The 2 main features of KUT(Key User Tools) focused on 1608 was

  • Model Property Conditions
  • Default in Code List Restriction
  • Rich Text in Formatted Fields

Model Property Conditions

Business Statement

Key users can now define conditions and control the field Properties like Mandatory, Read-only, Visibility. For example when condition like "Country is USA or Canada" then change the property of custom field "Social Security" as Mandatory.

How to enable this Functionality

Model Property Condition is Beta in 1608, Hence if you want to try it in your Test Tenant Please raise an Incident requesting SAP to enable this functionality.

How to achieve this Functionality

  • Go to Adapt > Edit Master Layout
  • Mouse Over the Custom Field "Social Security".
  • Click the Property Icon.
  • Select the Property Mandatory. Click Rule.
  • In the Model Condition Editor. Enter the Sudo Code given below. Press Apply
  • End Layout Changes.

Pseudo-Code for this use case

IF(OR(Root.CurrentDefaultAddress.CountryCode == "US", Root.CurrentDefaultAddress.CountryCode == "CA") , true, false)

Once the Conditions gets created they seamlessly work Online and Offline

The Blog Introduction to SAP Hybris Cloud for Customer Rule Editor will in detail explain How to use the New Model Rule Editor in SAP Hybris Cloud for Customer.

How it works

  • The Model Rules are attached to the Master Layout.

  • Key User shall be able to define rules to change property of fields, sections, facets, action buttons.

  • Rule conditions shall be defined based on the available fields in the UI model.

  • Rules are executed only on client and not on server - No Backend Round Trips!.

  • Since it is a client side logic so user has to write the logic on each screen.

  • Rules run online and offline as well.

  • Rules are applied on Master Layout.

  • During runtime the condition is parsed only once and then evaluated

Here are some more Business use cases for Reference.

Business Use Case

Formula to be used



Customer "XYZ" wants to enforce data quality for Address,If field House Number is left blank for Account or Contact or if it a non numeric value, then Street and State should be made mandatory along with Postal Code


IF(ISNUMBER(Root.CurrentDefaultAddress.HouseID),IF( LEN(Root.CurrentDefaultAddress.HouseID)<2,true,false),false),false)



All "A" classified Customers should have mandatory address fields like Postal Code, street, City, Owner

AND( Root.CustomerABCClassificationCode == "A", Root.Role == "CRM000")



When a Customer's Account is Active then it shouldnot be made as a prospect

IF(Root.LifeCycleStatusCode == 2, true, false) 



Customers of United States of America or Canada needs to provide Social Security Number

IF(OR(Root.CurrentDefaultAddress.CountryCode == "US", Root.CurrentDefaultAddress.CountryCode == "CA") , true, false)



Add Reason if delta of Weighted Value and Negotiated Value of an Opportunity is more than 2500 USD

IF(Root.ExpectedRevenueAmount.content - Root.WeightedExpectedNetAmount.content >2500,true,false)



If an Opportunity is Won then user needs to enter the Delivery Date

IF(Root.LifeCycleStatusCode  == 4, true, false) 



For Opportunites with amount greater than 50,000 $, User should read the Terms and Conditions and Accept the Same.

Now lets check a video on how we can achieve business use case 7 Using Model Rule Editor to create custom rules in SAP Hybris Cloud for Customer

Whats Next

The Conditions will soon be extended for Field Validations as well, wherein the user can create conditions to raise Custom Language dependent Error Messages using the Header Fields of an Object. The conditions can also be written for the list of child objects with capabilities like checking the count of Child Objects(e.g. Check if an Account has at-least one contact or the number of Involved Parties for Account should not exceed 10).

Default in Code List Restriction

CodeList Restrictions are modified to include Defaulting of Code Lists.

Business Statement

If an account is prospect then default the Classification as "C-Classified".

With 1608 enhancement this use case can be achieved by Defaulting Account classification as "C-Classified" when the control field is Type of Account.
