Breaking Changes


Security Changes in Payment API

The following new keys are added to the web.config file to prevent Payment API to be accessed from unidentified sources:

  • EnableSwagger: This key can be used to enable or disable the swagger

  • CORS_Domains: This key can be used to provide Payment API access to only specific admin and web store URLs

  • ZnodePrivateKey: This key is added so that the values from admin and web store keys can be compared with the value added for the key available in the Payment API so that access can be provided to applications whose key values match the key value available for the Payment API

It is essential to make sure that the appropriate values are set for these keys otherwise the payments will not work.


Bundled Product Inventory

The following settings/behavior will be now be managed using the details saved against the included products (child products) for a bundled product:

  • Product Inventory: When a bundled product is ordered or returned, the inventory of included products will be deducted or restocked respectively

  • Out Of Stock Options: Depending on the value saved for this setting for included products (child products), the bundled product’s stock level will be decided


Boost And Bury Operations

Only positive decimal input values “greater than or equal to 1”, and “greater than 0 and less than 1” can be used to boost and bury the position of products on the Search Result and Product Details pages of the web store.

Enhancements


[ZPD-13882/ZLMC-2055] - Bundled Product Enhancements

Administration / Shopper Experience

Admin users will now have the ability to manage and import the quantities of included products (child products) per bundle. Therefore, when a bundled product is ordered or returned, the inventory of included products will be deducted or restocked according to the included quantities.

The UI of the Bundled Product Details page has also been enhanced to provide a more user-friendly experience to the customers (shoppers). 



[ZPD-14088/ZPD-14265/ZPD-12130/ZLMC-2281/ZLMC-1620] - Boost And Bury Operations Using Boosting Query

Administration

Elasticsearch now supports only positive decimal input values “greater than or equal to 1”, and “greater than 0 and less than 1”, to boost and bury the position of products using a Boosting Query respectively, on the Search Result and product detail pages of the web store. This change has been introduced in Znode.



[ZPD-14291/ZPD-14664] - Performance: Admin Dashboard Screen

Administration

The code for the Dashboard screen has been optimized. This has increased the performance and reduced the time required to load the Quotes list, Orders list, Returns list, Total Sales, Total Quotes, Total Orders, and Total Returns sections of the Dashboard screen.


[ZPD-14671/ZPD-13197] - Performance: Quotes List

Administration


The following changes are made to the Quotes list:

  • The Customer Name, Email ID, and Phone Number columns have been added in the Quotes table

  • The Search will only use Quote No., and Email ID to fetch the results

  • The data for this list will be fetched from fewer DB tables

These changes have not only reduced the loading time of all the per-page data records but have also reduced the time required to get the searched/filtered results.

Important: Since the values of Customer Name, Email ID, and Phone Number will not be fetched from the ZnodeUser table therefore when Customer Name, Email address, or Phone No. of a user is updated, it will not reflect on the Quotes list, and Orders list when Quotes are converted to Orders.


[ZPD-14671/ZPD-13198] - Performance: Returns List

Administration


The following changes are made to the Returns list:

  • An Order No. column is added

  • The Order No., Customer Name, and Email ID columns have been added in the Returns table

  • The Search will only use Order No., Return No., and Email ID to fetch the results

  • The data for this list will be fetched from fewer DB tables

These changes have not only reduced the loading time of all the per-page data records but have also reduced the time required to get the searched/filtered results.

Important: Since the values of Customer Name and Email ID, will not be fetched from the ZnodeUser table therefore when Customer Name and Email ID of user are updated, it will not reflect on the Returns list.


[ZPD-14185/ZLMC-2248] - Encrypted Username For Reset Password Feature

Commerce

The Username used for resetting the password will now be sent in an encrypted format in the Reset Password URL.
