Password cotrol-cFolder-Collaborative Folder-Main Vendor & Sub-vendor

We are interacting with main vendor and sub-vendor for document submission and its approval through collaborative folder of cFolder tool.

In this respect, only main vendor's UID and its password is used for collaboration for the above process. The same UID and password is shared by sub-vendor also.Every 90 time elapse, system prompts user to change its password. If any user i.e. sub-vendor or main vendor changes the password, then other user are not able to login into system as all various user are logging into from country's different location.

Our objective is to control the password in such a way that only one user i.e. main vendor can change the password and other location's sub-vendor need not face the change of password for same collaborative folder


At one location.

Main Vendors' UID=V_1000346

Password =password123

Diferent location

Under Same UID =V_1000346

Sub-vendor UID =V_1000456

Password =password456

    what do you mean by UID - User ID, or are you working with a Business Partner concept?

    Thanks, Ulf.

    • Hi,

      first of all, I need to stress that there is a reason for users being individual users in cFolders. If different people are accessing cFolders, they need different users.

      In your case, in the second example, you work with one and the same user, although as you state different users (one from the vendor, and one from the sub vendor) are logging in to cFolders to work on a document approval.

      cFolders collaborations allow access to any number of users, and if you want to trigger document approval by a vendor, you can trigger notifications to individual users or all participants of the collaboration, just depending on how you trigger the notification, e.g. subscription, manual notification, automatic or manual status action driven notification on status switch etc.

      Regards, Ulf.
