Product Catalog

The following list explains the parameters in the Product Catalog tab.

  • Allow Comparing In Catalog: enables Users to compare products in the Catalog.
  • Allow Paging In Catalog: defines whether products are divided into page sections with a minimum of 5 products per page and a maximum of 100 per page. When set to FALSE, all products within a category are grouped on one page.

  • Attribute comparation display option: enables administrators to permit Users to compare various attributes and Attribute Values in products.
  • Catalog Loading Simple Products:optimizes the loading time of simple products. When set to FAST, the loading time is the shortest. If a formula is used in product price or product description, it is not parsed. Provided that no base price is defined, Users see the formula expression and 0 (zero), respectively. The following example illustrates this point.

Example
A sample product “Warranty” with product code “Warr-1-yrs-extended” has its description defined this way:

Discount factor: <* TABLE ( SELECT Discount FROM contracts WHERE contract_name = 'Contract 12073' ) *> <br/>
  * Visitor name:  <* VisitorName *> <br/> 
  * Product code: <* ProductCode *>

Its price is defined as a formula:

<*Eval(100*<* TABLE ( SELECT Discount FROM contracts WHERE contract_name = 'Contract 12073' ) *>)*>


The base price is not defined.

Figure 1 - Parameter is set to “Fast”


When set to WITH PARSING, formulas are parsed but no product detail is loaded. If the formula contains any product detail tag, the product detail is not retrieved even though the tag itself is parsed.

In the example, both product description and price are parsed, but product code is not retrieved and therefore is not displayed.

Figure 2 - Parameter is set to “With Parsing”


When set to WITH DETAIL PARSING, it instructs SAP CPQ to load product details as well, so any product detail tag is parsed along with other formulas. With this parameter value, the sample product is displayed within the Catalog.

Figure 3 - Parameter is set to “With Detail Parsing”


When set to WITH FULL DETAIL NO RULES PARSING, it instructs SAP CPQ to load all the details related to the product except rules.
To demonstrate this option, the product “Warranty” is modified by adding the attribute “Payment”. This attribute has two values — “semiannually” and “annually”, with their prices $30 and $50, respectively. The pricing formula is modified as well. It now reads the attribute price and sets it as a product price. The pricing formula is:

<*PRICE(Payment)*>

In addition, a rule which selects the attribute value is defined, so the pricing formula picks the selected attribute value and assigns it as a product price. The rule condition is:

1

The rule action is:

<*SELECTVALUES(Payment:2)*>


Since this option does not parse rules, the product price is 0 (zero).

Figure 4 - Parameter is set to “With full detail no rules parsing”


When set to WITH FULL DETAIL PARSING, it instructs SAP CPQ to load and execute product rules. To demonstrate, the very same product used for the previous option is used again, but this time, the price is calculated and applied to the product because product rules are executed.

Figure 5 - Parameter is set to “With full detail parsing”


  • Catalog Loading Configurable Products: optimizes the loading time of configurable products. When set to any value other than FAST, a product price and the Add to quote checkbox are shown in the Catalog. This way it is possible to add several configurable products at once in the Quote. When set to FAST, the configuration state is unknown and assumed to be incomplete, so no prices are shown. In addition, when Guided Selling Product Search results are shown, if Guided Selling Product configuration applied to a catalogue product makes it complete, price and Add to quote will appear. Price parsing and calculations for the Guided Selling Product results are controlled by the Catalog Loading Attribute Based Search.
  • Use Default Image: determines whether a default image is shown for products. The default image is assigned to products that do not have an image.
  • Default Product Image Name: specifies the name of the file used as the default product image. This image file must exist in SAP CPQ’s images folder.

  • Show customize button for simple products: removes blank space in simple products. If there are no configurable products, the Customize button is hidden.
  • Hide categories within the catalog when tree navigation is available: defines whether the Catalog is visible on the User side. When set to FALSE, the Catalog is visible.
  • When users press 'Add Item' in quote, it will take them to the top catalog category: defines whether Users are transferred to the root catalog category when they click Add Item in the Quote. When set to FALSE, Users are redirected to the last category that was visited in the Catalog.
  • Always reset filters in catalog: defines whether SAP CPQ sets filters (description search, part number search) defined during the previous session. When set to FALSE, SAP CPQ sets description search by default.
  • Remain in Catalog after adding product to the quote: determines whether Users remain in Catalog after adding a product to Quote. When set to FALSE, Users are directed to the Quote.
  • Show product image within the Quote summary in Catalog: defines whether the image of the product added to Quote pops up in Summary.
  • Show icon within the Quote summary in Catalog to clarify whether product is already in the Quote: defines whether SAP CPQ displays a small orange-colored cart icon in the Summary window when a product is already in the Quote. Note that this parameter is valid only when the Remain in Catalog after adding product to the quote parameter is set to TRUE.
  • Disable category rank sort for categories having more than: allows administrators to disable the rank sort in categories, depending on the number of products they contain. When set to 1000, categories containing more than 1000 products do not display the rank sort.

The first parameter, Line Item Info Propagate Qty From Main Item, will propagate quantity only to its children on the first level, while Propagate Quantity to Nested Products will propagate quantity from main item to all of its descendants, that is too all levels below. Take a look at Figure E below to see what application parameters we are referring to.
