Siebel EIM

TYPE: This parameter specifies the type of process being defined (IMPORT, EXPORT, DELETE, MERGE, or SHELL). A shell process uses the INCLUDE statement to invoke a sequence of processes in a single run.

An IFB file is nothing but a EIM configuration file which is an ASCII or Unicode (Binary) text file of extension type .ifb. IFB stands for Interface Batch.

To define multiple Extended Parameters values, use a backslash before quote. Reference the example to see how to use this feature:

Some process parameters like TYPE, BATCH, and TABLE are similar to an Import process.

To use the DELETE EXACT parameter to delete data from base tables other than the target base table, specify the user key columns only for a single base table for each row in the interface table.

Integration Manager (EIM) reports the following low-severity error when the foreign key value in the base table does not match with value in the interface table (Note: The following example is based on Siebel version 7.0.4 data model):

If you are using EIM interface tables, you can explicitly set primary addresses for accounts. If you are not using EIM interface tables, you can still set primary addresses using IF interface tables. 

One other measure that can help performance is to pin small tables that are frequently accessed in cache.

Multiple EIM processes can be executed against an EIM table provided they all use different batches or batch ranges. The concern is that contention for locks on common objects may be experienced.
