Version 2.1.37

NEW

Released on: Jul 18, 2024

2.1.37

SCAYLE Panel

It is now possible to replicate Shop Categories from one environment to another. You can find the Feature enhancement under Settings > Data Replication.

We implemented a new System Report with which you can retrieve all information relating to redirects set up in your application. The report is accessible for user that have the permission shop__redirects__show and shop__redirects__list assigned to them.

Redirects can now also be maintained via the AdminAPI. We provided new AdminAPI endpoints to (bulk) create, (bulk) update, (bulk) delete and get redirects. You can find more detailed information in our Developer Guide Documentation.

Admin API

  • We added several endpoints to Admin API to help you maintain redirects stored for one or multiple specific applications. With these endpoints, you can list redirects, and create, update, and delete a single redirect, or multiple ones in bulk. These endpoints are:
    • GET /shops/{shopKey}/redirects
    • POST /shops/{shopKey}/redirects
    • PUT /shops/{shopKey}/redirects/{redirectId}
    • DELETE /shops/{shopKey}/redirects/{redirectId}
    • PUT /shops/{shopKey}/redirects/bulk
    • DEL /shops/{shopKey}/redirects/bulk
  • We also implemented the expectedAvailabilityAt feature on composite variants, so that composite variants can show their expected availability date when retrieving their stock information.

Version 2.1.36

Released on: Jul 04, 2024

SCAYLE Panel

Price Rounding

We've introduced the Price Rounding feature. This gives users the possibility to set a rule on how prices should be rounded up or down if an item is a part of any campaign or sale.

For more information, see our User Guide.

New Analytics Page

Under Shops > Analytics > Shop Health customers can now find the Shop Health analytics page. This page provides Storefront uptime information for each shop country on a global level. It also shows on a country level a log of uptime details throughout the past 30 days. Users will need the shop_analytics_shop-health__show permission in order to access this page.

For more information, see our User Guide.

Storefront Core

Live Preview Support for Storyblok and Contentful

We have integrated proper live preview support for both Storyblok and Contentful. This changes means users can now edit CMS content elements within their respective CMS provider web interfaces and see the changes immediately in the context of the Storefront application.

Explicit Imports for Vue Components

To better align with the JavaScript and TypeScript developer ecosystem, Storefront Boilerplate is gradually moving away from relying on the Nuxt "auto import" feature. Starting with the upcoming v1.2 release, we will disable the imports.autoImport option in nuxt.config.ts.

As a first step, we have added explicit imports to all Vue components. Note that defineProps, defineEmits, and withDefaults are Vue compiler macros and do not need to be imported explicitly; doing so will trigger a compiler warning.

For more details on our latest release, see the Changelogs section in our Storefront.

Checkout

Delivery Carrier Contact Consent

We have introduced a new feature that allows users to provide consent for being contacted by delivery carriers through a dynamic field on the front-end.

Note that the consent is not persistent. Users will need to accept this consent each time they re-enter the shop. To learn how to configure this feature, see our Developer Guide.

New default for Hong Kong

We've introduced default configurations for Hong Kong. Previously, the lack of a default for this market resulted in an endless loading of the Checkout front-end. With this update, users in Hong Kong will experience a seamless and efficient setup process.

Multiple Attribute Groups in search queries will now be considered in /v2/suggestions and /v2/resolve

  • When a user enters a search query that can be separated into a category and different attribute groups, /v2/resolve and v2/suggestions endpoints now consider all attribute groups in the query.

SCAYLE Panel

  • It is now possible to perform up to 4 product list bulk updates to any set of products at the same time (attribute, master category, status updates). This way product enhancement processes can be improved and performed more efficiently. Since we are still working on adjusting the downloadable CSV file accordingly to display the preview of all bulk operations selected, we disabled the option to download the CSV file temporarily. It will be reintroduced end of February.
  • We also fixed a small bug that linked the selectability of attribute groups for Default Filters to their translatability. It is now possible to select all simple attribute groups as default filters - regardless of whether they are translatable or not.

Version 2.1.23

Released on: Jan 02, 2024

2.1.23

SCAYLE Panel

  • We simplified the handling of the product name field on the new shop structure: until now, two fields for the product name were displayed on the Product Detail Page (PDP): one in the master section and the AG 553 (Produktname) in the product section of the PDP.
  • From now on only AG 553 (Produktname) will be displayed in the product section of the PDP and can be maintained for both, the default-locale PDP and non-default-locale PDPs. The AG 553 will be always visible and editable on every PDP, regardless of whether or not it is assigned to a master category
  • Due to this change we disabled the "Product Name" import on the new shop structure since it used to update the old product name and is now obsolete.
  • Promotion Engine has been extended with a new type called Tiered Promotions. With this feature, discount levels are displayed to the customer when adding a product to the shopping cart, so that the customer can see how many products need to be added to receive a higher discount.

Admin API

  • We implemented endpoints for the configuration of price rounding rules.
  • We extended Get Customer and Get Customer Addresses endpoints with the nonUniqueAddresses filter which enables you to retrieve also non-unique customer addresses.
  • In the response of Get Attribute Groups endpoint, we now return the structure property for all attribute group types that support advanced attribute structure.
  • We extended the response of Shop Category endpoints with the leftSiblingId property.

  • We added a new getExternalIdpRedirect RPC which returns you the redirect urls for your configured IDPs.
  • We added a new handleIDPLoginCallback RPC to exchange the temporary IDP code for correct authentication tokens.

Adjustment of default cache durations

Previously the caching time for product RPCs was one hour which could easily lead to outdated product information for a long time.

The getProductById and getProductsByIds RPCs are now cached for 5 Minutes and getProductsByCategory is now cached for 15 Minutes.

Storefront API

Improved Search with New Suggestions Endpoint

A new suggestions endpoint /v2/search/suggestions will return category suggestions as the user types in the search.

As part of our initiative to enhance the Promotion Engine, we added new fields to the "Buy X get Y" promotion template.

  • You can now define the maximum amount of free items that will be passed as an int64 in the EligibleItemsQuantity field.
  • Additionally, you can define how the maximum amount is calculated through the optional buy_x_get_y-max_count_type field by choosing the per_eligible_items_quantity or per_eligible_uniq_items string.
    • If per_eligible_uniq_items is sent, only unique items will be considered to calculate the maximum amount of free items.
    • per_eligible_items_quantity means that calculating the maximum amount of free items is based on the number of items in the basket that fit the condition.

New "Tiers" Promotion Type

As another enhancement for the Promotion Engine, promotion tiers are now supported. The tiers field is now exposed on the promotion object with its fields.

Added "forceSlug" Parameter to Improve Brands Endpoint

  • Voucher-related endpoints are now extended with a new property isApplicableToPromotions.
  • We added a new filter isComposite to the GetProducts endpoint. When set to true, only Composite products are returned. When set to false, only Non-Composite products are returned.

Storefront API

Enhanced Displayment of Relative Promotions

As part of our initiative to enhance the Promotion Engine further, relative promotions in Storefront API are no longer displayed by a magnitude of 100. As an example, a 20% promotion previously was displayed as 2000. Storefront API promotions endpoint now displays relative promotions in a way that is easier to understand and read. Adapted API change:

  • Response schema type is changed from integer to float.
  • A relative promotion of 20.34% is now displayed as 20.34.

Products?filters[term] Search Endpoint now Supports Stemming

To improve our existing search implementation further, stemming is now implemented for the products?filters[term] endpoint for all supported languages. Stemming is a process that reduces words to their root form, allowing different words from the same word family to be matched and leading to better search results. As an example, user searching for "knit sweater" should receive the same response as a user searching for "knitted sweater", as "knitted" would be shortened to "knit".

Checkout

  • Consolidated loading states between Authentication, Shipping and Payment.

  • Update Gitcard error messages when Gitcard is not found.
  • Improved support of basket for tiered promotions.

Version 2.1.21

Released on: Dec 07, 2023

2.1.21

SCAYLE Panel

Improvements The Product Detail Page can now handle Products that have a huge variety of variants. We worked on a solution to load the PDP in these cases properly and display even a huge amount of variants set up for a product

New Features

  • Promotion Engine allows user to create customized discounts with setting conditions to decide wether the discount is valid and applied to basket or order items.
  • The Feature Audiences provide a complete list of exististing Audiences and new Audiences can be created to be used in Promotion Engine as a condition.

Admin API

  • We implemented support for the automatic on-the-fly creation of simple attributes when creating / updating advanced attributes that include simple attributes. From now on, you do not have to add simple attributes upfront, when they should be part of an advanced attribute.
  • We improved error handling for requests containing unexpected locales.

Storefront Core

Official support for Vercel as a deployment option

A Storefront Boilerplate-based Storefront application can now also be deployed to Vercel Edge Runtime.

See more information in our Storefront Boilerplate documentation.

Support of cache compression for Storefront Boilerplate (Nuxt 3)

We now support the compression of cache data with the new "Unified Storefront Core Cache Handling". To enable cache compression, the new compression option can be used for storefront.storage.cache or storefront.storage.session. The compression option accepts the values deflate, gzip, brotli and none. After activating cache compression, it is recommended to completely empty the corresponding cache instance / database, e.g. Redis.

See more information in our Storefront Core documentation.

Storefront Core

Unified Storefront Core Cache Handling

We have unified the Storefront Core cache handling, changing how cache and session storage are managed within Storefront Core. Storefront Core will now use the storefront-cache mountpoint as the root for its cache storage, and storefront-session for sessions storage. The Storefront Core configuration now includes storefront.storage.cache and storefront.storage.session config options to automatically create these mountpoints. This addresses a critical memory leak, which could result in a new Redis connection being created per request and thus causing high memory usage on the Node server, as well as on the Redis server.

Readding CampaignKey for Nuxt 3

We have readded the campaignKey to be used within a Nuxt 3-based Storefront application.

Security Improvements

We removed the return of OAuth tokens from RPC methods and we now ensure that sessions are not shared between different country shops.

Technical Improvements

We improved the error handling for Storefront Core for errors that occur in a fetch call within an RPC method and we now prevent potential infinite loops should log writing fail.

Storefront API

Enhancement of Storefront API Promotions endpoint

In addition to already developed functionalities for Promotion Engine, Storefront API promotions endpoint now also exposes `priority' field in its response body.

  • `priority' field is a value defined in the SCAYLE Panel, where you can create and manage promotions. It is defined as a priority of the promotion compared to others and it is mainly useful when there are multiple promotions that have been defined.

Admin API

Fallback to the Default merchant for retro-compatibility reasons:

  • We adjusted Products, Variant, Stocks and Prices endpoints in order to ensure the retro-compatibility in case an additional Merchant is added to the system. If no merchantReferenceKey is provided in the requests, SCAYLE Admin API will assume that the change is intended for the default merchant.

Storefront API

Improvements to our Promotion Engine Feature

We have made further improvements to our basket's Endpoints with regard to our Promotion Engine feature. These improvements will simplify the implementation of the Promotion Engine on the Basket page by showing the correct promotions & promotion prices/discounts to your users.

  • Validation of Promotion IDs attached to any items in the basket.
  • For each basket item that has a promotion we add its validation status and the failed conditions.
  • Implementation of Price Calculations: Once the promotions are validated we modify the item prices for both unit and total to include the promotion reductions.

Once the basket item has a Promotion ID attached then promotion reduction will be applied automatically, if the conditions defined in the promotion are fulfilled.

  • For our Insights Section on the PDP we added an additional validation for the selectable shops: only shops are selectable which have at least one country that the product is assigned to. Otherwise the dashboard would return no data.
  • The KPI widget “New Customers” on the general dashboard does not include guest customers anymore but only newly registered customers for a chosen time frame
  • The page under Settings > Imports has been given a new look: a new module with an overview of all imports opens with a click on "New Import".

  • We fixed a small error in the “Price and Inventory” table on the PDP that resulted in an incorrect “RRP” (recommended retail price) being displayed

Admin API

  • Create Customer Address Endpoint: We extended the Create customer address endpoint with support for setting the referenceKey directly when creating a customer address. Now you do not need to send an additional request to update the referenceKey after creating the new address. Please note that updating the referenceKey for an existing customer address is still possible only using a dedicated Update customer address reference key endpoint.
