This chapter covers the following topics:
This chapter details the necessary setup needed to access the Configurator in Oracle Order Management. For details on implementing Configure to Order (CTO), refer to the Oracle Configure to Order Implementation Manual. Refer to the section on Configure to Order Process to see how Order Management is integrated with CTO, ATO, PTO and KITS and how these items are processed to their fulfillment.
You must have the following setup in place before using the CTO process and Configurator window in the Sales Order Window:
The status of configurator product must be in complete installed mode (Status = ‘I').
This profile determines when included items for Model, Class or Kit are frozen. Once the included items are frozen, they cannot be re-exploded. The profile has the following values:
Entry - Indicates included items will be exploded at the time the MODEL, CLASS or KIT is entered
Booking - If the profile value is booking, the included items will be exploded at the time of booking
Pick Release - If the profile value is pick release, the included items will be exploded when the parent line reaches workflow activity 'SHIP_LINE' in the flow
None: When the profile is set to this value, the included items will not be processed. Even if the model has included items defined in its BOM, these will not be reflected in Order Management.
This profile option indicates the Oracle Configurator Servlet URL, which is where the Oracle Configurator Servlet resides. This profile option must be set correctly for the host application to locate the Oracle Configurator Servlet. The person installing Oracle Applications supplies this URL when running Oracle Rapid Install. Oracle Rapid Install uses this information as the default value for BOM: Configurator URL of UI Manager. If you recently upgraded to a new version of Oracle Configurator, verify that this profile option is set correctly.
All URLs in your profile options should be specified with the URL format:
machine_name.domain:port_number; where machine_name is the name of the server machine, domain is your domain name, and port_number is the port where your service is running. The Apache server port is typically 880n. For example: http://appsmachine.appsdomain:8800/configurator/oracle.apps.cz.servlet.UiServlet.
