Order Batch Pricing

Have you ever wondered if there was an easier way to reprice existing orders?

One way to price or re-price existing Orders is by querying for those Orders and manually choosing the “Price Line” or “Price Order” action from the form. Alternatively a call can be made to Process Order API with “PRICE_ORDER” or “PRICE_LINE” action for the specified Orders / Lines.

The first approach requires users to query for the Orders and/or Lines in the user interface either using Sales Order or Order Organizer. Manually selecting all the Orders/Lines and then choosing the Price Order/Price Line action.

In the second approach, user will have to make a call to Process Order API. This requires PL/SQL knowledge to write a wrapper API that would fetch all the required Orders/Lines matching a criteria and then pass the Orders/Lines to Process Order API with the Pricing Action.

As of R12.1.1, there is a concurrent program that can easily be submitted from the user interface and can Price the Orders/Lines matching the input criteria. The Batch Price concurrent program attempts to price items as specified by input parameters for any open orders or lines. Batch Pricing honors the Calculate Price Flag on the individual order lines.  This concurrent program will execute in the background using parallel processing, so that users can continue with their activities.

For more information please refer to the Order Management Users Guide Batch Price Concurrent Program section or Doc ID 580068.1 12.1.1 Oracle Order Management Release Notes.
