    max_unit_price_diff_percent Behavior Changed in v18

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18.01

    In a previous version, we were instructed to set the setenv max_unit_price_diff_percent to 9999 to prevent the error message when adding line items.
    In v18, this is no longer working.
    The system is now only reading the first 3 characters (as 999%) of the environment variable and is applying the 999% upper limit to the order price and presents the "Actual unit price exceeds the estimated unit price by more than 999%". We have many orders which were converted with a default price of .01. This means that any line item added for more than .10 (.01* 9.99) is generating the error.
    Is there a way to configure the system so that this check is not made?

    In order to *not* receive the alert message:

    "Actual unit price ($1 $2) exceeds the estimated unit price ($3 $4) by more than $5 percent. Continue?"

    Please comment out the line
    setenv max_unit_price_diff_percent
    in the file pc_server_defaults, which is located under $alephe_root.
