Exporting and Importing Objects

The object definition export and import features in Siebel Tools allow you to copy object definitions from one repository to another repository. These features let members of development teams share pieces of the configurations they develop. Users can export object definitions from the source repository to an archive file, which has the SIF filename extension. This archive file can then be imported into another repository.

In addition, you can check the differences between objects being imported and those already in existence by using the Import Wizard in Siebel Tools. You can also override the importation of specific attributes with the Import Wizard. For more information, see Siebel Tools Reference.
