You can use a workflow process to start a server task. For example, you can start EIM to export base tables to IF tables or to load IF tables into base tables. The required component parameters that are specific for EIM must be passed in a child property set. You can use either a wrapper business service for EIM, such as the Synchronous Assignment Manager Requests business service, or you can use the Server Requests business service. Because the Server Requests business service is designed to call a variety of server tasks, it does not contain definitions for parameters that are specific to a component. Instead, these parameters are passed down in a child property set which are not declared in the repository. To make Siebel Workflow pass values in a child property set, you use the dot notation of [type].[property]. In this example, because the Server Request Manager service does not care about the child type, but uses the first child, you pass every parameter in the same child, such as EIM.Config. To use the Server Requests business service to call EIM 1 In Siebel Tools, in the Workflow Processes OBLE, define a new workflow process with the values described in the following table. For an example, see “Defining the New Workflow Process” on page 256 . Property Value Process Name EIM Export to IF (Tools) Business Object Account Workflow Mode Service Flow

    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.
