The Change plan case enables CSRs to change a customer's current plan. CSRs can quickly compare the details and prices of the new plan with the current plan, manage add-ons, and help customers switch to the new plan immediately. The Change plan case is fully integrated with the Pega Product Catalog for Communications to store and manage product information.
To configure this case to retrieve the required data, modify the data pages that the case references. The D_ GetServiceList data page serves as an extension point for the configuration. For more information, see Data pages overview. To populate data from an external data source, replace the data source of the data page. For more information about changing data sources, see Changing the data source of a data page.
