Get listing of CPQ Groups via SOAP.
The sales hierarchy of who can see what is managed in our Salesforce (SFDC) org using public groups.
With various scenarios such as vacations, turn-over, promotions, large geographically distributed customer structures, etc. it is desirable to have an automated method for keeping the groups in SFDC and Oracle Cloud CPQ (CPQ) in synch.
The way access to quotes is managed in CPQ presents challenges in the way the steps are used to 'stamp' or 'brand' a particular quote with the details of who has rights.
As a result the use of groups to facilitate this functionality highly desirable.
The Web Service SOAP API's provide nearly all the necessary access to accomplish the desired integration with the exception of the CPQ Web Services lack of a method to get a listing of currently available groups from the CPQ.
