What is diffrence between Profile Attributes and SharedGlobal:

Both are basically used for storing values which can be accessed from anywhere in the Application. Both are user and session specific.

a) Profile Attributes comes with Siebel Personalization. If EnablePersonalization = False in the CFG, Profile Attributes will not work. There are two types of Profile Attributes:

1) Persistent Profile Attributes
2) Dynamic Profile Attributes

Persistent Profile Attributes are mapped to the fields in the Business Component "Personalization Profile". Dynamic Profile Attributes are created at run time and are not based on any Business Component fields.

Dynamic profile attributes is generally what we use most of the time.

b) GlobalShared can not be used in browser scripts. Profile Attributes can be used in browser scripts.
c) Profile Attributes are supported in Calculated Values, Search Specifications etc but GlobalShared is not.
d) Profile Attributes are mainly used in Personlization Rules to control the Applet and View visibility
