Managed and Unmanaged Order Summaries

When you use the Order Summary object for Lightning B2B Commerce, the order summary lifecycle is often managed by an external order management system.

When updates are made in your external system, they must be reflected in Salesforce. Use the OrderLifeCycleType field on the Order Summary object to manage external system information by selecting the unmanaged value.

  • The managed value identifies an order summary created by Salesforce Order Management.
  • The unmanaged value identifies an order summary created by Lightning B2B Commerce.

Users with the Edit Unmanaged Order Summaries or B2B Commerce Integrator User permission can export or update an order summary with an unmanaged value.
