Establishes the roles that may not be assigned to a business partner at the same time.


The BP role exclusion group allows you to ensure that a business partner does not take on certain roles at the same time.

Within an exclusion group you can define transitions between roles that establish a permitted sequence of roles.
Transitions that are not explicitly defined are not allowed.



You have defined an exclusion group that contains the following roles:

  • Prospect
  • Sold-to party

In this way you establish that a BP cannot take on the role of a prospect and a sold-to party at the same time.

You have also defined the following transition for this exclusion group:

  • Prospect -> sold-to party

In this way you establish that the only possible transition is from prospect to sold-to party.
