eSeller Cloud change history

02/10/2018 eSellerCloud web, Version 2.0 SB4_Rel, build 307

Besides various changes optimizing performance and stability, eSeller Cloud was updated with the following changes:

  • DE5628: Basket: Merging basket lines for VIKING basket now preserves all basket lines #2018092710000042
  • System stabilization and new logging for debugging #2018092610000099

21/09/2018 eSellerCloud web, Version 2.0 SB4_Rel, build 304

Besides various changes optimizing performance and stability, eSeller Cloud was updated with the following changes:

    New features
  • US16643: Stock level is now attempted updated immediately upon ordering
    What’s different? Previously eSeller Cloud would update stock level every 2 minutes, which meant that adjusting stocklevel would potentially occur up to 2 minutes after the order was placed.
    Rather than updating every 2 minutes, the shop now attempts to adjust stock level immediately after an order has been placed. If for some reason it is not able to (for instance, if it is blocked by an import updating stock level on that account), the shop will add the adjustment transaction to a queue, which will execute every 2 minutes. This reduces the risk of overselling items in fire sales such as Black Friday.
  • Bug fixes
  • DE5386: Merging baskets before/after login now consistently handles all types of items #2018052910000091
    – see the updated documentation here.
  • DE5578: Remembering basket now correctly complies with the shop setting "Remember basket when logged in" #2018091010000083
  • DE5611: VIKING – Basket caching now considers entire pricing context #2018091910000085
  • DE5361: VIKING - Adding to basket from order history using Basket API no longer periodically fails #2018052410000082

31/08/2018 eSellerCloud web, Version 2.0 SB4_Rel, build 301

Besides various changes optimizing performance and stability, eSeller Cloud was updated with the following changes:

    New features
  • US14489 Custom fields: Product custom field "native" value may now hold up to 255 characters. The previous limit was 50 characters.
  • Product custom field filter controls now use doccache for rendering filters. This translates to better response times for product list pages using custom field filters.
  • Bug fixes
  • DE4423 Pricing: Price calculation precision #2017033010000085
    Price calculation now uses 10 decimals when calculating prices, rather than the previous 5 decimals. This results in a higher level of precision.
  • DE5552 ShopAdmin: Product list in shopadmin now allows the user to enter a search query, narrowing the result set, if a timeout occurs #2018082810000042

14/08/2018 eSellerCloud web, Version 2.0 SB4_Rel, build 297

    New features
  • US16108 Google Sitemap: Sitemap index
    The Google sitemap now generates a sitemap index, containing links to sub-sitemaps each containing up to 10.000 URLs. This improves performance of getting the sitemap for shops with a very large number of indexed URLs. See the documentation here.
  • US14504 Google sitemap: Support for hreflang information
    The Google sitemap now contains "alternate" links indicating language and country of the URL. This helps Google Search point uses to the most appropriate version of your page, and it reduces the risk of content being deemed as duplicate. This feature also allows for including URLs from multiple shops on the same account, in case language/country-specifc shops are created. See the documentation here.
  • US15870 B2A: Changing active customer must use default currency if no currency is specified on customer
    The shop now automatically selects the default currency of the shop, if no specific currency is specified for the active customer.
  • US15676 Export wizard: Support for exporting MenuItemID
    The export wizard is now able to export the (internal) product menu ID. This is particularly useful when setting up 301 redirects for shops that migrate from a Classic shop to a Cloud shop or from a Cloud shop to another Cloud shop.
  • DE4030 Gift Card: Gift card log of type "Created" now includes Order ID, so it can easily be identified, which order created a gift card.
  • US14119 Shopadmin: Support for deleting design defined texts
    It is now possible to delete "orphan" texts that have previously been defined in a content design using a <eSeller:Select Text="some_text_key"> tag.
  • US13485 Order: New customer-related runtime values are now available
    These runtime values allow the order confirmation page / order confirmation e-mail to contain customer-related data, which for instance makes it possible to personalize order confirmation e-mails by addressing the customer directly, such as "Dear John Doe..." in the order confirmation e-mail. Moreover, it allows for more flexible styling of the order confirmation page / e-mail. See the new SellTo and DeliveryAddress runtime values here.
  • US13699 Order API: A new order API is now available - check it out here.
    Use the flexible API to freely design order history pages for logged-in customers.
  • Basket API: Support for coupons
    It is now possible to add / view / delete coupons using the Basket API. Check out the new coupon-related methods here.
  • Custom field filters: Performance optimization.
  • Bug fixes
  • DE3876 Gift cards: Improved performance for exporting gift cards using the shopadmin export wizard.
  • DE4044 Import wizard: An error no longer occurs when more columns with the same name exists in the imported file.
  • DE4133 Customer login: The shop now displays an error message when a customer with an inactive country attempts to log in to the shop. The text key of this message is "error_label_country_ is_not_active" and it managed in the CustomerLogin control texts.
  • DE4093 CMS editor: browser related problems #2016122710000031
  • DE2959 PaymentTransactions: Inconsistencies in the export schema for payment transactions have been fixed.
  • DE4896 Coupons: Validity date (time) now uses account time zone rather than UTC. This fixes a problem where setting a coupon validity to a date, the coupon would not be active until 02:00 at that date. Now the coupon is valid from 00:00 at the specified date.

07/06/2018 eSellerCloud web, Version 2.0.1 SB4_Rel, build 31

Besides various changes optimizing performance and stability, eSeller Cloud was updated with the following changes:

    New features
  • The CustomerSelector control has been extended with new attributes; Mode and MaxResultCount. These new attributes facilitate better performance, especially for B2A portals where sales persons have many related customers. We strongly recommend that MaxResultCount is always specified for the control, and that a suitable value is set - e.g. 50. See the updated documentation on the control here.

24/05/2018 eSellerCloud web, Version 2.0 SB4_Rel, build 229 (Search service)

Besides various changes optimizing performance and stability, eSeller Cloud was updated with the following changes:

  • The Smart Search engine has been rewritten, improving search results especially for items with ID fields containing white space. #2017100610000054
  • Improvement of search engine robustness - quick startup logic added for fast recovery on short timed service stops.

13/04/2018 eSellerCloud web, Version 2.0.1 SB4_Rel, build 23

21/03/2018 eSellerCloud web, Version 2.0.1 SB4_Rel, build 20

Besides various changes optimizing performance and stability, eSeller Cloud was updated with the following changes:

    New on docs
  • Basket customer address compliance
  • Default shipment address behavior
  • New features
  • US17330 Basket setting: AddressFollowsCustomer
    A new shop group setting allows basket to ensure that payment/shipment address of a logged-in customer comply with the payment/shipment address information stored on the customer in the shop.
    This is often desirable in situations where customer payment/shipment address information originate from an ERP system and where the customer is not allowed to edit the information during checkout.
    Read more about it here.
  • US17331 ShipmentAddress: Setting for selecting no shipment address
    The ShipmentAddress control now supports a new setting; “AllowNoShipmentAddress” (True/False). The purpose of this setting is to serve as an alternative to using the “ShipmentAddressCheckbox“ control in the design or using the ShipmentAddress “Required” setting.
    The “AllowNoShipmentAddress” setting allows the design to always display the ShipmentAddress input fields and let the customer choose whether specify a shipment address or to use payment address as shipment address by selecting a new “Same as payment address” option in the drop-down selector.
    See the updated documentation here.

04/01/2018 eSellerCloud web, Version 2.0 SB4_Rel, build 218

    New features
  • US16724: ShopMenu control has been completely rewritten and uses DocCache!
    We've extended the implementation of DocCache, so the ShopMenu control rendering product- and info menus now uses the awesome DocCace feature! This results in blazing fast response times and much more flexible caching. This means that updated menus are shown in the shop front almost immediately after being saved - hours will no longer go by until the changes are visible (note: these changes do not currently apply to product menu images).
    Moreover, we've extended the Depth attribute so that it is more flexible - it now supports the values "All" or an integer defining the number of menu levels to display. Previously it only supported the values "All", "1" or "2".
  • JSON ProductList requests with missing/empty mId paramater now also uses DocCache, which translates to lower response times!

27/10/2017 eSellerCloud web, Version 2.0 SB4_Rel, build 184

Besides various changes optimizing performance and stability, eSeller Cloud was updated with the following changes:

    New features
  • Custom field filters now use DocCache

    DocCache that was introduced by the last release is now used by custom field filters. This means that the time it takes to generate the custom field filter controls has been reduced, which should translate to better page speed and will cause less stress on the SQL.

  • Search service now uses change tracking

    The search service now uses change tracking to identify which entities have changed. This results in almost instant indexing - e.g. from a product name is changed till the new name will yield the product as a search result.

    New features
  • Cache optimization - RelatedProducts and Products JSON services

    DocCache

    We've released the first version of the new DocCache feature, which is a much faster and flexible way of caching data. Moreover, we've completely rewritten how data is fetched and served, which results in great performance improvements.

    For this first release, DocCache has been implemented for RelatedProducts and Products JSON services.

    The main focus of the first release has been improving response times for huge related products lists containing bill-of-materials specifications.

    Our measurements show that the average response time for first requests has decreased by 98% - the new DocCache is 58 times faster than before!

    Likewise, the average response time for subsequent requests has decreased by 90% - the new DocCache is 10 times faster than before!

24/03/2017 eSellerCloud web, Version 1.81a SB4_Rel_Ftp, build 1 (FTP)

    New features
  • This FTP update contains comprehensive performance optimization:

    Retry upon timeout

    One of the noticeable new features is improved resilience against import timeouts. Now, when an import fails due to a timeout, the integration will re-try the import up to two times before giving up and failing the import.

    Many times when an import fails due to timeout, it is caused by it colliding with another transaction, e.g. a maintenance job running on the SQL, and by retrying the import just a few minutes later in most cases the import will succeed.

    This means that we experience a lot less import fails due to timeout and that the integration is running a lot more stable.

    Deleting entities from integration

    As mentioned above we’ve rewritten the way the integration handles deletions, which means that now the integration is able to delete large quantities of entities within a few minutes.

    As an example, the new FTP completed a “full integration” file of 756 MB deleting 112.076 custom field values in only 20 min – a task that would have been impossible for the previous FTP to complete without timing out.

    Performance optimization

    After identifying some very specific time consuming processes for large imports, we managed to decrease the time it takes to import files significantly.

    Using a specific shop as a case study (~55.000 products) we saw that the import of the nightly “FullIntegration” file decreased from 30-40 min to 15 min – an improvement of around 50%!

    Moreover, we’ve observed that the file queue length is generally lower than before the update, indicating that imports generally are handled more efficiently.

    These changes entail that the integration is a lot more stable as timeout failures are less likely due to performance optimization and due to the new retry feature.

  • US14609 XML import: Support for deleting delivery addresses
    It is now possible to delete all delivery addresses using FTP XML integration.
  • Bug fixes
  • DE3800 XML import: Omitting EAN number field in import file no longer deletes value for variant
    It is now possible to omit the EAN number field when importing variants.
  • DE4028 XML gift card export: Gift card transactions now display shop group ID from the data origin when getting data as a data origin login
    Previously it displayed the internal shop group ID, which external systems do not know.

06/10/2015

    New on docs
  • A new article has been published on docs: Importing variant products via the FTP XML import.

  • The JSON product list documentation has been updated so that it is easier to see which properties apply to the different services.

  • New features
  • DE2718 Customer and Salesperson identification must be provided to json product list
    - These changes mainly relate to the JSON product service and address an issue where wrong product lists were retrieved when customers/salespersons were logged in.
    The changes require that for shops with login functionality (both customer an/or salesperson), it must be ensured that calls made to the JSON service contain the “customerId” parameter and that this parameter holds a proper authorization token with which the shop is able to establish whether someone is logged in, as well as who is logged in (in order to get correct prices etc.).
    - This authorization token can be retrieved from the new runtime values “AuthToken” and “AuthTokenUrlEncoded” (which is just the URL encoded version of “AuthToken”) - these runtime values are found in the “context” container - find it here.
    Note that backwards compatibility is ensured - this means that if the “customerId” parameter is not specified / empty / 0, the shop will get the product list as if no one is logged in.
    - Example of old call:
    /Services/ProductService.asmx/ProductList?v=1.0&lId=0&so=3&cId=54&langId=1&countryId=11&locId=13& customerId=0&mId=6639&p=1&rp=10&imgSizeId=0
    - Example of new call:
    /Services/ProductService.asmx/ProductList?v=1.0&lId=0&so=3&cId=54&langId=1&countryId=11&locId=13& customerId=r%2fflMYGBFdZ3%2fuMSxYexCG%2fkXFSRKfKQ&mId=6639&p=1&rp=10&imgSizeId=0

  • The JSON product service now supports the parameter “context” which is a value defined by the client and echoed by the server in the JSON result. This parameter can be used to correlate responses with requests - especially useful in situations where batches of requests are made - see the Google JSON style guide.
    Example:
    /Services/ProductService.asmx/ProductList?v=1.0&lId=0&so=3&cId=54&langId=1&countryId=11&locId=13&customerId=r%2fC3U42ykx9OsPNgKmS%2bHExrRqg695qJ&mId=6639&p=1&rp=10&imgSizeId=0&context=frontPageProducts
    yields a result containing the specified “context”:

    { "apiVersion": "1.0", "id": null, "context": "frontPageProducts”, "data": { … } }
  • Bug fixes
  • DE2725 Smart search now respects customer / sales person product scope

  • DE2733 Occationally slow Add-to-basket fixed #2015092510001309

17/09/2015 (FTP)

The update contains various perfomance optimization, stability improvements as well as the following changes:

    New features
  • US10163: Ftp xml import: Possibility to import salesperson/customer relation
    - Support for creating salesperson-customer relations via XML import.
    See the updated schema documentation here.

  • US10435: Ftp xml import - customer element - shopGroup-login sub element behaviour change - New notation for importing customer logins (backwards compatibility has been ensured).

    Why this behaviour change?

    Using the new notation (nesting the <login> elements inside the <logins> element), it is now possible to import customers with existing logins without having to include the customer logins in the import file (with the previous behaviour, omitting the logins would delete them).

    — We encourage all to use the new notation, giving full control over the customer logins —

    Observe the following new behaviour (when the <shopGroup> element is specified):
    - Specifying both <login> (the old notation) and <logins> (the new notation) on same level (sub element to <shopGroup>) will result in an import error - you must use either the new notation or the old notation.
    - No <login> nor <logins> element present (as sub element to <shopGroup>): logins are neither altered nor deleted.
    - One or more "login" element(s) present (as sub element(s) to <shopGroup>): logins are updated - existing logins for the customer not specified in the import file will be deleted (provided they are owned by the data origin).
    - If <logins> is present:
    * No <login> sub elements are present: Any logins on the customer are deleted (provided they are owned by the data origin).
    * One or more <login> sub element(s) are present: Logins are updated - existing logins for the customer not specified in the import file will be deleted (provided they are owned by the data origin).

    See the full updated schema documentation here.

16/09/2015

    New features
  • US11008 Bookmark uniqueness per shop enforcement

  • US11009 Bookmark update capability for info menues

  • US9583 eSeller:Select to support formatting attribute
    - The “format" attribute allows the front-end developer to format the value of any numeric/date-time runtime value so that it is delivered in the specified format.

    Examples:
    <eSeller:Select Value-Of="Product:ExpectedDeliveryDate" format="dd/MM/yy" />, which delivers the expected delivery date of a product in the format dd/MM/yy (e.g. 06/10/15).
    <eSeller:Select Value-Of="Product:Pricing.PreviousTagPrice" format="0.00" />, which delivers the product previous tag price in the format 0.00 (e.g. 233,50).
    You find the updated documentation here.
