Participant modeling

This component allows you to configure participant roles.

There are many related organizations that play a role in the fulfillment process. These organizations have relevant business information associated and have various relationships to each other. The definition of these business, their operational attributes and their specific relationship with other each is Participant Modeling. The core of these organizations is the Enterprise, which represents the organization (brand, geo, etc) with a unique fulfillment process and business rules. For each organization, users that interact with the system, such as customers, sales representatives and Business Administrators can be defined. Access to user interface functions and data can be controlled for each user (or group of users).

For example a business administration user can be defined to only have access to managing the catalog or a sales representative can be defined to have access to a particular set of customers and associated opportunities.
