The Connect platform consists of the following software components known as modules:
Each module implements one or more connected business objects required in the business flows to integrate with 3rd party systems.
The following diagram shows the key objects with the logical relationship between them:
Many Connect objects implement a multi-step workflow that displays transitions between different object statuses. State machines of these key objects involved in supply chain flows look as follows:
Whether you are a provider or vendor, you can quickly open a required module management screen practically from any place in the UI:
Many modules contain one or more data grids in their pages. Data grids enable account staff to review a list of business objects and run operations with them. For example, a user starts creating a new object or views details of an object by clicking on that object.
To narrow down a list of objects, the account can use search patterns of two types (the following examples are valid for the Contracts module):
NOTE: You can use concurrently more than one search criteria, for example, find all active contracts bound to certain marketplaces and those agreements that contain the word “standard”.
For details about an individual module, refer to the corresponding document in this set. The navigation menu and inter-document links help you find quickly a certain document.
