SAP CPQ Scripting Documentation


Showing custom messages













Quote 1.0 Quote 2.0

Quote.Messages.Add("Script is executed")


from Scripting.Quote import MessageLevel
context.Quote.AddMessage("Success", MessageLevel.Success, False)
context.Quote.AddMessage("Error", MessageLevel.Error, False)
context.Quote.AddMessage("Info", MessageLevel.Info, False)
context.Quote.AddMessage("Warning", MessageLevel.Warning, False)
context.Quote.AddMessage("Success", MessageLevel.Success, True)
context.Quote.AddMessage("Error", MessageLevel.Error, True)
context.Quote.AddMessage("Info", MessageLevel.Info, True)
context.Quote.AddMessage("Warning", MessageLevel.Warning, True)


Setting visibility of Custom Field


Quote.GetCustomField("Custom Field 2").Visible = False

Quote.GetCustomField("Custom Field 1").Visible = True

To format custom field to Decimal Value (commas as thousand separators)


##CTX Tag ##

<*CTX( Number(<*CTX(Quote.CustomField(Net Price) )*>).ToFormat(1234.56))*>
### Output ##
1,234.56

convertdouble = 12345.87
converted = format(convertdouble, "03,.2f")

###Output####
12,345.87

if Quote.OrderStatus is not None:
if Quote.OrderStatus.NameTranslated == "Waiting for Approval":
Quote.ChangeQuoteStatus("Approved")

Setting Quote Total Amount


result += Quote.Total.ShippingCost

if Quote.IncludeTaxInTotalPrice:
result += Quote.Total.TaxAmount
result += Quote.Total.VatAmount

Quote.Total.TotalAmount = result

Add your scripts to Trace the logs for Troubleshooting


Log.Info("Script is started")
Log.Info("Script is Ended")

Trace.Write("Script is Started")
