A relationship may exist between two business partners. The business partner relationship category characterizes the features of the relationship.

A distinction is made between a one-way and an undirected business partner relationship category. In a one-way relationship category, the relationship extends from one partner to another, but not vice versa.


  • Marriage (undirected)
  • Employee (one-way)
  • Contact person (one-way)
