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.

Data Model

The following diagram shows the key objects with the logical relationship between them:

Workflows

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:

User Interface

Navigating to a Module

Whether you are a provider or vendor, you can quickly open a required module management screen practically from any place in the UI:

  • From the home dashboard by clicking the icon representing the module.
  • From other places by using the drop-down list of modules.

Data Grids

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):

  • Using a drop-down list. For example, to display contracts of specific types, click the Contract ID header and select the types you want to see:

    Use the Hide test contracts switch to show or hide test contracts.
  • Searching by a substring. For example, click the Agreement header and type a substring that can be a part of agreement names or IDs you are looking for.

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”.
