Part Display Number


When CPQ Cloud customers use Partner Organizations—other companies that sell products on their behalf—there may be instances when a Partner Organization uses a different part number for the same item. Or, a part can be called by the same name but may refer to different physical parts altogether for different companies.

To avoid confusion, add a second part identifier, called the Part Display Number, to a part.

With the Part Display Number field on a part’s administration page, different parts can display the same part number—the Part Display Number—to sales users, while still having unique part numbers for use in CPQ Cloud parts administration.

In this example, three companies—the Host Company and two Partner Organizations—have three different parts that share the same Part Display Number, which is shown to each company’s sales users.

  Host Company Partner Organization 1 Partner Organization 2
Part Display Number SERVICE-01 SERVICE-01 SERVICE-01

The Part Display Number attribute can be used like any other attribute:
