Bug fixes

  • COM-17701 – Fixed an issue where overwriting MediaData while importing with ServiceApi created a version instead of overwriting in place (ForceCurrentVersion).

January 23, 2024

EPiServer.Commerce 14.16.0

Enhancements

  • Added multisite support for the ODP export job in Commerce 13.

    Configuration example:

      <add key="episerver:odp.EndpointUrl.Alias1" value=" USEndpoint"/>
      <add key="episerver:odp.AccessKey.Alias1" value=" USAccountKey"/>
    <add key="episerver:odp.Catalogs.Alias1" value="Catalog1;Catalog2"/>
    <add key="episerver:odp.MarketIds.Alias1" value="USEast; USWest " /> <add key="episerver:odp.EndpointUrl.Alias2" value=" EUEndpoint"/>
    <add key="episerver:odp.AccessKey.Alias2" value=" EUAccountKey"/>
    ...

    The Alias1 and Alias2 segments only group settings and can be any string. The example above exports catalog, customer, and order data to USAccountKey account available at the USEndpoint endpoint. Commerce only exports data from Catalog1 and Catalog2 and data associated with the USEast or USWest markets. A second export runs the EUAccountKey account with some other Catalog or Market filter that the example does not reveal.

Bug fixes

  • COM-17155 – Extended OrderReportData.CustomerName database column from 64 to 255 characters.
  • COM-17459 – Fixed an issue where if a CatalogContent item is published in one language, editing the draft version of a different, never published, language also published that language.
