cFolders Implementation Prerequisites

Hello All,

We are planning to implement cFolders. I would like to know

1. Minimal Hardware requirements,

2. S/W license and Cost.

I came across Master Guide, Application Operation Guide of cFolders from service market place. But the above two things are not clear to me.

I have gone through the FAQ of cFolders 3.0, But I want the FAQ of cFolders 4.5. Where will I get this document?

Kindly share these info ASAP. Thanks!!!

    with regards to license costs - cFolders requires user-specific licenses, either SAP Professional User, typically for the internal users that are using it (many times this does not require additional licensing if the user has SAP Professional User anyway already since he uses SAP ERP), or SAP Project User, for internal or external occasional users that do only review and approve objects like documents, BOMs, or ECNs.

    With regards to hardware sizing - this really depends on your needs. E.g. if you want to manage lots of documents, you will probably want to leverage associated distributed content server architecture rather than storing documents on the web application server itself. I do not have a link for a sizing guide.

    With regards to FAQ - most probably these are available in an SAP note. Should be very similar to earlier releases though. What are you up to?

    • Hi,

      the users that do not have SAP access to date would need SAP Project User, if they only touch cFolders.

      For the SRM scenario, no additional licenses are required for the users as cFolders usage is granted with the licensing of the related SRM price list item.
