The eConfigurator API methods are a set of well-defined and exposed methods that provide the ability to use the eConfigurator and manipulate or validate a configuration session without using the customizable runtime UI. They are methods of the business service 'Complex Object Instance Service' and 'Remote Complex Object Instance Service' and are used extensively by other services (Configurator UI services) within the Siebel application. They can be accessed by external applications or via script

There can be times when it is necessary to trace the inputs and outputs to the methods to understand why the calls are performing as they are, or to understand what calls you need to make in script to automate a process i.e. add an attribute to a customizable product. This document discusses the implementation of sniffer code to provide this information and how to test to see the results.

Please note that this document is focused on eConfigurator but the technique can be used with any business service to trace inputs/outputs.
