You can exclude options, bundles, and sub-bundles that are marked optional from the min/max criteria validation of the option group. When marked as options using the Is Optional checkbox, options or bundles as optional are not considered in the Min Options, Max Options, Min Total Quantity, and Max Total Quantity criteria if this setting is enabled. This feature is useful for excluding the price and quantity of optional products from the total. To exclude optional products from min/max criteria, you need to enable the Exclude Options Products custom setting.

To enable optional product exclusion

  1. In CPQ Admin, go to Application Management > Config Page > Display Settings.
  2. Select Exclude Optional Products.
  3. Click Save.
  4. Execute the Custom Settings Maintenance batch job.

For more information on marking products are optional, refer to Configuring Products from the Catalog.
