Using Depot Repair Global Variables for Advanced Pricing (Doc ID 1409827.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 27, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Depot Repair - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Form:CSDREPLN.FMB - Repairs


'Out of the box' Depot Repair supports a limited number of pricing qualifiers to calculate the price through Advanced Pricing for items on logistics lines, Estimates and Actuals. These are implemented in the code specifically.  These qualifiers can be used in the pricing modifier definition without the need to do any customization.

The seeded qualifiers are

Context Attribute Description in Depot
Customer Customer Name Customer Account Id
Customer Party ID Party ID
Customer Customer Class Customer Class
Order Order Type Order Type
Order Line Type Line Type
Order Line Category Code Line Category Code
Party Information Sales Organization Operating Unit

Additionally, Depot Repair APIs also populate a number of what are known as Global Variables. These are attribute values that will have a value within the pl/sql session that is trying to retrieve the price (i.e. when the user is entering the record in the form). They are not visible to the user, but they can be used in the advanced pricing setup.

The following attributes can be referenced as CSD_REPAIRS_PUB.G_LINE.<attribute name>.
For example, to access incident_id in the PLSQL code use CSD_REPAIRS_PUB.G_LINE.incident_id

Variable Name Description
incident_id   (Service Request ID) Incident Id
repair_line_id Repair Line Id
inventory_item_id Inventory Item Id
unit_of_measure_code Unit of Measure
quantity Quantity
currency_code Currency Code
account_id Account Id
party_id Party Id
bill_to_site_use_id Bill to Site Use Id
ship_to_site_use_id Ship to Site Use Id
customer_class Customer Class
org_id Operating Unit
order_type_id Order Type Id
line_type_id Line Type Id
line_category_code Line Category Code
txn_billing_type_id Transaction Billing Type Id
price_list_header_id Price List Header Id
pricing_context Pricing Context
pricing_attribute1 through pricing_attribute100 Attributes (1 to 100)

Though the APIs do populate these global variables, using them in the application so that they actually have impact on the price in Depot Repair cannot be done without some customizations.
This document describes the required setup (through a real business case), including customizations that have to be built.

This functionality using Global Variables is currently available on the latest patch levels as the global variables need to be declared  in API CSD_REPAIRS_PUB (csdpdras.pls) and populated in CSD_PROCESS_UTILget_charge_selling_price (csdvutlb.pls)
