The main subject of this article is the issue of displaying variant condition records in Responder when SAP CPQ integrates with SAP ERP (A)VC through SAP Variant Configuration and Pricing (VCP for short).

According to Pricing | SAP Help Portal, pricing records of variant condition keys should be listed one by one in the Responder of the Configurator page.


However, some users may find it that even the integration has been set up following the guidance in SAP Help Portal, pricing records of variant condition keys are not displayed in the Responder. Why is this?

Through communication with SAP Tickets, we learned the design idea of the SAP CPQ product manager for this function: To display variant conditions in the Responder, the following three conditions must be met in the response payload of SAP VCP Stateless Pricing API:

  1. VarCond == true
  2. InactiveFlag in {' ','W'}
  3. Statistical = false

The first condition indicates that the pricing record is based on the variant condition key; the second one reflects the validity of the price condition record; and the third one means that the condition type is set to non-statistical type in the Pricing Procedure.

This is the current product design. If your business needs are different, you are welcomed to provide feedback in SAP CPQ (Configure Price Quote) - Customer Influence (sap.com). Your input may impact the future development of SAP's products and services. We appreciate your support and contribution.
