Enforcing the Field Length for Entering Advanced Rules

The Advanced Rule template allows you to enter a rule containing several thousand characters. However, the database can store rules that contain only up to 900 characters.

You can revise the business component associated with the Advanced Rule template so that you cannot enter more than 900 characters. This business component is used for populating several lists. Revising the business component enforces the 900 character limit on all these lists. Use Siebel Tools to determine the other lists that are affected.

To enforce the field length

  1. In Siebel Tools, locate the Rule Designer Dummy List VBC business component.

    It is located in the Rule Designer project.

  2. Locate the field called 0 (zero).
  3. Set the Text Length value to 900.
  4. Recompile the desired application and test.
