Remember: Variable Maps are used by the PSP driver workflows to build the row sets that are passed to the pricing procedure workflows.
Variable Maps specify the structure of the row set by defining the variables that appear in the row set and the source of the data.
The Variable Source is defined by the Source Type and the Path
The Source Type of Instance refers to business components in the active business object. The Path does not refer directly to the business component and its field. Rather, it is defined in terms of an integration object that maps to the business object/component/fields.
To add a new Variable to a Variable Map
1. Lock the Variable Map
Administration - Order Management > Variable Maps
2. Create the Variable Definition
Determines the name to be used in pricing procedure business services
3. Create the Variable Source
Identify the Integration Component Field that references the new Business Field
4. Release the Variable Map
To learn more about variable maps I can recommend the 3-day course: Siebel 8.0 Customer Order Management: Pricing Configuration.
