SIF Import: An attribute was not set to its default value, causing ORA-01407

(Doc ID 1593504.1)

Last updated on MARCH 02, 2017

Applies to:

Siebel Tools - Version SIA[23016] and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


A SIF file was created from an applet. The SIF file did not contain the property Disable Dataloss Warning. This property is required and has a default value of 'N' (or FALSE).  

When importing this SIF file into a repository where the applet does not exist yet, everything works fine.

However, importing the SIF file into a repository that already contains this applet, an error message occurs:

ORA-01407: cannot update ("SIEBEL"."S_APPLET"."DISA_DATALOSS_FLG") to null

The importlog.txt file reports a complete rollback:

Updating object: Applet 'Manage Activity Attachments Applet (UCM)' of Project 'PS Project Management (SSE)'
  -> set 'Disable Dataloss Warning' = ''
Rolling back transaction for all changes ..
