News regarding Specification Exchange
With the SAP Enterprise Product Development 2108 release out, you can now fully utilize the specification exchange functionality with properties.
Administrators can now define property groups in the Configure Provisional Specifications app, which then are added to templates and used in provisional specifications for collaborations with suppliers.
What’s more, you can also replicate your active phrase sets to your cloud system and use the phrases with properties.
Last but not least, administrators are now able to delete provisional specifications, which helps in maintaining a clear database.

The document Most Common Problems is also updated with new information, so it may be worth a check if you have trouble setting up the scenario:
