CSA - Context Visible/Invisible Options (Option Sets)

I twould be great to have a possibility to manage visibility of the fields using logical expressions. And, it is important, that pricing system (including External Pricing System) would not count money for invisible options.

For example, now we have OS selection, and can choose Windows or Linux OS.
Depending on OS selection, we want to make visible/invisible options or Option Sets, which are
specific for Windows or Linux OS respectively.

Can you please provide an example of how the subscriber option model would look like? Are you referring to a subscriber option model something like below?

For example,

  Here option set1,2,3 and 4 are at the same level.

Option Set 1 ->
        OS Option ->
                Property ( Drop down list for Operating systems ) ->

Option Set2 (Windows) ->
(some options)....

Option Set3 (Linux) ->
(some options)....

Option Set4 (CentOS)->
(some options)....





Yes, your example is right.

And, in addition, imagine that we want to give user a possibility to install additional software. And this software also depends on OS version.

For example, he want MS Office to be installed, but it can be only installed on Windows systems.

Another example is network segment specific options. We want user to always input some security parameters: password, antivirus software version, certificates etc - but ONLY if he choose DMZ/INET network segment.

 And there can be a lot of such conditions for visible/invisible options. And it is getting harder and harder to implement when this conditions are mixed, using existing hierarchical Options Set and Option structure.
