Service Catalog: Change subscription instance name with web services

  • 1.  Service Catalog: Change subscription instance name with web services

    Hi, 

    I have a question about changing the name of a subscription instance in the Service Catalog. 

    This is possible doing from the GUI, and I'd like to know if this is possible with web services.

     

    Thanks, 

    Karolin

    Good Afternoon Karolin.
     
    From within (Tested in SOAPUI) http://WINx64:8083/usm/services/BillingAccountService?wsdl
    Subscriptions can be retrieved through:
    <ser:getSubscribedOfferings soapenv:encodingStyle="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/">
    <sessionID xsi:type="xsd:string">4eb0ff61-05e2-423d-a5a0-5971b9c04a5b</sessionID>
    <accountID xsi:type="xsd:string">10002</accountID>
    </ser:getSubscribedOfferings>
     
    And some data can be edited/changed like e.g. through <ser:editBillingAccount.
    However changing the data as shown on yout screenshot, is not possible, as far as I can see/found.
     
    Perhaps someone else has another(better?) ides or suggestion on this?
     
    Thanks for your understanding and kind regards, Louis.
     
    PS. How/Where do you change this information through the SC-UI? For me to possibly test further on this?

    Good Afternoon Karolin.
     
    I think I found it:
    In accounting/configuration/subscription configuraiton>allow instance names = Yes.
    And then you can have this data available as shown on your screenshot, right?
     
    Thanks and kind regards, Louis.

    Good Afternoon Karolin.
     
    This is me again, Louis. And fuurther checking on this one shows:
    The Query:
    SELECT id,account_no,offering_id,rate_plan_id,item_id,instance_name
    FROM usm_subscription_detail where instance_name <> ' '
     
    And then the Method:
    <ser:getSubscribedOfferings, does not retrieve that column (instance_name) and its value.
     
    You might consider to open an Idea for this?
    To change the method in such a way that it does retrieve that column's data.
    And to build/create a new method (e.g. editSubscribedOfferings) to edit that value there after.
     
    Thanks again and kind regards, Louis.

    Thank you very much for the information. I'll consider posting an idea for this.
