The CPQ automatically enables price ramp on the second charge type, when price ramp is enabled for the first charge type on the cart page. You will observe such behavior in case if your administrator has selected Enable Auto Ramp Creation while configuring the price list item for the product.
If the ramp is on a bundle or standalone product, each ramp line becomes a line in the cart.
In case you defined more than one ramp line for a bundle and its options, if you change the quantity of the bundle in the primary ramp line, the primary ramp line of the options is automatically updated. You need to update the non-primary ramp lines of the options manually. This is true when Enable Auto Ramp and Auto Cascading are enabled.
Please note that if you have selected a custom frequency, you see the following limitation:
- Option Price of Option ramp line is not added to the respective bundle.
- Selling Term is not calculated as per the Start Date and End Date.
- Canceling a ramp line during change operation creates multiple lines.
- A maximum of 50 ramp lines can be created in the current release.
How is price escalator applied on ramp lines during ABO operations?
CPQ applies Price Escalator on new ramp lines created during ABO operations regardless of the Default Asset Pricing Indicator? setting (true or false). A new ramp line always gets its value from the price list item (PLI) pricing. For more information, see Use Case: Applying Price Escalator on New Ramp Lines During ABO Operations.
