    Process to edit user interface of Supplier Portal pages is slightly different from the one followed for editing user interface of pages used by users internal to your organization. These changes could include making fields read-only, required or changing field labels etc.This topic explains how to edit the user interface of Supplier Portal pages. As an example, we will make make the Corporate Web Site field required on the Edit Profile Change Request page.

     

    A. How to navigate to edit User Interface of Supplier Portal pages
    In order to access the Edit User Interface page, you will need to create a dummy supplier and supplier contact with a user account. The user assigned to this contact will need to login to Supplier Portal to proceed with the changes. Here are exact steps you will need to follow.

    1. Access Suppliers workarea as a Supplier Administrator or Supplier Manager.
       
    2. Create a dummy supplier, add a supplier contact and create a user account for this contact. An email address needs to be provided to create this user account and this email address needs to belong to the user who will be responsible for changing the Supplier Portal pages. NOTE: Ensure that the user account is created successfully before proceeding to the next step (Account Status needs to be Active). Also, ensure that the user has been assigned all the appropriate roles so that he can access the pages he needs to change. For instance, the user will need the Supplier Self Service Administrator role to be able to change the Edit Profile Change Request page that is accessed from the Manage Profile page.
