Configuring Siebel Wireless with Server Configuration Files

The following server configuration files are created for the various Siebel Wireless applications during the installation of Siebel eBusiness Applications. These files can be found in the \siebsrvr\BIN\lang directory for the language installed (such as ENU for English):

These server configuration files should be used to define installation-related preferences for Siebel Wireless applications such as enabling the Siebel Wireless Auto Login feature, integrating Siebel Wireless applications with directory servers, enabling Wireless support for the XML Web Interface and HTML wireless browsers.

Additionally, these configuration files can be used to perform such optional configurations as altering the number of records returned by lists in Siebel Wireless, and turning off case sensitivity for Siebel Wireless applications.

Note that the configuration changes discussed in this section must be made to each of the individual server configuration files described above for Siebel Wireless applications for which the new configuration is desired. The Siebel server must be stopped and started after these configuration changes are made to force the new configuration into effect.

Altering the Number of Records Returned by Lists

By default, Siebel Wireless applications return three records with each list. For example, the list of employees accessible from the Siebel Sales Wireless application displays the first three employees the first time it is accessed, and it displays the next three employees each time the More link is selected.

You can alter the number of records returned by lists by setting an entry in the SWE section of the relevant Wireless Server configuration file as follows:


NumberOfListRows = <Number Desired>

Note that some wireless browsers impose limitations on the amount of data that can be retrieved with any one request. Increasing the number of rows returned may cause the requests coming from the Siebel Server to exceed the data request size limitations imposed by these wireless browsers. Therefore, you should test the ability of the wireless browsers that will be used to access Siebel Wireless applications to handle the additional data returned from the Siebel Server once this parameter is changed to make sure that your changes do not produce a "Digest Too Large" or similar error.

Turning Off Case Sensitivity

By default, Siebel Wireless applications are set to be case-sensitive for searches. You can make Siebel Wireless applications case-insensitive when performing searches by making the following changes.

To turn off case sensitivity

  1. Edit the ServerDataSrc section of the appropriate Siebel Wireless server configuration files as follows:


    CaseInsensitive = TRUE

  2. Log into a Web Client application with administration capabilities as the systems administrator.
  3. Navigate to Site Map > Server Administration > Enterprise Configuration, and from the Enterprise Component Groups list, select Siebel Wireless component group.
  4. Click the Enterprise Component Groups tab, select the wireless application name for which you wish to modify case sensitivity, and then click the Enterprise Profile Configuration tab.

    The upper list changes to Component Profiles.

  5. In the Component Profiles list, in the Named Subsystem Alias column, select ServerDataSrc.
  6. In the Enterprise Profile Configuration list, select DSCaseInsensitiveFlg from the Parameter Alias column.
  7. In the Value column, enter TRUE.

    Use capital letters, no quotes.

  8. Step off of the record to save it.
  9. Restart the Siebel server and the Web server.
