How to Check Price Actions as a Shortcut for Troubleshooting Price Rules in CPQ



Price rules in CPQ are a key component that allow businesses to automate their pricing strategies. However, troubleshooting price rules can be a complex process. One useful shortcut is to check the Price Actions associated with a rule. Here's how to do it:

Navigate to the Price Rule Detail Page: To begin troubleshooting a price rule, go to the Price Rule Detail page in CPQ. This can be done by going to the CPQ app, clicking on the Price Rules tab, and selecting the relevant rule.

Identify the Price Actions: Once on the Price Rule Detail page, scroll down to the Price Actions related list. Here, you will find all the actions associated with the rule. Price actions are the steps that are executed when the rule is triggered, such as setting a discount or adjusting the price based on quantity.

Review the Price Actions: Take a closer look at each of the price actions associated with the rule. Ensure that they are all working as intended and are configured correctly. If you notice any issues, you can edit or delete the price action as needed.

Check the Order of the Price Actions: The order in which the price actions are executed can impact the final price. Make sure that the order of the price actions is correct and reflects your pricing strategy. For example, you may want to apply a discount before adjusting the price based on quantity.

Test the Price Rule: Once you have reviewed and verified the price actions, it's time to test the price rule. Create a test quote and ensure that the pricing is correct. If you notice any issues, you can go back to the Price Rule Detail page and make additional changes as needed.

Checking price actions is a valuable shortcut when troubleshooting price rules in CPQ. By reviewing the price actions associated with a rule, you can quickly identify and resolve issues.
