I am Chinese B1 LPE, now most of partners and potential ISVs devleoped Add-ons solution based on B1 via SDK, and I was told that in APA these Add-ons can involve the certification process, but I noticed that policy is focus on to ISVs, so my question is if our partner developed Add-on solution, if their Add-on can be involved certification process?
Your soon reply is really appreciate.
certification of your Business One Addon can be performed if you are an ISV (Independent Software Vendor) or if you are a VAR (Value Added Reseller). Just get in touch with your associated SAP Business One Partner Manager. He should be able to inform you about the further procedure.
The information in the Step-by-Step guide on SAP BUSINESS ONE ADD-ON SOLUTION CERTIFICATION (B1-SDK) [original link is broken] seems to be outdated since it only talks about ISVs!
Hi, Huergen and Frank,
Thanks a lot for your reply.
Since ISV and VAR can involve their Add-Ons in certification process, so I think this should be official announced to all channel manager and all LPEs, especially in the technical part, this need LPEs to conduct all VARs or ISVs to process it step by step accordingly.
I want to double-check, since the step-by-step guide is related only to ISVs, and there is a requirement to sign a Solution Partner Agreement:
1. Is it possible for a VAR to certify its add-on (without signing a Solution Partner Agreement)?
2. How the procedure for VAR add-on certification looks like?
3. "The ISV contacts his SAP Business One Partner Manager to sign the necessary SAP Business One Add-On Solution Certification Contract" - where can I get a template for such a contract (for VAR)?
