Need capability to apply flat rate/fixed price discount on additional line prices.

Need to have the capability to apply flat rate/ fixed price discount on additional line price. At present, Sterling supports fixed price discount only on Unit Price [As per the information received in IBM Cases]. All other types of discounts such as percentage discount and absolute discount are applicable to additional line prices. We want fixed price discount also to work in similar fashion as absolute and percentage discounts for additonal line prices.


Example Scenario: Apply flat rate of 1.99 on ShippingAndHandling price type of each order line if order total is greater than $100.

getOrderPrice API input

Line 1; Unit Price $25; ShippingAndHandling Price 5; Quantity 1

Line 2; Unit Price $50; ShippingAndHandling Price 10; Quantity 1

Line 3; Unit Price $25; ShippingAndHandling Price 0; Quantity 1

Expected result [ShippingAndHandling price should be 1.99 for applicable lines]

Line 1; Unit Price $25; ShippingAndHandling Price 1.99; Quantity 1

Line 2; Unit Price $50; ShippingAndHandling Price 1.99; Quantity 1

Line 3; Unit Price $25; ShippingAndHandling Price 0; Quantity 1

Current result on Sterling V10 FP27

Line 1; Unit Price $25; ShippingAndHandling Price 5; Quantity 1

Line 2; Unit Price $50; ShippingAndHandling Price 10; Quantity 1

Line 3; Unit Price $25; ShippingAndHandling Price 0; Quantity 1

More details can be found in the business use case document attached
