Systems and System-related objects should be visible in the Portal UI.

There should be a way to view a system, its extensions, and profile references in the PEM Portal. This would provide users with easy access to this information as a reference when a campaign is not currently open for that system. It would also give users a more holistic view of all of the protocol configurations belonging to any one partner.

How will this idea be used?

A technical team member needs to look up the value of a field stored as a System extension. The team member can currently only do this via API.

    The ability to create, update, and provision System Configurations and Profile references is required as well. Currently the only interaction point is through APIs.

    The documentation website also needs to be updated to include System Configurations. There is no documentation on how these work and are used.
