How to handle multiple reward conditions on custom promotion in Episerver 10



I have a scenario where i need to create a promotion that offers multiple rewards like different percent doscount on different products. For example, the condition will be if you buy ProductA, you can get the following rewards : 10 % off on ProductB, 15% off on ProductC and 25% off on ProductD. And i need to run this under same promotion code. Now, i was able to create a custom promotion that reflects this, but at the Processor end, i'm unable to evaluate all 3 rewards to their respective products. The individual reward description can be calculated, but not combined for final result :

 //custom added code to get all rewards
            RewardDescription reward1;
            RewardDescription reward2;
            RewardDescription reward3;

            if (promotion.Reward1.Discount > 0) // check if reward1 was set
                reward1 = RewardDescription.CreatePercentageReward(status, list, promotion,
                                    promotion.Reward1.Discount, rewardDescriptionText);

            if (promotion.Reward2.Discount > 0) // check if reward2 was set
                reward2 = RewardDescription.CreatePercentageReward(status, list, promotion,
                                    promotion.Reward2.Discount, rewardDescriptionText);
            if (promotion.Reward3.Discount > 0) // check if reward3 was set
                reward3 = RewardDescription.CreatePercentageReward(status, list, promotion,
                                    promotion.Reward3.Discount, rewardDescriptionText);

I can't return all 3 rewards here, asthe Evaluate method only returns one RewardDescription object. Also, the affectedEntries are calculating all reward targets together, instead of one for each type. So in the end when i apply one of the rewards, it ends up applying on all 3 products, instead of just one for which it was meant. How can this situation be handled?

And my custom promotion processor wasn't able to handle the scenario where if I remove the ProductA from cart, all associated discounts on other products go away. They didn't.

Please advice.

We had just another thread asking for this. Unfortunately we didn't come up with an answer, but you can always poke the thread to see if Giedrius came up with a workaround.

Thanks Joel! That link was helpful to some extent. I tried the logic and it works, but not accurately. I need more assisitance. Please respond to my queries on the other thread.
