Service Transitions are configured in Setup / Product Catalog / Service / Service Transitions
Service transitions allow you to charge a fee when a service changes from one status to another (e.g. pre-active to active). When configuring package frequencies you can add service transitions and specify a transition charge for any recurring charged service configured on the package (e.g. apply a $50 reactivation fee when ‘Service X’ goes from ‘Suspended’ to ‘Active’ status).
Transition charges can only be configured on recurring charged services, fees or other one-time charges on price frequencies cannot be configured with transition charges.
Service statuses need to be configured before service transitions can be setup
The Service Transitions panel on the left of this screen allows you to select existing transitions to view and edit on the Edit Service Transition panel. Actions are also available in this panel which are shown as icons above the Filter text box. The available actions are described below.
Deletes the selected service transition. Service transitions that are in use cannot be deleted
Adds a new service transition
The information in this panel reflects the currently selected service transition. From here you can change transition details (fields will display a red left border if a value is required and purple text if the field is read-only and cannot be modified).
Service Transition Fields and Options:
Name: this is a name that describes the transition you are configuring and should reflect your internal terminology, e.g. 'Activation', 'Reactivation', 'Suspension', etc.
From Status: this indicates the status the service is changing from. E.g. you can set this field to a 'Suspended' service status and the 'To Status' field to a 'Active' service status to create a 'Un-suspend' or 'Reactivate' transition. The statuses shown in the 'From Status' list are populated with the Service Statuses you have defined, the explanation of what statuses mean in the system can be found in the service status screen help article. The From Status field by default will include a status called [New], meaning 'Newly Created' (essentially [New] is 'from nothing'). New can only be set in the 'From Status' field, once a status is changed from 'New' to another status, the service status can never be switched back to New again
To Status: this value works in conjunction with the 'From Status' field to define a transition. E.g. a From Status value of 'Active' with a To Status value of 'Canceled' would setup one type of 'Cancelation' transition. See the From Status description above for more information
This section displays where the selected service transition is used in the system. By default, the reference data is displayed in a summary format to indicate where the service transition is in use, however the Entity drop down field can be used to view the exact system objects that the service transition is configured on.
