But for now, let’s get started with an overview of the latest new features:
Send allowance notifications
You can now send notifications before and after an allowance expires and when an allowance has reached a designated usage threshold. For example, you could notify the customers 30 days before an allowance expires, so that they have time to purchase a new allowance if necessary. Or you could notify a technical system to deactivate the service as soon as the allowance has expired or been used up.
The notifications are sent outwards through SAP Cloud Platform Enterprise Messaging (for which you require a separate license).
Changes have been made to the following APIs to support allowance notifications: Allowance Templates, Allowances. In addition, the Allowance Events object has been updated.
Set prices for allowances
You can now set prices for allowances that you want to charge separately. When you set a price in the allowance or allowance template, you get a separate bill item for the allowance sale.
