Optional: Configuring deal registration

By using deal registration, channel managers avoid channel conflicts with duplicated deals. Partner sellers register deals and can only start working on it after the deal is approved by channel managers. Deal registration is supported only for the B2B selling mode.

The following steps are required only after upgrading from versions earlier than 8.1.
To configure deal registration, perform the following steps:
  1. Optional:

    To view and work on deals, add the crmCanViewDeals privilege to the channel manager and partner operator access roles in your implementation layer.

    If your implementation role already has this product role configured as dependent, then this change is not required because it is covered through inheritance.
  2. In the implementation lead class inheriting from the PegaCRM-Work-SFA-Lead class, expose PartnerID and IsPartnerSourced properties.

  3. In the implementation opportunity class inheriting from the PegaCRM-Work-SFA-Opportunity class, expose PartnerID and IsPartnerSourced properties.

  4. In your implementation layer, in the Lead case type, on the Processes tab, add the DealSubmitForApproval flow to the Case wide supporting processes list.
