Journey Management - MSISDN

Note: Spartacus 4.x is no longer maintained. Please upgrade to the latest version.

Note: Spartacus 4.x was tested with SAP Commerce Cloud versions 1905 to 2205. Spartacus 4.x has not been verified to work with (and is not guaranteed to work with) SAP Commerce Cloud 2211 or later releases.

Note: This feature is introduced with version 1.2 of the TUA Spartacus libraries.

As a result of Journey Management configuration, some product offerings may be defined with the requirement of an MSISDN selection. This means that the MSISDN or Mobile Number must be selected (reserved) by the customer before the order can be successfully placed. The Journey Management - MSISDN feature enables customers to make this selection during the “Add to Cart” process. The retrieval of MSISDN numbers for selection and reservation requires a third-party integration.

Note: This feature applies to product offerings that have a checklist policy for MSISDN Reference configured. For more information, see Configuring and Enabling MSISDN in TUA.

To test this feature using a mockup service, follow the instructions to set-up soapUI. Ensure that the MSISDN system is always up and running.

Note: The mockup service is not recommended for the production environments as it is intended only for demonstration purpose.

  1. Download soapUI, version 5.6.0 as per your installed Operating System.
  2. Navigate to the TUA Spartacus git repository and download the file.
  3. Extract the file. The content of the ZIP when extracted is the Resource_Pool_Management_API.xml file.
  4. Click the Import icon on the soapUI toolbar. The Select soapUI Project file dialog box opens. Import the Resource_Pool_Management_API.xml file into the soapUI.
  5. Right-click MSISDN and then click Start Minimized. When the mock service is up, you can see that the MSISDN mock service is also up and running.

Business Use Case

A customer wants to purchase a product offering that requires an MSISDN selection. During the “Add to Cart” process, the customer is prompted to Select your desired Phone Number. The customer makes a selection and the product offering is added to the cart, along with the MSISDN number selection. Customers also have the ability to change the selected MSISDN number to a new selection in the cart before placing the order.
