Instance and Provisioning Access

An Instance is the front-end system that a company's employees use on a daily basis. Access to functions and features are determined by Role-Based Permissions. Users who are given administrator rights will have access to Admin Center where they can find tools to manage different aspects of their system.

Provisioning is used to access the back-end of a company instance. This is where initial settings are made, where configurations are uploaded, and where different modules like SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central are activated. Customers are not granted access to Provisioning. Only authorized SAP SuccessFactors consultants and implementation partners are granted Provisioning access.
