Configuration rules for pricing orders
Several configuration rules determine pricing behavior for orders.
You can configure the following pricing rules in Distributed Order ManagementTM:
- Which date to use for pricing - Determines whether to use the current date or the
order date for pricing.
This rule is located in the Distributed Order Management Applications Manager.Note: By default, the Pricing Service uses the date specified in the order, if available, to price orders.
- Name of the shipping charge adjustment field - Defines the charge category and
charge name that represent the shipping charge.
This is either a customer-defined shipping charge field or the default that comes with Sterling Order Management System Software, Release 9.1. This rule is located in the Distributed Order Management Applications Manager.
- Use deprecated pricing functionality - Installation rule used after upgrade to
specify whether to use the integrated Pricing Service offered in Sterling Order Management System Software, Release 9.1, or the
legacy Pricing Service (deprecated functionality) from versions prior to Release 8.5.
By default, the deprecated pricing functionality is in effect after upgrade to Release 8.5. If you uncheck this box after upgrade in order to enable the Pricing Service for Release 8.5 or later versions, ensure that you define your pricing configuration rules in the Distributed Order Management Applications Manager and convert your price lists.
