Evaluation of the Customizable Product Structure in Advisor Applications

Because at any time the state of the application is determined by the active row in each Feature table and Configuration table, the data from these active rows is used to create the customizable product structure. When a GetPrice, AddtoSSCart, or GotoSSConfigurator API is invoked at runtime, the application creates a structure from the active rows and passes it to the server for executing the request.

The application can create the customizable product structure in two ways:

  • Automatic Creation
  • Creation in string form

Use automatic creation for one or two-layer customizable product structures to extract attributes for the root product. For more complex product structures, use the set of supporting functions documented for ISS.BuldProductStr in the Siebel-Specific Functions chapter in Siebel Advisor API Reference.
