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.

7 Migration Guides

Intershop provides Migration Guidelines to ease the migration from 7.9 to 7.10:

Also see Overview - Migration Best Practice.

For migrations within 7.10 versions refer to the following documents:


8 Changelog

8.1 Patch Release 7.10.37.1

  • The following changes were made to the web adapter. For details see Guide - 7.10 API Changes:
    • Removed and adjusted default connection time and retry properties for web adapter.
    • The web adapter now returns HTTP 503 instead of HTTP 500 to the client if no configuration service is available.
    • The class 'ApiTokenCookieLogin' has a new default method 'removeToken()'. 
  • An issue in the SMTP service has been fixed that was based on the encryption/decryption logic in the managed service configuration. The "@" character in e-mails is now interpreted correctly so that e-mails are sent successfully.

8.2 Hotfix Release 7.10.36.1

  • An issue in the SMTP service has been fixed that was based on the encryption/decryption logic in the managed service configuration. The "@" character in e-mails is now interpreted correctly so that e-mails are sent successfully.

8.3 Patch Release 7.10.36.0

  • A new configurable option has been implemented in the order export section in the back office that allows for deactivation of the order status setting during order export or order submission service. Before this option, the order export service changed the order status into "export failed" in case of unsuccessful order exports. The new functionality gives e-Commerce Managers the possibility to prevent any order state updates in case of exporting orders to the BI Data Hub, a scenario which should generally not influence the order status within the ICM (69724). See Online Help | Order Export and Import | Enabling/Disabling Status Updates for Order Exports.
  • A new version of the Requisition Approval REST API is available, see Reference - Requisition Approval API 1.1.0.
    This update includes extended data for the requisitions, see Guide - 7.10 REST API Changes for details.
  • A new version of the Quoting REST API is available, see Reference - Quoting API 1.1.0.
    This update includes support for retail sets in quotes.
  • A new version of the Customer REST API is available, see Reference - Customer API 1.1.0.
    For this update, the Cost Center API was split off and moved into its own specification, see Reference - Cost Center API 1.0.0.
  • The /configurations REST Call is now cached, see Reference - Shop API 1.1.0 and Cookbook - Configuration REST API (v1).
  • TrackingEventOrderCreationHandler (Handler which fires a tracking event when the order has been placed) moved from OrderCreationChain/PostPaymentOrderCreationChain to OrderCreationChain/PendingPaymentOrderCreationChain.
    Now, the OrderPlacedEvent will be tracked also in case of using payment methods with redirection.

8.4 Hotfix Release 7.10.35.2

  • An issue in the SMTP service has been fixed that was based on the encryption/decryption logic in the managed service configuration. The "@" character in e-mails is now interpreted correctly so that e-mails are sent successfully.

8.5 Patch Release 7.10.35.1

  • The DBinit preparers have been improved. Previously, in a list of preparer steps, the execution stopped at the first gap in the numbering (e.g., a disabled step) while subsequent steps were not executed. Now all non-disabled steps are executed as the complete list is iterated. This applies to all preparers in ICM.
    See Concept - DBMigrate and DBInit Properties File Formats for further information.
  • The following cXML-related changes require a DBMigrate/DBPrepare, see Concept - DBPrepare:
    • With a new global setting B2B shop managers are now able to define the locale to be used for transferred cXML Punchout baskets (64032).
    • In addition, two new attributes for cXML users have been introduced which allow for user-specific adjustments. These are:
      • cXML user-specific locale for transferred Punchout baskets (65537), and 
      • cXML user-specific unit of measurement mapping (65529).
    • The customer import has been extended to import these attributes (65539, 65533). So now each cXML user can have an individual locale being used for the data in the transferred Punchout basket, and an individual unit of measure mapping in order to support multiple procurement systems.
  • Storefront: The main navigation subcategories depth can now be controlled via the CMS in Intershop Commerce Management, see Cookbook - Storefront Navigation.
  • A new version of the Product & Category API is available, see Reference - Product and Category API 1.3.0.
    This includes a change in the FilterCollectionRO: In case no search index is found, error code 503 is returned, instead of a "500 server error". 
  • A new version of the Promotion REST API is available, see Reference - Promotion API 1.2.0.
    This update includes improved caching for the resource /promotions/<promotion-id>, see Guide - 7.10 REST API Changes.
  • The following jobs are now enabled by default in order to keep the system clean and fast:

8.6 Hotfix Release 7.10.34.3

  • An issue in the SMTP service has been fixed that was based on the encryption/decryption logic in the managed service configuration. The "@" character in e-mails is now interpreted correctly so that e-mails are sent successfully.

8.7 Patch Release 7.10.34.2

  • A new global configuration has been implemented in the cXML Punchout for mapping the unit of measure codes defined for procurement systems to the units used in the online shop, see 64031.
  • A DocType was added to cXML Punchout responses in order to work with a larger amount of connectable procurement systems, see 62740.
  • The error handling has been improved in the staging area. In case of inconsistent domain data on the editing and live system (e.g. catalog domains were created directly on the live system), replications will fail in order to prevent broken data in the database. With the new implementation you are being informed via the error log that data cleanup in the production system (live) is required before the replication can be executed successfully again. This allows you to clear the reason for the replication failure independently. Previously technical support was required to get a failed replication being executed successfully again (63776).
    • The regular use case of, e.g., deleting a catalog on edit and then replicating this to live is not affected by this mechanism and, thus, does not require any data cleanup in the live system before a staging.
  • The promotion API was updated. When retrieving a list of promotions (product-specific or general) it is now possible to decide whether code-based promotions should be included or not. To determine this option, the new query parameter 'includeCodePromotions' has been introduced (64065), see Reference - Promotion API 1.1.0. In previous versions code-based promotions where automatically excluded from the lists.

  • The Punchout API was updated. The descriptions for 'OCI background search' and the texts for cXML Punchout have been improved, see Reference - Punchout API 2.2.0.

8.8 Patch Release 7.10.33.1

  • DBInit and DBMigrate now use DBPrepare.
    Therefore, DBPrepare is required to register all previous preparers if you have used DBInit/DBMirate before 7.10.33, 
    see Guide - 7.10 API Changes and Concept - DBPrepare for details.
  • Buying Context was introduced for Basket and Order, see also Concept - Buying Context.
    This allows to have a more fine-grained structuring of a business customer and its users.

8.9 Patch Release 7.10.32.0 (LTS Release)

Info

For information on subsequent LTS hotfix releases, please refer to Public Release Note - Intershop Commerce Management B2C/B2X 7.10 LTS.
  • ICM 7.10.32.0 requires a DBMigrate/DBPrepare for the following changes, see Concept - DBPrepare:
  • A new job was added that allows to remove old and outdated batch processes from time to time, see Job - CleanupBatchProcesses.
  • Deprecated code, mainly methods related to content management, was removed. For details, see Guide - 7.10.32.0 Removal of Deprecated Code of bc_pmc.
  • The Contact Us e-mail was improved. For details, see Guide - 7.10.32.0 Contact Us E-Mail.
  • Optimization of the Responsive Starter Store for Core Web Vitals metrics, this includes:
    • Elimination of render blocking resources
    • Removal of unused Javascript
    • Preloading of key requests
    • Optimized images
  • The number of cached cursors has been increased to improve request processing throughput.
    The default values for cached database cursors and numbers of shared read connections have been increased as follows (IS-32694 - Increase default cached cursors and read connections for JDBCSharedReadConnectionPool ):

    Topical numbers of cached cursers and shared read connections
    intershop.cartridges.core.jdbc.maxCachedCursors=100
    intershop.cartridges.core.jdbc.numberOfSharedReadConnections=20

    Important

    Increasing the number of cached cursors also increases the number of open cursors being held by the application. Customers may need to adjust their instance configuration accordingly.

8.10 Patch Release 7.10.31.2

  • ICM 7.10.31.2 requires a DBMigrate/DBPrepare for various changes, see Concept - DBPrepare :
    • New database views (V_PRODUCTSHARING, V_PRODUCT) were added. They allow for easier querying on product data and are the base for current and future search improvements. This will not change anything in the behavior of the product back office search. The DBMigrate is mandatory, however.

    • A bug related to GetSharingSourceDomainsByCatalogInclude.query in MS SQL was fixed .
  • The Subscription feature (Recurring Order) is now deactivated per default. Existing installations are not affected unless a full DBInit is executed. The feature can be easily reactivated. See Cookbook - Subscriptions | Recipe: Enable/Disable the Subscriptions Feature (Toggle).
  • Tomcat was updated to Tomcat 9:
  • The cXML order request interface has been implemented in a way that allows projects to easily adjust standard functionality according to the project needs. See Concept - cXML Order Injection for further details.

  • Image management via Cloudinary CDN is now available, see Overview - Cloudinary Image Server.

8.11 Patch Release 7.10.30.2

  • Tool for product import performance improvements: Tests have shown that large product imports can be accelerated when the XML indexes on the database are dropped before the import and recreated afterwards. This is faster than the incremental update which is regularly done during the import. Two pipelets are provided for the drop and create operations:
    • com.intershop.component.product.pipelet.CreateProductXMLIndex 
    • com.intershop.component.product.pipelet.DropProductXMLIndex 
      These pipelets are not used by default. Add the pipelets to your import job chain or change the default import pipeline and use them there, also see IS-32082 - Pipelet that removes and recreates DB XML Indexes For further details, see Cookbook - Product Import Performance.

  • Additional fine-grained roles are available in the user management in the Intershop Organization Management (Operations ), see  Organization Management Online Help | Managing Administration User Access Privileges .
  • A bug related to the DBmigrate execution from STAGING$get_live_tables was fixed for MSSQL, see IS-32632 - Database migration cannot perform alter on 'STAGING$get_live_tables'
    This requires a DBMigrate/DBPrepare, see Concept - DBPrepare .
  • The replication of recycle bin domains by product replication was removed. This requires a DBMigrate/DBPrepare and further steps, see migration guide: Guide - 7.10.30.0 Recycle Bin Removed from Product Replication.
  • The REST ObjectMapper is now replaceable via Guice binding.
  • REST API Changes: 

8.12 Patch Release 7.10.29.2

  • Fine-grained roles for system administration users in Intershop Organization Management (Operations), see Organization Management Online Help | Managing Administration User Access Privileges.
    This requires a DBMigrate/DBPrepare, see Concept - DBPrepare.
  • SQL Script Preparer uses UTF-8 character set for scripts, so special characters for foreign languages can be added, see Guide - 7.10 API Changes.
  • Product import performance was improved. The property intershop.import.bulker.orm.importedToExistingProductsRatio is taken into account when using cache clearing. This means that expensive operations are only executed when necessary. See Concept - Impex Framework.
  • cXML Punchout support is now available. However, the user has to be created manually in the database, see Reference - Punchout API 2.0.0.
    This requires a DBMigrate/DBPrepare, see Concept - DBPrepare .
  • Extension point for creating custom imports: ExtensionPoint ProcessCatalogImport-ValidateCategories now allows SourceFile as input parameter.

8.13 Patch Release 7.10.28.0

  • The Punchout REST API now supports the OCI functions 'VALIDATE' and 'BACKGROUND_SEARCH'. 
  • The Customer REST API can be now adapted to transmit more attributes, see Cookbook - Customer REST API | Recipe: Add new Attributes to PrivateCustomerRO (for example with Custom Attributes) and following recipes. 
  • Search index configuration: There is now a validation for trailing commas and spaces when importing CSV files containing synonyms.
  • A bug related to the length of  searchandizing target URLs was fixed. Previously, the URL was truncated after 256 characters. The length has now been increased so that up to 4000 characters can be used. A DBMigrate is required to use this feature. 
    Not executing DBMigrate has no further consequences - the searchandizing URLs can still be used with 256 characters.

8.14 Patch Release 7.10.27.0

  • New job and process chains for search index and product assignment maintenance, see Guide - 7.10.27.0 New Job and ProcessChains for Search Index Maintenance . This requires a DBMigrate.

  • Open API specifications are now available on production systems, accessible via Intershop System Management, see Cookbook - Developer Tools ac_swagger | Recipe: Show API Documentation for details. 
  • Introduction of configurable CORS filters. For each application a list of allowedOrigins can be configured.
  • Added Apache HTTPD support for mod_status and HTTP2, see  Guide - 7.10 Build and Deployment.
  • A new configuration for Single Sign-On (SSO) prevents the automatic registration of users and modification of user data. Project-specific customizations can thus connect external systems and are thus responsible for the stored data.
  • REST API Changes:
    • CMS: The CMS REST API that was completed with 7.10.21.0 is no longer BETA. 
    • Punchout API: A new REST operation that allows to  transfer the Punchout basket back to the procurement system was added. 
    • Product & Category API:
      • A new REST endpoint attachments was implemented. It allows to download product attachments. Usually this endpoint is not called directly, instead the product API provides links to the documents which can then be downloaded.
      • A bug in the products endpoint was fixed: The inStock attribute now (correctly) returns data from the inventory service, see Guide - 7.10 REST API Changes for details.
    • Promotion: Improved caching  for resource /promotions , see Guide - 7.10 REST API Changes

8.15 Patch Release 7.10.26.2 (LTS Release)

Based on your feedback and in order to support the planning of updates, upgrades and enhancements, Intershop Commerce Management 7.10 includes long-term support (LTS) releases from ICM Patch Version 7.10.26. For more information, refer to Concept - Continuous Releases.

  • 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 - It is not possible to properly reflect different API versions. and Reference - Intershop Commerce Management 7.10 REST API).

8.16 Patch Release 7.10.24.1

  • A new promotion condition at line item level allows to create promotions for specific product(s) based on a product attribute, see Discount Rules in the Intershop Commerce Management online help. 
  • A new promotion functionality allows to stop all other promotions after a promotion is successfully applied.
  • Single Sign-On is now available for inTRONICS (Azure AD B2C)
  • The behavior of the page cache invalidation can now be configured, see Cookbook - Page Cache.
  • The search index list now shows a warning when rebuilding a search index is a risk, e.g. when product or catalog import is running.

8.17 Patch Release 7.10.23.0

  • REST API Changes:
    • The Product & Category REST API now allows filtering by variation master SKU.
    • The following REST API specifications have been separated from the Storefront API specification and can be viewed via a drop down menu within the Swagger UI in Intershop System Management for each site:
      • Basket
      • Customer
      • Order
      • Organization
      • Recommendation
      • Wishlist
  • Single Sign-On:

8.18 Patch Release 7.10.22.1

  • New job to recalculate the sales target actual amount for all contracts, see Job - Recalculate the Sales Target Actual Amount for all Contracts.
    This requires a DBMigrate.
  • New role descriptions for B2B roles. For migration information refer to Guide - 7.10 API Changes.
  • JDBC Oracle driver update, see  Guide - 7.10 API Changes and Support Article - Handling the New Dependency of 3rd_oracle Version 19.3.1.0  for details.
  • REST API Changes:
    • New REST API operations for handling order approval in buying organizations based on personal budgets or order size limits. This includes:

      • New REST interfaces to provide lists of approval tasks and their details for specific approvers,
      • New REST interfaces to provide lists of requisitions (one time or subscription) and their details for specific buyers,
      • New REST interfaces to perform approvals (accept or reject)
        Handling cost centers is not yet included.
    • The following REST API specifications have been separated from the Storefront API specification and can be viewed via a drop down menu within the Swagger UI in Intershop System Management for each site:
      • Authentication
      • Newsletter Subscription (E-Mail Marketing)
      • Promotion
      • Rating & Review
      • Subscription (Recurring Order)
      • Shop
    • Endpoints of the former Localization API are now part of the Shop API
    • Variation products assigned to one variation master can be retrieved via REST API with /products?MasterSKU=<Master SKU>. The corresponding variation attributes (→ /productfilters?MasterSKU=<Master SKU>) can be used to filter the result set. This allows to create variation master pages in PWAs more efficiently than before. In order to do this, MasterSKU must be indexed in the search index, similar to MasterUUID. This is needed so MasterSKU can be used in the REST API. (The REST API only handles skus, not UUIDs.)
    • Variation products on variation master pages, as well as in the REST API (/products?MasterSKU=<sku>) can now be sorted as defined in the backoffice, if no other sorting is specified. This requires configuration of the search index. See Guide - 7.10 REST API Changes.

  • Changes in Single Sign-On (SSO):

8.19 Patch Release 7.10.21.0

  • The CMS REST API is complete with version 7.10.21. The beta flag will remain for another ~ 6 months. This time will be used to get feedback from projects and make adjustments where necessary. The CMS REST API allows to get all relevant information about web content from Intershop Commerce Management in order to render it in a progressive web app or any other client.
  • Extended back office contract start date and end date validation:

    • Contract creation: start date and end date must be in the future.

    • Edit contract: contracts in the future are changeable. If a contract is already started, the end date can only be changed for contracts that are still running. Contracts in the past cannot be changed.

  • Azure AD B2B can now be configured for Single-Sign-On, see Recipe: Configure Azure AD (B2B) in Cookbook - Single Sign-on (SSO). Also refer to Guide - 7.10 API Changes for API changes.
  • Security updates of libraries, see Guide - 7.10.21.0 Security Update of Libraries.
  • The attribute supplierSKU was added to the response of /products/<productID>.

8.20 Patch Release 7.10.20.1

  • The configuration property intershop.import.bulker.orm.importedToExistingProductsRatio for updating/building the search indexes after a product import allows to switch off the index build by setting the ratio to a negative value. In addition the property can be configured domain-specific.
  • The Notifications API specification has been separated from the Storefront API specification and can be viewed via a drop down menu within the Swagger UI in Intershop System Management for each site.
  • Configurations API (Beta): The response data structure was changed from a list to a map representation, see Guide - 7.10 REST API Changes for details. 

8.21 Patch Release 7.10.19.3

  • For MSSQL, an error was fixed that caused the stored procedure sp_deleteUserDataByDomain to run forever if there is data that needs to be deleted in the tables BASICPROFILE/BASICADDRESS related to the deleted DOMAINIDs.
    This requires a DBMigrate.

8.22 Patch Release 7.10.19.2

  • New Single Sign-on (SSO) feature for the Organization Management (Operations) Backoffice, see Guide - 7.10.19.0 SSO for Enterprise Backoffice with Keycloak.

  • Extensions of the B2B customer storefront REST API for budget and role management: 
    • When creating a user for an organization, it is possible to define roles for this user.
    • When viewing a list of users of an organization, it is now possible to see approval related data.
    • When updating a user, it is now possible to provide approval related budget data.
  • The API specification for "CMS", "Search" and "Product & Catalog" have been separated from the Storefront API specification and can be viewed via a drop down menu within the Swagger UI in Intershop System Management for each site.
  • Introduction of a new Cache API, see Guide - 7.10.19.0 New Cache API - Configuration and Metrics

8.23 Patch Release 7.10.18.1

  • New Single Sign-on (SSO) feature for SMC. This requires a DBMigrate. For details see:
  • A new optional query parameter extended has been added to the /products/{id} and /products/{id}/variations resources, which will provide more complete information about variation attributes and their values in the new field variationAttributeValuesExtended.
  • The category REST resource now supports a category reference as a category id. The category reference is included in CategoryRO as categoryRef.
  • The Localization API specification has been separated from the Storefront API specification and can be viewed via a drop down menu within the Swagger UI in Intershop System Management for each site.
  • The CMS REST API now allows to retrieve pages in hierarchical structure by calling /cms/pagetree. The depth can be limited for larger trees. Also a node from a lower level can be passed to retrieve only a specific sub-tree.

8.24 Patch Release 7.10.17.0

  • A new Configuration REST API for Commerce Management channel, application and service settings has been introduced. Fore more details see

  • A new REST API to delete all items in basket has been introduced.
  • A new optional query parameter omitHasOnlineProducts has been added to the /categories resource. If set to true, the field hasOnlineProducts will not be resolved for:

    • All categories in the category list resource
    • Subcategories in the category item resource
  • The new field effectiveUrl has been added to attachments under the products resource.

For the latest REST API documentation refer to: 

8.25 Patch Release 7.10.16.6

It allows to handle retail sets differently in lists (e.g. show a price range, instead of a price), without calling /products/<productID> first.
  • New REST resource for handling ViewContext objects
  • New ReCaptcha v3 has been introduced. For more details see:

8.27 Patch Release 7.10.14.0
