Populating Fields in Variant Item-Site Planning Records
In this scenario, item-site planning records that are created by Configurator for each variant item need to be updated with specific settings—for example, minimum order quantities.
To deal with the situation, you can create an external entity that populates variant item-site planning records.
1 Set up a configurable item that creates variant item-site records.
• If you want to create item-site records for all sites defined for the configurable item, set Variant Item Site Record to All Sites.
• If you want to create only one item-site record, set Variant Item Site Record to Current Site Only and create a variable/feature you reference in Site Variable.
2 Create an external entity to select the ptp_det record with the following selection rule (based on your setup in the previous step)
• ptp_domain = sysDomainID, ptp_part = sysVariantItemID, ptp_site = your site
• ptp_domain = sysDomainID, ptp_part = sysVariantItemID, ptp_site = site variable
3 Create an external entity rule that assigns values to your wanted ptp_ field.
