Aria for Salesforce Fixes

  • The List Price, Net Price and Total now show the expected value when you select a non-default Billing Interval for a Plan when adding that Plan to an Opportunity. Previously, they showed 0.00. (SFDC-164)
  • On an Account's Opportunities screen, the Billing Interval's List Price, Net Price and Total now show the expected value. Previously, they showed 0.00. (SFDC-165) 
  • In Aria For Salesforce Lightning, you can now edit units of mandatory Supplemental Plan Instance when assigning new Master Plan Instance as expected on a new Account. (SFDC-169)
  • Once a Contract is saved on an Account, you can now update a Plan Instance and commit the update to that Account as expected. Previously, Salesforce.com returned an Invalid "Input Type" error when attempting to commit the Plan Instance update. (SFDC-203)
  • You can now update the Billing Group on the Future Plan Changes screen of an Account as expected. Previously, this resulted in an error. (SFDC-232/SFDCQA-974)
  • Custom rates are now correctly identified in the Aria For Salesforce data model, allowing accurate discounted charges for Plans with custom rates. Previously, custom rates in Aria For Salesforce were not flagged, so discounts were calculated using rates associated with rate schedules configured when the associated Plan was created. (SFDC-242/SFDCQA-972)
  • You can now initiate the removal of a coupon from a Master Plan on a future date, as with other future plan changes, as expected. Previously, this coupon directive was not honored when Aria For Salesforce executed the plan change. (SFDC-243/SFDCQA-971)
  • On an Account's Opportunity detail screen, you can now update the Payment Method associated with a Billing Group to a Credit Card or Tokenized Credit Card, and commit that change, as expected. Previously, no fields appeared when changing to the Credit Card method, and changing to either Tokenized Credit Card or Credit Card resulted in the error, "agreement id OR credit card info is required." (SFDC-244/SFDCQA-973)
  • You can successfully create a Dispute/Hold for an amount that is less than the full amount of the invoice against which the API call to create_writeoff_or_dispute_m is applied. (SFDC-295/SFDCQA-970)
