When you assign sequence numbers to assignment rules

This preview shows page 58 - 60 out of 314 pages.

When you assign sequence numbers to assignment rules, Siebel Assignment Manager evaluates those rules in ascending order of the sequence numbers. Assignment rule sequencing provides a means for you to prioritize the rules that apply to any given assignment object by order of importance, thereby limiting the number of rules that Assignment Manager processes for assignment. For example, you might want to run Assignment Manager only for your higher priority rules first, and then, if those rules pass, stop processing additional rules because candidates are already successfully matched.

Assignment Rule Administration About Assignment Rule Administration Siebel Assignment Manager Administration Guide Version 8.1, Rev. A 59 If none of the rules have a sequence number, or if all of the rules have the same sequence number, then Assignment Manager processes all the rules. However, if some of the rules in the group have sequence numbers and other rules do not, the rules with no specified sequence number are considered to have a sequence number of 0 and are evaluated first. Therefore, it is recommended that you give every rule a sequence number if you use sequencing. After processing every assignment rule within a sequence number, Assignment Manager checks to see if each rule was successfully assigned. When a rule results in successful assignment, Assignment Manager processes the rest of the rules having the same sequence number and then stops processing. Subsequently, the rules with higher sequence numbers are not processed. As shown in Table 15 on page 59 , Assignment Manager identifies the beginning and end of a segment within a sequence by the change in sequence number. For example, Assignment Manager first evaluates rules with a sequence number of 1, then evaluates rules with a sequence number of 2, and so on. It does not matter, however, how rules within a segment are evaluated. At run time, Assignment Manager evaluates the rules in the first segment (Segment 1) first, and then stops to find out whether an assignment has been made. If it has assigned, Assignment Manager does not continue. If it has not assigned, then Assignment Manager continues to the next sequence (Segment 2).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
