Partner Detail → Identification

This tab is about how the partner can be uniquely recognized in the documents exchanged over Link.

A very common way is to use GLN numbers, but Link allows the use of any identification type - including one that has been defined by mutual agreement between partners.

If you need an identification type that is not present you might want to create it. Read more about how to manage identification types in the Identification types article.

One this page, there is a data grid displaying the different identification types and values registered on the partner. From here you can edit, delete and create new identification records. You can learn more about how Link data grids work in the Data grids article.
