Siebel ERM administrator can see tasks queued in Siebel Marketing and vice versa. If this cross-application visibility violates data visibility policies at your site, create a copy of the Universal Inbox. Then assign the copy to the workflows in one of the applications. Use the preconfigured version of Universal Inbox in the other application. This creates physically separate approval queues.
