Invoke a function to make a change on Siebel

When the user clicks on the buttons, this interface calls a function that performs a write on Siebel. In this case, the invoked method, "Update", appends the account ID to the account name for the account whose ID is passed by this interface. Since this is an invokeWriter, it does not return a result to Appian, and a separate query must be performed to view the results of this action.
