Price Rule Search

You can narrow down the price rules using the search feature. You can either define search criteria to search for a range of price rules or use the price rule search option.

Basic Search

In basic search, you can search for a price rule using keywords. For example, you can search using the name of the price rule. 

  1. In the Search this list field, enter a keyword related to your price rule name.
  2. Click the search icon  or press Enter. CPQ returns all price dimensions that contain that keyword in the price dimension names.

Sorting Price Rule

You can sort the price rules by clicking the column names. The price rules are sorted alphabetically. Every time you click the column name, the sorting switches between ascending and descending order. You can adjust the column width by dragging the columns. Hover near the column boundaries till two-way arrow appears. Click when the arrow appears and drag left or right to adjust the column width.
