      Enterprise Siebel Server Server Components AOM File System Manager Siebel File System Files System Manager controls access to the Siebel File System 0/3
    • Uploading an Attachment Using the FSM
      • Attachments are copied from the user's hard drive and transferred to the Siebel Server
      • The FSM component compresses the file, and then stores the compressed file in the Siebel File System
        • Compression and renaming of the files is automated by the FSM
      Enterprise Siebel Server Server Components AOM File System Manager Siebel File System Siebel Web Client Web Server Siebel Gateway Name Server File File 2. FSM compresses and renames file 1. File uploaded from local machine 3. File stored in the File System Database Server 1/3
    • Downloading an Attachment Using the FSM
      • The attachment download request is received by the FSM, which retrieves the requested file
        • Decompresses the file and restores its original name
      • The file is sent back to the user's Web browser
      Enterprise Siebel Server Server Components AOM File System Manager Siebel File System Siebel Web Client Web Server Siebel Gateway Name Server File File 2. FSM decompresses and renames file 3. File downloaded to local machine 1. File retrieved from File System Database Server 2/3
    • Configuring File System Connectivity
      • Web Clients always connect using the FSM
      • Mobile Web Clients connect directly to their local file system and synchronise files using the Synchronisation Manager
      • Dedicated Web Clients can connect directly to the file system or use the FSM
        • Modify the FileSystem parameter in the .cfg file
      [ServerDataSrc] FileSystem = RBMBFS01siebfileatt [ServerDataSrc] FileSystem = *FSM* Directly access the file system Access the file system using the FSM 3/3
    • Web Usage Login Scenario
      • Siebel Web Client (browser) sends the URL to the Web server
        • URL specifies:
          • Either HTTP or HTTPS protocol
          • Web server machine name
          • Application and language
      • URL initially connects to the virtual directory on the Web server
      1. Browser sends URL to Web server Siebel Web Client < browser > Web Server <websrvr1> Virtual Directory [/callcenter_enu] http://websrvr1/callcenter_enu 2. Connects to the virtual directory on the specified Web server
    • Web Usage Login Scenario Continued
      • Virtual directory forwards request to the Siebel Web Server Extension (SWSE) installed on the Web server
      • SWSE uses the eapps.cfg file to obtain connection parameters
      Web Server <websrvr1> Virtual Directory [/callcenter_enu] SWSE Eapps.cfg 4. SWSE locates the requested section in eapps.cfg Siebel Web Client < browser > 3. Virtual directory specifies to use SWSE
    • Web Usage Login Scenario Continued
      • Eapps.cfg specifies the location of the Gateway, Gateway port number, Enterprise, Application Object Manager, and load balancer information for initial connection
        • Contains Siebel Server information in the case of no load balancing
      Siebel Server <SS1> Enterprise – <Siebel> Application Object Manager SCCObjMgr_enu Web Server <websrvr> Siebel Gateway Name Server <gtwysrvr> 5. eapps.cfg specifies connect string values
    • Web Usage Login Scenario Continued
      • Application Object Manager reads configuration file and component parameters, which specify SRF location, application, and so forth
      Siebel Server Enterprise <Siebel> Application Object Manager SCCObjMgr_enu .CFG .SRF Database Server Database Server 6. Application Object Manager reads CFG file (or component parameters)
    • Web Usage Login Scenario Continued
      • The SWE, as part of the Application Object Manager, reads a set of Web templates that are stored on the Siebel Server and creates HTML pages for the data requested
      Siebel Server Application Object Manager SWE .SWT Database Server Database Server 7. SWE reads Web Templates and creates HTML pages Enterprise <Siebel> .CFG .SRF HTML login page
    • Web Usage Login Scenario Continued
      • Application Object Manager sends the completed Web page to the Web server, which passes it back to the Web client
