  3. Hi neel,
    Last week i was trying to follow the C/OM course from Oracle. I was able to do almost everything given in the Labs but two of the configurations just did not work.

    1. Attribute pricing
    2. Volume discount

    I did all the steps to setup attribute pricing, but when i selected a certain attribute in the UI, the price of the product did not change ;( i have checked rechecked my config. (all the pricing WF were active too). My question is: Is this functionality available in vanilla siebel running on Sample DB? has anyone here tried it successfuly on vanilla siebel?

    the story for volume discounts was the same, its quiet simple to setup, but when in quotes i tried “re price all” for the discount to be applied, nothing happened.

    all the rest of the product config (customize, bundle etc) worked perfectly.

    Any ideas ?

    TIA

    probably you need to disable the pricing from template by picking the manual reprice template and by editing the product and control templates..
    to disable the pricing you can also disable the signals from the Admin>OrderManagement screen…
    but to remove the header you will hav to change the templates…hope this helps 🙂

  13. Hi Neel,

    Thanks for all your posts, these find relevance in our day to day work.
    I have a question on the lines of the above topic.
    I want to know what exactly a Siebel Product is?
    ——— I think it could be a collection of modules and services.
    If this is so, is there any direct relationship available between siebel Products and Views in Siebel.
    We are stuck in a Licensing issue and need to find the Products used by each user……..so just thinking if we could find the relationship between Products and views from somewhere except the Local TAM. Any help in this regard is appreciated.

    Also, how is it defined, which product a customized object is related to?

    Regards,
    Pramod.

  19. Do you know
    if companies with very complex products (many hierarchical/conditional levels) use
    a complementary tool to maintain their product structure breakdown (maybe
    allowing for graphical representation)?
    Such tool could then feed automatically Siebel CPQ? What would be an
    example of this tool?

    Thank you,

  20. Hi,
