New Features in SAP Subscription Billing (2020-12-10)

Welcome back to our blog series about new features in SAP Subscription Billing! Today’s blog is a bit special as it is our last one before winter vacations and the new year! So let’s finish this year together on a good note and take a look at what’s new in our last delivery:

New filtering options in the Customers app

In the Customers app, on the Subscriptions and Bills tabs, new filter bars are available. You can change the filters that are displayed by default to adjust them to your needs.

For the Subscriptions tab, the default filters are: Product, Status, Created Between, and Expires Between.

subscription%20tab%20filters

Subscriptions tab filters

For the Bills tab, the default filters are: Bill Status, Transfer Status, Billing Date Between, and Bill Split Element.

bills%20tab%20filters

Bills tab filters

Improved search in the Rate Plans app

In the Rate Plans app, the search for rate plan templates has been improved. You can now open a search dialog and search for existing rate plan templates by ID, description, or tag.

Rate%20plan%20search

Rate plan templates search

It opens a value help you can use to search for your rate plan templates, like below:

Value%20help%20for%20better%20search

Value help for better search

Improved search in the Products API

In the products API, the query parameter “ratePlanId” has been added to the endpoint “/products/search” (GET). You can use this parameter to search a product by rate plan ID.

New bill status during closing

Bills now have the status Closing during the short time when the final processing steps are taking place to ensure the completeness of the bills. This new status is also visible on the UI so that you have full transparency about this transition phase between an “open” and “closed” bill.

      Hi Elodie Brenker,

      thanks for your feature update. Is there already a feature planed, that improves the selection of rate plan while creating a new abo / subscription? at the moment you can just select the rate plan by inserting the alphanumeric id by our self.

      thanks and regards, Jonathan

      Hi Jonathan Klotz

      Thank you very much for your feedback! To answer your question: the provisioning request is not an area on which we are focussing at the moment, so we do not have in our planning to improve this particular field on short term. But be sure I will communicate your feedback internally to our teams.

      You can find our next planned UI improvements on our public roadmap.

      Have a great day,

      Élodie
