3 New & Noteworthy

3.1 Microsoft SQL Server Support

With ICM 7.10.2 Intershop supports Microsoft SQL Server 2017 as alternative to Oracle Database. All features including Replication are supported by SQL Server. We also support Oracle Database 12c Release 2 now.

3.2 Intershop Progressive Web App

The Intershop Progressive Web App is an essential component of Intershop's new cloud strategy and an alternative storefront for Intershop Commerce Management. Through the clear separation of the Intershop Commerce Suite back-end from the visualization layer and the introduction of clearly defined Synaptic Commerce® APIs, partners and customers can design and customize the Intershop Storefront easier than ever before. Web Developers can use the Intershop PWA to implement storefront applications based on the Intershop Commerce Management (ICM) WebShop REST API and/or 3rd party systems. The Intershop PWA has a four-week release cycle, with new features being added on an ongoing basis.

3.3 Microsoft Dynamics 365 Integration

Intershop is developing Microservices to connect the Intershop Commerce Management 7.10 with Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations. The intention is to enhance the performance of the Dynamics 365 ERP-System by using automated Microservices to ensure data consistency, correctness and fast processing. The Microservice architecture allows a flexible adoption to customer-projects and a fast and agile integration in existing software-landscapes. The connectors for Orders and Inventory are part of the ICM 7.10 GA release. On an ongoing basis further standard connectors for Products, Customers and Prices will be made available for the Intershop Commerce Management 7.10 via a four-week release cycle.

4 Limitations

ICM 7.10.2 does support Microsoft SQL Server, however Azure SQL Database support will be delivered with the next update.

8 Changelog

8.1 Hotfix Release 7.10.26.4

8.2 Patch Release 7.10.26.2

  • Messaging and cache metrics are now available in Prometheus, see Cookbook - Monitoring with Prometheus for details.
  • The searchindexes REST API specifications have been separated from the Backoffice API specification and can be viewed via a drop down menu within the Swagger UI in Intershop System Management.
  • REST API: B2B buyers (admin) can now invite other persons to their customer organization, so they are able to make purchases in this context. 

  • A new promotion condition at order level allows to compare the total quantity of items in the basket with a specific amount in several ways.

  • The Quoting REST API now supports creating a new quote request from an existing quote request.
  • Products REST API: Using the parameter returnSortKeys=true now returns additionally the localized names of the available sorting options. (IS-29415)
  • XML Sitemap Generation is available for the Progressive Web App (PWA) application type (intershop.REST), see Concept - URL Rewriting (from 7.10.5) | Rewrite Rules for PWA.
  • A new promotion condition at order level allows to compare the order total with a specific purchase amount in several ways.
  • MSSQL database optimization: Duplicated indexes are removed. A DBMigrate is required on MSSQL to benefit from the change.
  • MSSQL database bugfix: If an index was deleted, it was possible that the wrong index was deleted. A DBMigrate is required on MSSQL to fix the problem.
  • MSSQL database optimization: Computed FT_INDEX columns are stored as persistence. A DBMigrate is required on MSSQL to benefit from the change.
  • Different REST API versions are now documented correctly and consistently with OpenAPI. This is especially relevant for Basket and Order where two REST API versions are available (see IS-30561 and Reference - WebShop REST API 7.10).
