This section explains how you can change assets in the Contract flow.

Prerequisite

  • Ensure that the custom setting Auto Create Order is set to True under Setup > Develop > Custom Settings > Comply System Properties.
  • Assets are already created.

To change assets in the contract flow

  1. In the Salesforce org, select Apttus Contract Management.
  2. Create an agreement for asset change.

    The new agreement is not related to the agreement that was created during the new sale. CPQ does not support versioning of the original agreement.

  3. Click Configure Products and navigate to the Installed Products page.

    Using the Amend button on an agreement does not amend assets. You must use the Configure Products button on the agreement to change assets through the Cart. Also, CPQ allows you to modify all assets associated with an account, not just the assets associated with that particular agreement.

  4. Select the asset you want to update and click Change. On the cart page, Line Status changes to Amended

  5. You can change one or more of the following parameters:

    ParameterDescription
    Attribute Value

    To change the Attribute value, click the wrench icon () next to the asset. You will see the Product Attributes page.
    Select the new attribute value and click Go to Pricing to load the cart page.

  6. Click Reprice to view the changed price.
  7. Click Finalize to navigate back to the agreement. CPQ creates the agreement line items.
  8. Click Generate to generate an agreement document.
  9. After the negotiations are complete with your customer, click Activate to bring the agreement in effect.
