SBL-CFG-00162: %1 is not a valid value for %2.

Applies to:

Siebel Configurator - Version: 7.8 [19021] to 8.1.1 [21112] - Release: V7 to V8
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Steps to reproduce

1)Log into Call Center
2)Create an Attribute Definition called "Date" of Type Date
3)Create a Product Class called "Laura Test"
4)Add this Attribute with name "Start Date" to the Product Class.
5)When the attribute is added to the Product Class choose Menu > Translations and create a translation for ENU language with a value "ENU START DATE"
6)Create a Product called "Test Laura" and assign the new Product Class to the Product
7)Validate the Product
8)Note that when the Configurator opens that ENU START DATE is displayed for the attribute name
9)Input a piece of text into the attribute field (remember type is Date)
10)Error is thrown and the Attribute specified does not appear with the translated name

Attribute should appear with the correct translation text and not in the original attribute name.

Error that does appear:
SBL-CFG-00162: qwerty is not a valid value for Start Date.

Error that should appear:
SBL-CFG-00162: qwerty is not a valid value for ENU START DATE.

This issue is due to a product defect.

The "SBL_CFG" error messages are controlled in the underlying code behind Product Configurator. These error messages cannot be edited through repository or web template files. The translated attribute name should be displaying but instead the original name of the attribute that is associated to the product is showing.


This issue has been logged as a new Product Defect CR 10587909.

Our eConfigurator is giving validation errors with Date attributes. When selecting the Date (our ESN deployment supports a dd/mm/yyy) as European Format gives Error1 (see attachments). When selecting the Date Attribute as American Format gives Error2 (see attachments).

Can you please indicate further steps in order to resolve the issue?

For the benefit of other users:

The issue encountered has to do with Date Fields’ behaviour with Standard Interactivity User Interface (UI) in eConfigurator. To reproduce the issue create a product with a Date attribute, create a Standard Interactivity UI and set the Date settings to dd/mm/yyyy.

- Introduce 17/10/2007 => error: 10/17/2007 is not a valid value for Date_Attribute.(SBL-CFG-00162)
- Introduce 10/17/2007 => expected behaviour: the value '10/17/2007' cannot be converted to a date time value.(SBL-DAT-00359)

Change request #12-1LMFG3A was logged to address this issue.

A possible workaround is to use High Interactivity UI for the product, as the issue does not occur in this type of interface.

If an attribute LOV domain is updated, with values removed, an error is encountered when modifying the asset.

The following is the error from the log:

EAISiebAdpt EAISiebAdptErr 1 000000024ab70a1c:0 2009-09-21 10:08:06 [0] Method 'SetFieldValue' of business component 'MACD Quote Item XA' (integration component 'XA') returned the following error:
"1 is not a valid value for Previous Value.(SBL-CFG-00162)"(SBL-EAI-04376) (0x6900a2)

The application is having issues resolving the Previous Value if the value is outside of the Attribute LOV domain


1-) Administration - Products > Attribute Definitions

2-) Create 2 attributes

FR 1 - freeform

FR 2 - { 1, 2 , 3}

Release them

3-) Administration - Products > Class Administration

Create a class and add the above attributes.

4-) Administration - Products > Product Definitions

Create 2 Products with the above class. Release them.

5-) Administration - Products > Product Definitions

Create a customizable Product and add the 2 products created on step 4 in different relationships.

Set Min Cardinality of the Child Products to 1.

=> Product Structure

Root Product

Rel 1 - Child Product 1 - Min Card = 1
Rel 2 - Child Product 2 - Min Card = 1

6-) Navigate to Accounts and create a new one

7-) Drilldown on the Account Name and create a Quote

8-) Add Root Product to the Quote (the child products will be added by default)

SBL-BPR-00162: Error invoking service '<?>', method '<?>' at step '<?>'.


The behavior reported was considered a Product Defect BUG 10576833

According to engineering review, the business component code currently validates the attribute value for the "value" & "previous value" fields. However, if as is the case in this scenario, the attribute value is removed from the enumerated list, then on modification of the asset, an error is thrown when attempting to save the value in the previous value field. However, since previous value field is used to provide historical data, the validation is not required.


The fix included in the Fix Pack.
