Starting in mid-March 2020, a new store app: GRC: Vendor Portal (svdp) will be released along with other apps. For existing customers who already have the previous version of vendor portal (vdp) in your instance, please read on.
After you have upgraded your instance to GRC: Vendor Risk Management (VRM) release version (V10.0), a new vendor portal will be installed to your instance. Your configurations in the previous vendor portal will be automatically migrated to the new vendor portal. These configurations include:
- Your company name and logo
- Any styling changes you have made to your existing vendor portal
- Vendor portal home page, login page, and all other service portal settings
Please note that any customizations (code changes you have made to the vendor portal pages and widgets) will not be migrated to the new vendor portal. Similar to other upgrades, you will need to manually migrate your customizations to the new vendor portal if you still need them.
2. Switch between the two vendor portals
Your instance will have access to two vendor portals:
1) /svdp: The new vendor portal - GRC: Vendor Portal
2) /vdp: your previous vendor portal - Vendor Management Service Portal
You can switch between svdp and vdp by changing a system property: sn_vdr_risk_asmt.vendor_portal_endpoint. The default setting is svdp. If you decided to switch back to vdp, please note that some new features we’ve added to this version of VRM (E-signature, for example) will not be available. See the Vendor Risk Management Release Notes for more information on the new features.
For the vendor portals to work correctly, your instance must have New York Patch 5 and later releases (NP5+).
Note: Your previous vendor portal (vdp) will be deprecated in the Rome release.
