In CET, vendors are an optional component of a project. They are used to create ‘hard’ categorizations of products. This categorization is ‘hard’ because it adds some restrictions: products may only reference features and leadtime programs on the same vendor.
Vendors have the following attributes:
- Code – Every vendor must have a unique code to distinguish it from other vendors.
- Name – A vendor may have a human-readable name. If the project that the vendor belongs to has multiple languages enabled, a name may be set for every language enabled.
- Description – A vendor may have a short description. If the project that the vendor belongs to has multiple languages enabled, a description may be set for every language enabled.
