Configuration Overview


Configuration is defined on the catalog hierarchy in CPQ Cloud. For more information on the catalog hierarchy, see Product Family Hierarchy.

Using Configuration, the buyer can customize the items they are buying by specifying the values of configurable attributes.

    NULL and blank Integer values are treated as separate values.

    Using "null" as an attribute value is strongly discouraged.
