The Configuration Profile 


You maintain configuration profiles for configurable objects to define central settings for configuring the object.

You can create several configuration profiles with different settings for an object. If an object has several configuration profiles, you must select a profile during configuration. You can only make changes to a configuration with the profile that you first used to configure the object.


You maintain configuration profiles for all configurable objects:


You define different settings in configuration profiles for materials than for other configurable objects.


Note that the class is then assigned to the configurable object, not the profile. The profile only allows you to go to classification.

You can also define settings for the status in Customizing. In Customizing, choose Configuration Profile ® Configurable Objects ® Material ® Maintain Status.
