Enable an organization for purchasing

To be able to book paid subscriptions, you have to enable your organization for purchasing.

  • If you are a Bosch employee, logged in with your Bosch Login credentials, you need to configure the Bosch cost center that will be billed for your paid subscriptions. For that, a Purchaser role in the organization is required.
    Once entered, the cost center cannot be changed.
    How to set the cost center is described below in Edit an organization.

  • If you are a customer from outside Bosch, logged in with your Bosch ID credentials, and you want to purchase a paid subscription, you need to create a support request.

Once you have enabled your organization for purchasing, its details will appear like this:
