Creating a Dedicated Repository

The repository shipped with this release (SiebelAnalytics.rpd) contains a large number of presentation layer subject areas. You are licensed to use only a subset of these subject areas, and the remaining material is unnecessary to your needs. The Siebel Analytics Server Administration Tool feature Import from repository is a way for you to reduce the size of the .rpd file. Anything not required by the subject areas you license is absent from the new, smaller repository you create. For example, if you are using only Service, all the Pharma subject area material is not imported. The relevant Analytics subject areas for Siebel eBusiness Applications and Siebel Industry Applications are listed in Customizing a Siebel Analytics Application.

Trimming the repository improves performance.

To import subject areas into a new, dedicated repository

  1. Create a new, empty repository.
  2. Choose Import from repository and point to the repository SiebelAnalytics.rpd.
  3. From the Presentation layer, choose the subject areas that you licensed.
  4. At the Objects to Update screen, choose the objects to be updated.
  5. The drop down list at the top of the window shows you the categories of objects that you can update—Catalogs, Users, Groups and Variables. The left pane shows you the objects in the category you selected. To refresh the display, click the Refresh button.

  6. In the left pane, select the objects within that category that you want to update.
  7. You can select multiple objects by SHIFT-clicking to select adjacent objects, or CONTROL-clicking to select non-adjacent objects.

    Depending on the category of object you selected, different buttons allow you to specify how you want objects added:

  8. After you have selected the objects, click the appropriate button to add the object to the right pane.
  9. Objects in the right pane are the objects that will be imported. You can remove an object from the right pane by clicking on it and then clicking the Remove button. You can select multiple objects to remove by shift-clicking or control-clicking on them as appropriate.

  10. When you are finished, click Next to continue.
