and import from within the Siebel client. Steps you perform when you use the Siebel Client to migrate a workflow process include: 1 Export the workflow process to XML by using the Export Utility. 2 Import the workflow process into the repository of the target environment. Import and Export when Using Certain Features of Siebel Tools Siebel Tools features that are not applicable to Siebel Workflow objects include: SIF export and import. Object Compare. Three way merge during upgrades. For more information, see Siebel Application Services Interface Reference. Because Siebel Tools excludes Siebel Workflow objects from these features, it is important to use the Siebel Workflow import and export feature in order to back up and restore a workflow process. For example, if you archive a project in Siebel Tools, then the Siebel Workflow objects within that project are not archived. CAUTION: If you delete the objects from a project expecting that they can be restored from the SIF, then it is important to keep in mind that Siebel Workflow objects are an exception, and cannot be restored from the SIF. Use the Siebel Workflow import and export feature to back up and restore workflow processes. Import and Export with a Subprocess If you import a workflow process that contains a sub process step, then you must import the subprocess, and then the parent workflow process. Import the parent only after the subprocess is successfully imported. This rule also applies for importing workflow processes in batch. Figure 20.

Administering a Workflow Process Process of Migrating a Workflow Process Siebel Business Process Framework: Workflow Guide Version 8.1, Rev A 223 It is not necessary to export the subprocess first when exporting a workflow process. Name length must also be considered for a subprocess when importing a workflow process. A subprocess can contain a name that is to 100 characters in length. The name of a subprocess that exceeds this limit can generate an error during import. Import and Export with Carriage Returns If a workflow process calls the SendMessage method of the Outbound Communications Manager business service to send email, and if carriage returns exist in the message body, then the workflow process can be exported. However, if the workflow is imported back into the database, then the imported workflow does not contain the carriage returns. Instead, the carriage returns appear as square characters, and the message body is treated as a single paragraph. To remedy this situation, you must edit the message body, replacing the square characters with carriage returns. A carriage return is entered by pressing the enter key. Redeployment of a Workflow Process After it Is Migrated When planning a migration strategy, it is important to consider potential redeployment work that must be performed after the workflow process is migrated.

    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.
