An assignment attribute object definition defines an attribute that can be referenced in assignment criteria records. It specifies a logical attribute that can be chosen from a picklist for defining comparisons; it does not directly specify a particular database column or combination of columns. Column mapping is accomplished through the child assignment attribute column object definitions, one for each assignment object that uses the parent assignment attribute. An assignment attribute also specifies the picklist that appears in the Values list in the Criteria subview when you are entering an attribute in a value record, as shown in Figure 22 . Figure 21. Sample Assignment Attributes Figure 22. Picklist for Populating an Attribute in a Value Record This list column is based on an assignment attribute … … in whose definition this picklist is specified.

Siebel Assignment Manager Administration Guide Version 8.1, Rev. A Basic Configuration for Siebel Assignment Manager Process of Creating Assignment Criteria for Use in Assignment Rules 136 NOTE: Assignment criteria configured to include multiple assignment attributes cannot have these attributes based on columns in different tables. An assignment criteria attribute object definition implements each list column in the Values applet, as described in “Creating Assignment Criteria Attributes for Assignment Criteria” on page 142 . The assignment criteria attribute is based on an assignment attribute, as specified in its assignment attribute property. The referenced assignment attribute identifies a picklist, which is the same picklist that appears when you click the drop-down arrow to the right of the list column cell. The Assignment Attribute object type functions as an intermediary between the assignment criteria on the one hand and the assignment objects on the other, as shown in Figure 22 on page 135 . An assignment criteria attribute references an assignment attribute through its assignment attribute property. In turn, each of the assignment attribute’s child assignment attribute columns specifies an assignment object and a workflow policy component and column combination. An assignment attribute is a logical grouping of similar mappings to different assignment objects that can use the same picklist for value selection. For example, the Account State assignment attribute has several child assignment attribute column object definitions. Each assignment attribute is used for selection of the state in which an account is located, but five of them are used for different assignment objects (Activity, Account, Campaign Contact, and Order), and the other five are used for different account state attributes in the Opportunity assignment object (such as Primary Account State and Indirect Account Primary State).

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
