We are experiencing quite a growing group of customers who has implemented external sales processes using constraint based configurators. The reason for using an external configurator are mainly based on requirements related to Web based sales processes. I would like to suggest to have a data entity or API developed for D365FO, which will enable a Configuration import function together with a sales order import function. This means creating a configuration from imported external set Attribute values per sales line. The values should be imported and validated in the constraint motor exactly as they were typed in, but of cause throwing execution errors in a log. If the validation is succesfull the system goes on by creating BOM, routing an pricing calculation in exactly the same ways as if they we typed in.

Thank you for your feedback.

Currently this is not in our roadmap; however, we are tracking it and we may consider it in the future.

Sincerely,

I join to comments above. PC functionality in integration scenarios is getting highly demand. More and more customers are interesting to integrate their third-party applications to follow CPQ approach and they want to use Dynamics as back office. In such cases very helpful that Dynamics performs background configuration - creating config based on solver values provided, creates BOM lines, routes operations and a lot of other stuff which can not be done by third party app. But we as partners cannot give them a solution because on Dynamics side we have just a single class which exposes short functionality of PC framework. And even then we have to implement a lot of stuff to expose that functionality via application/inbound rest api on Dynamics side (for example). We definitely need to have at least full support of configuration process in background. I don't even talk about out of the box integration points.

There are multiple clients I've worked with that would greatly benefit from this functionality and may end up having to look at other options in order to support their growing needs to expose the configurator options to online sales.

Hi, is there any news on the topic? We need the possibility to use a product configurator in CE and D365 Supply Chain.

Best regards
