Assignment Attribute

An assignment attribute does the following:

  • Defines an attribute that an assignment criteria can reference.
  • Specifies the picklist that Siebel CRM uses in the Values applet in the Assignment Criteria view that an administrator can use in the client to configure an attribute.
  • Does not directly specify a database column or a combination of database columns. The child assignment attribute column defines a column mapping.

This object type occurs in the following location in the object hierarchy:

Table 49 describes properties that Siebel CRM uses with an assignment attribute.

Checking In Assignment Objects

You must check the project that an assignment object references in to the Siebel Server. It is not sufficient to only compile and distribute the SRF file.
