CRM 4.0 Opportunity Product, Quote Product, Order Product, and Invoice Product attribute mapping/Sales Pipleline RRS feed

  • Question

  • There is no ability to map custom attributes added to the Opportunity Product, Quote Product, Order Product, or Invoice Product entities.  There appears to be a workaround for v3.0




    and I have tried a suggested fix using the Metadata Web Service (GetAppMetadataForEntity)




    but this code returns an internal server error 500 when you specify an objectTypeCode and can't get any further. Is anyone aware of a workaround to this problem?  This is a big limitation in our migration off of Siebel.


    A related problem to the Opportunity Product entity. The opportunityproduct.productdescription and opportunityproduct.description fields are selectable fields to include on views but there does not appear to be a way to populate them with data from the Products entity as one would expect; ie through mapping or accessibilty through Workflow.

  • Hi!

    This case is possible you can affect the system process. I have made a long time of recherches to fix exactly that case. I have made some Customizations in some System Entities especially in the product lines.

    The Solution:

    Export the corresponding entities and then edit the xml data. Here is an excerpt of the xml data of the quoteproduct entity.


    Here at the end is the new attribut. The Mapping goes from the quotedetail to the salesorderdetail.

    I don't know if this way is supported - but it really functional.
