Goal

A customer has a requirement that the product configurator should consider the old and new value for a child component product when deciding to add a grandchild product. When the action code is “Add” for the child product in an Asset Based Order then they want to automatically add the grandchild product. Can this be implemented in product configurator with a constraint rule based on a configuration link based on the line item BC "action code" field?

 

For example if a customizable "Product P" exists as an asset and is Modified and then a component child "Product A" is added in configurator then the order line items action codes are as follows:

 

Product P - Action Code - "-"

--- Product A - Action Code - "Add"

 

If Product A has a link item based on the Business Component "Order Entry - Line Items" and field "Action Code", then in configurator the link item displays the value "-" of the root line item and not "Add" as required for the constraint rule.
