EIM Interview Questions

Q 1 : When I tried to set the primary employee for the position through EIM, it is not getting updated. Why?
Ans :
While updating the primary employee for position, apart from setting the POSTN_PR_EMP column in the EIM table, you should also define the MISC SQL parameter in your IFB file.

Q 2 : Although setting the trace flags, I’m not able to see log information in the log file. Why?
Ans :
You should configure your component event levels as described below :-

                               Event Type                                                  Log Level
                            ----------------------                                              ---------------
                            SQL Tracing                                                          4
                            SQL Summary                                                      4
                            Task Configuration                                                 4
                            Component Tracing                                                3

Q 3 : What does IFB stands for?
Ans :
IFB stands for InterFace Builder.

Q 4 : Can I use more than one IFB file for an EIM process?
Ans :
No, it’s not possible. You can use shell process in case if you want to do more than one operation in a single EIM task.

An Introduction to EIM

EIM stands for Enterprise Integration Manager. Siebel EIM is a process provided by the Siebel CRM package, in order to import the legacy data, export, delete or merge existing data. It is a SIEBEL Component which is used for Data Migration from legacy as well as other Siebel systems. EIM is much fascinating and challenging as area in Siebel to work on.

Why EIM:

Siebel has very unique and complicated Database structure which already has relationship defined between 'n' number of tables and hence it is not recommended to insert, delete or update data stored in what is known as Base Tables in Siebel. During migration, lot of things can happen which can lead to data integrity issues. To answer all those concerns Siebel has provided EIM.
For most of base tables in Siebel, an EIM table is also in existence which allows you to play with data and perform thing that you normally wouldn’t want to perform on base tables. So, you can import-export data to and from EIM tables.

EIM is mainly used :
  • To Import bulk amounts of data from external sources to base table.
  • To Delete bulk amounts of data.
  • To Update bulk amounts of data.
