Commerce 365 for Magento 19.5.29569.0

Mar 16, 2022 by Elleke Braaksma
The latest version of Commerce 365 for Magento is available for BC 17, 18 and 19. This new version, among many other additions, improves handling of deleted item variants, allows you to copy attribute sets and includes improved data clean-up functions.

Update your Commerce 365 extension now via AppSource or by downloading the latest app file from the idyn portal.

Commerce 365 release v19.5.29569.0 contains the following improvements:

Business Central v20 support
With this version, we have made Commerce 365 for Magento compatible with Dynamics 365 Business Central 2022 Wave 1. (v20).

Azure Storage - File Share support for Media - Phase 1
This new media storage type allows you to manage and store all your item images in an Azure Storage File Share location. For now, switching to this storage type means that you have to manage all images within the Azure location. In phase 2 this will become a fully hybrid solution where you can manage images both in Azure and within Business Central.

Improved order data import
To prevent unexpected behaviour when customers enter exceptionally long lines of text for shipping addresses, or telephone numbers with all kinds of strange characters in them, we have added many additional checks and data clean-up functions.

Copy attribute sets
To speed up the creation of new attributes sets we have added a copy function. This will copy both groups and attributes from one attribute set to another.

Improved display of categories
When linking categories to an item, you will now see the full category structure, instead of just category codes. We also added a dedicated lookup page for working with larger categories trees.

Events added around attribute value mapping   
To add custom logic before, instead or after the attribute mapping mechanism processes a value we have added new events.

Minor enhancements and bug fixes
Minor fixes and enhancements have been implemented in this latest version of Commerce 365 for Magento. This includes the improved handling of deleted item variants, pricing at website level, improved error messages and more notifications and progress dialogues.
 
Upgrading always connects your BC to the production APIs
As of this release, any instance that has a Hub API URL that connects it to a staging environment will be automatically reconnected to the production API. This is now part of the standard procedures within the extension upgrade process.
