Custom Part Fields


Custom part fields can be used to create part filters or supplement the set of base attributes available for parts. For more information on part filters, see Part Filters.

CPQ Cloud supports up to 30 custom part fields. These fields are pre-defined and can be hidden or displayed on the search pages.


There are 30 fields in all.
