Merge Method

This method is one of the Product Manipulation Toolkit Business Service Methods. It merges the components of one integration object (product instance) under the header of another integration object.

NOTE:  Before this method is called, Set Product Instance must be called to cache the target product instance.



[in] Source product instance to be merged. (Required)


[out] Merged product instances. (Required)


A single product instance containing the merged assets.


This method receives two property sets as input, each containing a complex object with hierarchical assets, quotes, or order items. It copies all the line items from the source complex object to the target (cached) complex object. The target object's header information (quote or order headers) are retained. The merged complex object is returned in an output argument property set.
