Configure the policies that belongs to the order domain for an organization

In Sterling Business Center you can configure the validation policies and the override rules for an organization.

About this task

The validation policy or the override rule configurations that are defined is dependent on variety of factors such as store location, multiple business units across geographical areas. Depending on the business requirements, a group of stores might use the same rules. In such scenarios, Sterling Business Center enables an enterprise administrator to configure each of the rule to a set of organizations, which are called as template organizations.

Template organizations are the organizations from which the store-specific configuration would be inherited from and is configurable for all the organization entities. Based on the business requirements Sterling Business Center also enables the administrator to override the rule for the chosen template organization and define a new configuration, or modify the existing configuration that is available for the chosen template organization.
