Applying Office 365 Updates

The products that a Country tenant can offer are the products that are included in the price list assigned from the root environment. The changes on the product catalog (prices update, addition of new products etc.) are propagated to a Country tenant BSS with the following process.

Update Country Tenant

First a price-list must be created on the root environment that includes all products. The products must be directly attached to the price-list and not through price groups.

From the root, a user can control when the changes in the product catalog will be propagated to a Country tenant , by running the Update Tenant Country tenant's action that is available in price-list details page:

  1. Locate the Country tenant price-list
  2. Open the price-list details page
  3. Select Products tab
  4. Select the action Update Tenant Country tenant's and in the pop-up select which Country tenant'ss you want to update
