Configuration of an ERP system means choosing paths in predefined processes and setting parameters that determine the process flow of the application. It also includes the addition of custom data objects such as custom fields and custom entities. These types of amendments can be applied after the build and deploy processes as well as being part of the software delivery itself. If configurations are meant to be supported by IFS or an IFS partner, it is recommended that the configurations are delivered in the build and deploy processes. Simple configurations, applied in the environment using administration tools, are typically managed by the customer directly. The Customer will then take full responsibility and make sure it is not interfering with software logic. In such configurations it is not recommended to use coding like PLSQL and SQL as it will typically be dependent on the underlying code. Often when coding is needed in a configuration, it is better to implement it using a customization.
Before you start configuring, we strongly recommend you to read through the Best Practices Guide.
