Creating Profiles for Partners(Required)
The next step is to create Profiles for your Partners Users. Profiles are used to enforce partnerprogram entitlements via the partner portal. If you want to give different partner types (e.g.Resellers, Technology, or Consulting) or different partner tiers (e.g. platinum, gold, bronze)varying entitlements then you will need to create multiple Profiles for your partners. Thefollowing steps explain how to create a Profile.1) Create your first Partner Profile by navigating to
Setup | Administration Setup | Manage Users | Profiles
2) Drill into one of the Partner profiles. You could have one or more of the three PRMprofiles depending on which licenses you purchased: Bronze Partner User (BasicPartner User), Silver Partner User (Standard Partner User), and/or Gold PartnerUser (Strategic Partner User)
. For the sake of this demonstration, I will use theGold Partner User Profile. Drill into the Gold (or Strategic) Partner User profile.
In December 2007, the names of the PRM licenses were changed. The new names are Gold Partner,Silver Partner, and Bronze Partner. These are functionality equivalent to the Strategic, Standard, andBasic: Gold=Strategic, Silver=Standard, and Bronze=Basic. The old Partner Edition license is alsoequivalent to the Strategic/Gold license. The labels that show up in your salesforce.com instance willdepend on when you purchased your PRM Licenses.
