|IPE||Internal Price Engine|
Internal Pricing Guide enables administrator to maintain data, configure major pricing steps and pricing scheme and sum up sales item price and quote price.
CPQ has available 3 pricing categories, these are:
- Internal pricing is based on the pricing scheme and pricing steps maintained in CPQ system.
- External pricing is done with the help of pricing simulation in ERP system. All the price related information such as pricing procedures, condition tables, condition types, access sequences is maintained in the ERP system. It involves a BAPI (Business Application Programming Interface) call with parameters maintained in CPQ. BAPI returns the pricing of each of the sales Items and whole quotation together with breakdown of each sales item pricing. (For the moment, we skipped this portion)
Basic Pricing based on SPARQL (Deprecated)
- Based on the user model, the pricing calculation methods are written in SPARQL and is maintained in CPQ system. This is not supported after 1711 release
Determination for pricing categories is handled by the setting in CPQ. To enable internal pricing, setting “Enable Internal Pricing” must be turn on. In this document, we will focus on “Internal Pricing Engine (IPE)”.
