Product Sharing: Main Tasks

With product sharing, sales or partner organizations can distribute large numbers of master products to sales channels ("outbound product sharing"). The products are not copied to the target channels but remain in the parent organization's master repository.

Generally, all deriving channels share the master data, regardless of their hierarchy. Channels can, however, choose to activate all or only a selected set of the shared master products ("inbound product sharing").

The following main tasks are involved in product sharing:

  • Selecting channels with which to share product data,

  • Assigning the data set to be shared,

  • Creating sharing groups to predefine product data sets.
