Custom Flow for Pricing Variable Calculation
You can implement custom flow for pricing variable calculation with Standard Cart APIs. The process involves 2 steps:
- Setting Up the Interface
- Using the Existing Data
Create a custom apex class as follows: Ensure to add the namespace of the org before class and method names in the managed orgs.
Create an interface as follows:
Run EPC Compile job.
The data passed in the input and output map of the
calculate method is as follows:
objectType: This field stores the type of object passed like orderItem. It can be fetched using
isRoot: This value represents if the item being calculated is the bundle's root. It can be fetched using
effectiveQuantity: This field stores the quantity of the item passed. It can be fetched using
- Map<String, Object>
pricingVariableCodeValueMap: This map stores values of relevant pricing variables mapped to its code. It can be fetched using
- Map<String, Integer>
pricingVariableCodeToRoundingScale: This has the map for rounding scale to pricing variable code. It can be fetched using
- Map<String, String>
pricingVariableCodeToFieldBindingLabels: This has the map for field binding labels to pricing variable code. It can be fetched using
isCostAndMarginFeatureEnabled: This value represents if Cost and Margin feature is enabled. It can be fetched using
marginCalculationType: This field stores margin calculation type which is information relevant to cost and margin feature. It can be fetched using
cartDocument: This is a custom-type map that stores extensive information about the current cart. This cannot be extracted directly using
getoperator. Please use methods specifically designed for CartDocument to get relevant information. For more information, see Use Cart Documents.
itemId: This stores the itemId for the current lineitem that is being processed. Depending on the org GUID (
UseAssetReferenceIdForParentAndRootCPQ Config) value, it can be salesforceId or assetreferenceId. It can be fetched using
Please do not try using debug statements that serialize the input map.
System.debug('debug post input: '+json.serialize(input));
Input map contains an object for CartDocument, which is a custom Java type and cannot be serialized directly by the apex layer. Please use methods specifically designed for CartDocument to get relevant information.
- Map<String, Object>
calculatedPricingLogData: This stores the pricing information for pricing variables of the processed item. It can be fetched using
- Based on the itemId (salesforceId or GUID) in the input map, additional queries can be written to find out more details about the item including relational fields.
- Query to get the GUID status of the org:
- To get the XLI custom field values without doing an additional SOQL call, we can use the ‘fields’ param in the getCartItems API. This would populate this custom field response in cartDocument in case it is a non-null value.
