Last updated on JULY 11, 2017

Applies to:

Siebel CRM - Version 8.1.1.14 [IP2014] and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Siebel Remote / Replication / Anywhere - on version: 8.1.1.14.6 [IP2014]

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
On a Development environment, a copy of Production DB was used. When trying to extract the Local Databases for developers, this fails due to huge amount of data extracted.

As a next step, Time Filters were applied on some of the Dock Objects that were responsible for bringing into Local DBFs too much data - this helped reducing the Local DBF size.
Based on suggestions from <Document 735454.1>, the goal would be to have the DBF under 1 GB.

But it was found that still a lot of Party records were extracted - so a time filter was added for this Dock Object as well.
But after performing again a re-extract and restart of Transaction Router (TxnRoute) comp, the amount of data for Party was not decreasing.


EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Time filters were expected to work to reduce the amount of data extracted - as this worked for other Dock Object / data entities extracted.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Define a new Time Filter on Dock Object 'Party' and set a Cutoff date in the past for that
2. Re-extract the developer's database and restart TxnRoute comp
3. Check and compare the amount of records extracted for Party Dock Object.

BUSINESS IMPACT
-----------------------
The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, users cannot initialize a Local DBF with manageable size
