Product type detailes

Product types have add-ons. An add-on is a template for additional services of a tariff plan. An add-on has an internal name and settings. A resource inherits these settings from the add-on. For more information please refer to the article Tariff plan configuration

Note:

We do not recommend that you edit the internal names of pre-made add-ons.

Use a manual processing module or activation via Shell-scripts for custom add-ons. For more information please refer to the article Integration via ShellScripts.
