  • Odin Business Automation Standard 4.x

Symptoms

  1. We need to set the value when placing a new order via XML API with the 'place_order' method.

    There is a parameter 'ext_data' with description "List of extended attributes"

    We tried to the our extended attribute via 'place_order' but it does not work.

  2. Ability to use extended attributes in event conditions and printable forms. We need this for example in "Subscription has been created" event to be able to send the extended attribute value in the email message.

Resolution

In the current implementation, extended attributes passed to 'place_order' do not effect the resulting subscription, they remain the attributes of order.

Here is Feature Request:

PBAS-28997 - [FR] Automatic propagation of ext attributes from order to subscription.

Neither it can be workaround-ed by using custom scripts on order/subscription events, currently there is no way to pass ext attributes from order to subscription:

PBAS-28998 - [FR] Ext attributes need to be available among event placeholders.

Documentation (SDK) is not full, instructions on using 'ext_data' parameter are missing:

PBAS-29000 - Missing instructions on how to use `ext_data` in place_order, create_account etc.

Also submitted:

PBAS-29001 - Ext attributes for order are not visible in GUI after creation.

The fixes are planned to be included in future PBA-S updates.
