2610734 - Competitor Role is Missing in the Involved Party Determination for Registered Products

Symptom

You are defining roles for the involved parties in registered products and see that the role competitor is missing.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Business Configuration workcenter
  2. Go to the Implementation Projects view.
  3. Select the Current Project.
  4. Click on Open Activity List.
  5. Select Fine Tune.
  6. Search and Open Activity Involved Parties for Registered Product, Installed Base.
  7. Select Add Row

Here you see that there is no possibility to add involved party competitor.

Cause

We don't provide any standard role code corresponding to competitor for registered products/installed base.
However, you can include another party role code in the business configuration activity party role definition and the role defined here can then be added to the involved parties for registered products and installed base.

Resolution

This is the current system design.
