Types of Users
Siebel Business Applications recognize several types of users:
- Employees. Individual internal users. Employees typically have login privileges.
- Partners. Individual users in partner companies to whom your company may grant access to some of its data. To access views a partner needs a position. For more information, read Registering Partners and Creating Partner Organizations.
- Users. Internal and external users with login privileges. Customers for customer applications to whom your company may grant some data access. A user does not need a position to access views.
- Persons. Includes employees, partners, users, and contacts. Persons may or may not have login privileges.
