Welcome Siebel Innovation Pack 2014...

Lets us take a look at siebel's latest leap in its Open UI framework with the release of Innovation Pack 2014 

Theme "Aurora"
The new 'Aurora' (from the Latin word aurora, "sunrise" or the Roman goddess of dawn) theme available in Innovation Pack 2014 is design to be fresh, minimalistic and provide a sharper, clearer, laser focused view of information, across all devices - which also means it is designed to be fully responsive. 

New Navigation
Aurora comes with these options:
  • Tab navigation
  • Tree navigation
  • Side bar navigation
The new “Side bar navigation” is ultimately meant for touch devices, though it would work just fine in a desktop scenario. But in a desktop scenario it would certainly work far less efficient. The Side bar navigation on a touch device obviously has the great benefit of using far less screen real-estate.

Fully HTML 5 Complaint 
With Innovation Pack 14, Siebel can be used with any browser or Devise which is HTML 5 compliant the responsive web design adjusts automatically depending on the device.

Shuttle Applets are back 

with the latest IP 14 Siebel has gone a step ahead from its tradition UI, the new architecture is much robust and modern and is multi platform.Use it and you will find it much friendly and easily adaptable.

How to test Email Notification in Siebel using "Outbound Communications Manager"...

Hi All ... recently i had some issue in my project when no mail notification was sent to user .I tried to trigger sample mail for my email id to confirm if Communication Profiles was properly setup. So to trigger a mail from a particular user Id we can use Business Service "Outbound Communications Manager"  and method "SendMessage"

  • Goto Administration - Business Service
  • Simulate View ,Enter Business Service Name and Method

  • In the Input Argument ,enter Property Name and Property Value

Note: MsgSubject is the subject of Message(Optional)
          MsgBody is the Body of Message(Optional)
          MsgToList is the mail Id of person
          CommProfile is the Communication profile for the system

If the communication profile is properly setup mail will be sent to the specified email id.

Working with Siebel Applets ...

Hi ..let us do some hands on exercise with Siebel applcation , lets take a very simple requirement

1. Under Accounts Screen in Account List View
 (Refer to know the terms screens ,views and their relationship) customer can see Country and City fields in list applet but the fields are not in form applet ,the requirement is to display the field in form applet also.

Approach to solve the requirement.

  • Identify the Applets and their corresponding Business Component.
  • Identify if the fields which are to be added exist in BC or do we need to create new ? (in our case fields are already on BC we need to just expose them on form applet)


  • Get the name of Applet and corresponding BC, use help --> About View                                                          
  •  Note the name of Applet                                                                                                                           
  • Goto Tools --> Object Explorer and search for the Applet , Lock the applet and Add the fields City and Country (as these fields are already available on BC we need not create new field)           
  • Open Applet Web Layout by right clicking the applet and add the newly added fields in web layout                                                                                                                                                      
  • Compile the Applet by right clicking the applet and select compile  
you can now login in application and confirm the changes.
The requirement was very simple and basic it can be modified to a bit difficult one if the field which need to added are not already on BC in that case you need to analyse how to create those fields do you need to extend the table to create new fields or fields can be fetched from Joins/link with other BC. I will take this sort of requirement in next post till then happy reading :-)...
