Adding Views to the Siebel Application

Developers create new views through Siebel Tools. In order for the views to become available for administrators to work with, you must add them to the Views screen in the Siebel application before you define your business environment.

For example, you want to add an Opportunities view in the Reference screen. In Siebel Tools, you create the view and name it Reference Opportunities. In your Siebel application, you follow the steps in this topic, and add the Reference Opportunities view in the View Administration view. After it has been added in both places, the view can be made accessible to the appropriate users. For details on creating views, see Configuring Siebel Business Applications. For details about controlling visibility to views, see Siebel Security Guide.

This task is a step in Process of Implementing Initial Setup.

To add customized views to the Siebel application

  1. Navigate to the Administration - Application screen, then the Views view.
  2. In the Views list, create a new record, and complete the necessary fields.

You generally do not need to modify or delete views that are already listed. You must modify a view only if its name was changed in Siebel Tools. You must delete a view only if it no longer exists in the data model schema, or if you do not want anyone to have access to it. Instead of deleting views, administrators remove the views from responsibilities and keep them in the Siebel database.

NOTE:  Only visibility-level views can be configured to appear in the Site Map.
