How can I setup a Pricing Policy? How can I assign discounts/different prices for certain users or groups?

When enabling public charging through the session activation method you can set a Pricing Policy for a charging station(s). A pricing policy must be set on a charging station and that determines the price for both Scan & Charge and Swipe & Charge.

Next to that, there is also a card "Pricing Policies" available where you'll see all created policies and the charging station(s) linked to it. From here you can also create a new Pricing Policy.
