The following is a summary of features introduced in the Winter 2018 release.
Support for Legal Entities at the Order Level
The Legal Entity field on the Order object can be specified to enable billing and revenue recognition for related legal entities. When an order line item is activated and an asset is created, the Legal Entity value specified in the order header is copied to the Legal Entity field for the corresponding asset line item.
The following enhancement is introduced in the Winter 2018 release.
Copying Product Attributes from Price Agreement Line Items to Order Line Items for Partial Orders
Product attributes and related line item information from negotiated product configurations is now copied from the Price Agreement (quote or agreement) to the order line items when a partial order is generated. This process only occurs when the "copy from source" flag is enabled through the appropriate API.
