Product To Version



As configurable line item positioning has been available previously, a respective preference already exists in the database. To stay consistent with the current, non-configurable line item positioning behavior where no position adjustment is made after a line item is removed from the basket, a migration routine was introduced.


  • To prevent breaking the current behavior, where line item positions are not adjusted if a line item is removed from the basket, a migration routine was added, changing the default preference value from "AssignAndReassign" to "AssignOnly".

  • Position handling preference values that were set for an application will not be touched by the migration routine.

  • The migration script does the following: UPDATE "PREFERENCEDEFINITION" SET "DEFAULTVALUE" = 'AssignOnly' WHERE "PREFERENCENAME" = 'BasketLineItemPositionHandling';

  • Preference value "AssignOnly" on database/PreferenceDefinitions level is equivalent to "Keep Positions" in the back office; same goes for "AssignAndReassign" and "Adjust Positions" (preference name is "BasketLineItemPositionHandling").
