The new feature that allows for multiple baskets is a game-changer. I recall the hassle of having to manipulate transactions frequently to perform real-time calculations without interfering with the current basket, or having to work with custom objects. But now, those days are behind us!
Here are the new APIs:
The SCAPI/OCAPI have not received any updates despite the official documentation still stating the same:
But I hope this will be changed with standard APIs in the future, or once we have full access to the custom API option for POST/PUT/…, we can build them ourselves!
Get Einstein Recommendations for Large Product Catalogs
Having a large catalog and providing the right recommendations can be challenging. This change supports an even larger catalog, making it an excellent improvement.
Renew eCDN Certificates in Business Manager
Is that Let’s Encrypt in the screenshot? This new feature will make life a lot easier! Forgetting to upload a certificate can have serious repercussions – so having this automated (for supported services) is a welcome change!
OCAPI & SCAPI
Updated infrastructure layers and routing
Recently, there has been some “architectural refactoring” which involved removing and changing some components. Unfortunately, there isn’t much information available about this.
However, this is happening on the v1 of the APIS and it doesn’t require any action from the customers’ end. But if you notice any new bugs or peculiarities – report them!
Custom Query Parameters in SCAPI
A highly requested feature to expand the possibilities of custom hooks has been added, providing greater flexibility and supporting more use cases in headless.
Update Main Product Variants for a Bundled Line Item
The support for headless scenarios is essential as the Composable Storefront gains more prominence in customer projects. Therefore, it is a great addition. However, it is unclear whether this support is for the OCAPI, the SCAPI, or both.
Since the SCAPI has a different release log, it is suspected that the support is for the OCAPI, which flows through to the SCAPI as it is a layer on top of the OCAPI.
Does someone care to experiment and let me know?
Email Notification of Changes to Inactive User Settings
There isn’t much to say about this feature, but it’s important for users to be aware of its automatic nature.
Enable Read Only Account Manager Access
A new feature in the Account Manager allows viewing of critical configuration without editing access. A great new addition to the roles in my opinion!
