Defining Business Service User Properties
User properties are optional variables that you can use to define default values for your business services in Siebel Tools. When a script or control calls your business service, one of the first tasks the service performs is to check the user properties to gather any default values that will become input arguments to the service's methods.
To define business service user properties
- With your business service selected in Siebel Tools, expand the Business Service tree in the Object Explorer, and then select Business Service User Prop.
The Business Service User Props list appears in the Object List Editor.
- Right-click, then choose New Record.
- Type the name of the user property in the Name field of the new record.
- Type a value in the Value field.
The value can be an integer, a string, or a Boolean.
