Here goes another one.
An important question (every question asked in an interview is important isn’t it ) involving quite a few important entities in Siebel such as Position and Responsibilities. This question can come in variety of ways I am just giving a single question, but other flavors might be exist
What kind of relationship exists between Position and Responsibilities?
It is a question that requires a subjective answer, and answer can vary from person to person. I will try to give answer to the above question(s) but before that I would like to give a disclaimer.
The views presented in this post are mine and only mine. No person dead or living has anything to do with it. Please use the answer in interview at your own risk and if somebody is offended by it or feels differently he is free to express his views by the way of comments in this post
Answer or Explanation
There is no direct relationship between Responsibility and Position.
The indirect relationship between Responsibility and Position is of Visibility. Both of them drive Visibility in Siebel.
- Responsibility restricts access to particular view so that user cannot see those views.
- Position restricts access to particular set of data.
So, as a result both are used to limit visibility of users of application.
After discussing with my friends and colleges about this question I am getting a feeling that I am putting my hand in a bee nest but I think this could end up as a new learning to me and for all.
So guys I beg you to tell me your views what do you think about this question so that this post can become the new answer for all of us.
