Error description

  • When using the ProductDataBean to display the Maximum and
    Minimum price for the Items that are within a Product, the
    ProductDataBean will consider all item prices for the product
    regardless of whether the items are entitled for the shopper.
    This can lead to a price range that may include prices of items
    which are not published or available to shoppers, causing a
    potentially misleading value being reported when displaying the
    range to the shopper.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • USERS AFFECTED:
    WebSphere Commerce users on v.7.0 who use the ProductDataBean to
    display price ranges, and have Products with multiple SKUs/Items
    with different prices where certain Items are not
    entitled/published for all users and the non-entitled Item(s) is
    the lowest or highest price within the range of Item prices for
    the Product.
    
    PROBLEM ABSTRACT:
    The ProductDataBean includes non-entitled products when
    calculating item Price Ranges.
    
    BUSINESS IMPACT:
    A misleading price range for a product may be displayed in the
    storefront.
    
    RECOMMENDATION:
    

Problem conclusion

  • The ProductDataBean has been modified to only look-up the prices
    of entitled items while calculating the price range for the
    product, rather than considering all items for the product.
