RO CSVI 7.20.0 release
This new release of RO CSVI is a regular feature release containing some bugfixes and some new features. There seems to be a never-ending thirst for features, and where possible we try to quench that thirst. This release sees some improvements for J2Store and as always, VirtueMart support has been extended as well.
A small player in the field of e-commerce but we see a steady increase in the number of users and as such also the requests come in. In this RO CSVI 7.20.0 release we have added the following features:
- Option to specify SKUs for generated variants
- Quantity field for variants on import
- Quantity field for variants on export
We have documentation ready to explain on how to import SKUs for generated variants and for the quantity field we extended the existing document J2Store Variants Import.
XML parsing updated
One bigger change is that we fixed the XML parsing. There were actually two parsers, one for the import and one for the analyzer. This has now been converted into a single parser that is used by both the import and the analyzer. At the same time we have made the parser more robust to be able to handle more XML variations. If you notice any issues with your XML files, do not hesitate to let us know and we can have a look.
The conditional rule has been upgraded to be able to fill another field with a value based on the value of the field being processed. For example, you want to set the value of field X to 5 but only if field Y has a value of 2. This is now possible with the conditional rule. The documentation is not ready yet but should become available in the next few days. You can read on how to use this new feature in the Replace a field with the value of another field using a rule document.
This time we added a small option in the VirtueMart Product import, where you can set that any related categories should be deleted on import. This can help to clean out any related categories for products that no longer use them.
Joomla User Import
The Joomla User import no longer requires the usergroup field for existing users. During the import of Joomla users and the user already exists in the system, the usergroup fieldname is optional. In case the field does exist and have a value, the groups the user is assigned to will be updated.
