cfolder compettive scenario authorization


I have few questions about compettive scenario.

1. Creating user(suppliers, vendors) for the compettive scenario should be done in R/3 like other internal users?

2. If so should we get license from SAP for the compettiors like supplier and is it a cost involved process?

3. What secrecy level of data when we allow the compettiors to access our data? is there any possibility to breach the security of our R/3 system by using cfolder access?

4. Can the cfolder data can be accessed through SAP ECC Portal? if so how we can give the access to our suppliers?

Pls answer me these questions. Right answers will be rewarded.

Thanking you

    Hi Ramesh,

    Yes you need to create a cFolder user for your suppliers/vendors etc. basically for anyone who has to logon to cFolders. Also make sure you have assigned appropriate roles to the user. A list of all roles and their meanings/authorization is available in the cFolder Configuration Document.

    Each user requires a license from SAP. The cost of the license is better known by SAP.

    No user can logon to the backend R/3 system from cFolders. cFolder does provide an integration with R/3 and import/export of documents, material, etc from R/3 to cFolders and vice-versa. However this can only be done by logging on to the SAP R/3. Moreover cFolders has varied roles and authorization concepts that can keep data safe. It is the safe to exchange data with cFolders.

    cFolders 4.0 onwards can be accessed from the Portal. In case you have to give access to this link, you should also give appropriate portal roles to the user so that only cFolder page is available.

    Hope this answers all your queries.
