More Siebel - BIP Integration Goodness

More from my journey of Siebel- BIP integration discovery last week. It was a steep learning curve but none the less very useful.
Firstly, there are 3 levels of integration available to Siebel 8.1.1 users

Level 1


  • Siebel stores and manages the templates and manages data generation via integration objects

  • At runtime, Siebel calls BIP via WS to process data+template to generate output and returns the document to the user.

  • BIP just acts as a publishing service for Siebel

Level 2


  • BIP stores the templates and a report definition. The report uses complex Siebel web services as its data source.

  • At runtime, BIP is called via a button or menu item (custom), it then calls Siebel back via a WS to fetch the data (integration object)

  • BIP then generates output and returns the document to the Siebel UI

  • This is the recommended integration as user security can be applied to the data being returned by Siebel

Level 3


  • BIP stores the templates and a report definition. The report uses SQL or stored procedure calls to retrieve data from the underlying database

  • At runtime, BIP is called via a button or menu item (custom), BIP fetches data from Siebel DB

  • BIP generates output and returns to Siebel UI

More details in a great white paper from John on the Siebel PM team,
