Debugging Profile Attribute

There would have been umpteen number of situations where you might have felt the need for an easier way of debugging profile attributes than logging the values in a script, haven't you?.If yes, then here is a much simpler way and you can do this on the fly.
When the web client is up, replace the URL with the following script:
javascript: alert(theApplication().GetProfileAttr("gNewRecord"));where 'gNewRecord' is a profile attribute.
 
1.      Place the below code in the address bar of the Siebel Application and hit Enter.
javascript:alert(theApplication().GetProfileAttr("Login Name")), results in SADMIN or CCHENG or valid login id.
 
 
2.      Similarly to set a particular Profile Attribute you can write,
javascript: alert(theApplication().SetProfileAttr("Test", "TestValue"));
 
 
3.      javascript: alert(var bo = theApplication().ActiveBusObject(););
This will return you the active bus object and assign it to the variable bo.
 
 
4.      javascript: alert(theApplication().ActiveBusObject().GetBusComp("Contact").GetFieldValue("Last Name"););
This will return you the Contact’s Last Name in that instance. Similarly SetFieldValue on the fly can also be achieved.
