APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Consider the following scenario:
    1. A user configures a Dynamic Kit and adds the kit to their
    cart
     2. The user logs out
     3. An administrator updates the pricing of this model in
    Sterling Configurator/Visual Modeler (ex. mark-up/mark-down)
     4. The user returns to their cart, but their Dynamic Kit does
    not reflect the price update
    
     Another scenario is as follows:
     When a preconfigured Dynamic Kit is modified (and made possibly
    invalid), shoppers may not be made aware of such changes when
    adding the kit to their carts.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • USERS AFFECTED:
     WebSphere Commerce users on v7.0 integrating with Sterling
    Configurator
    
     PROBLEM ABSTRACT:
     Modified Dynamic Kit configurations are not validated at the
    shopping cart
    
     BUSINESS IMPACT:
     Dynamic Kit changes may not be reflected accurately until after
    submitting the order.
    
     RECOMMENDATION:
    

Problem conclusion

  • With this fix, all Dynamic Kits are validated again when viewing
     the cart. Additionally, preconfigured Dynamic Kits will be
    validated again at the time they are added to the cart, as well
    as during the PrepareOrder phase.
    
     The way the Sterling API was invoked has been modified to call
    extractPicksFromConfigurationBOM, then generateConfigurationBOM
    to replace the validateConfiguration call.
