Hi,

I purchased Spiral Paid Download Plugin for VirtueMart to manage the download link to download our digital products after they are purchased.
The manual creation of the products and the related custom field has been fully successful.
Now I have to figure out how to do it automatically with CSIV Pro!

I thought of using these fields

plugin_name, custom_element, custom_title, custom_value, field_type
spiral_download, , Scarica_Prodotto, ,E

but trouble understanding how to proceed all'importazioe data for this custom field.

I enclose all the screenshots

Would you be so kind as to tell me how to proceed?

Thank you

Hello,
We don't support this Spiral Paid Download Plugin for VirtueMart in CSVI. If its like custom fields then you can look at Product import with custom fields documentation.

Hi,

I had imagined that you could not know about this plugin, just let me know in your opinion which fields can I use knowing which ones are managed by VM.

In practice, though there may be other fields in addition to these

plugin_name, custom_element, custom_title, custom_value, field_type

I will get in touch with the Spiral Paid provider that today is one of the most used components for download in the world!

Thank you

Hello,

The fields dealing with custom fields all start with custom_ as you can see in the document linked by Tharuna.

today is one of the most used components for download in the world!
I wonder why you are the only one so far to ask support for this. If there are enough people using CSVI and Spiral Paid, we can look into supporting it but unfortunately we can't do that for one person.
Kind regards,

OK,

what extention You can recommend me compatible with Joomla and VirtueMart 3.0 can generate download links for digital products?
There are many valid extensions able to manage VM download! You advise me as compatible with CSVI Pro? Which one would you use if you do not already use one for your e-commerce requirements? Not like JDownload that is only useful for Joomla!

Thanks for understanding!

Merry Christmas

Hello,

only two considerations in marketing:

the first is that I am really surprised to see a strategic business model so rigid and outdated in an extension in my opinion so highly strategic for any type of e-commerce project with Virtuemart!

the second is that for so many e-commerce projects dedicated to the intangible or digital download management market is considered a crucial point!

The first impact on the volume of products to be managed, while the second on the possibility to manage direct purchases a 24x7!

Have you ever thought about how many e-commerce projects are unsuccessful for these two points?

Instead of being geared up to handle the increased amount of compatibility to a higher value-added extensions, you lock yourself in an absurd development model that was used in the 90s!

Instead, I have found to date enough and flexible your publishing service for support.

Just wondered your advice for download management on the basis of your experience, without hold you responsible for anything!

Good year to you to your family and your co-workers

Hello,

What is wrong with our business model in your opinion?

Yes I agree, the market for intangible and digital downloads is a big market. However supporting this is not a decision to be made by us. Whatever VirtueMart supports in core, we will support. As for 3rd party extensions it will depend how successful the extension is. We just cannot support all 3rd party extensions. CSVI is extensible, this means you can write or hire someone to write the code you need in case CSVI doesn't support it.

Instead of being geared up to handle the increased amount of compatibility to a higher value-added extensions, you lock yourself in an absurd development model that was used in the 90s!
You mean we are not flexible because we don't support your extension?

Just wondered your advice for download management on the basis of your experience, without hold you responsible for anything!
The question is perhaps if VirtueMart is the right choice for digital downloads.

Happy holidays to you, your family and co-workers as well.
Kind regards,

Hello,

the Spiral Paid support service finally answered me, and to import with CSVI personallizato the field to download management has indicated to me this solution.

I have also asked their signs! Would you help me to be clearly defined in the CSV file to be imported?

This is their message:

<<<<<
"... You just have to import the data into the #__virtuemart_product_customfields table. Most of the

fields Should be fairly easy to understand: -

virtuemart_customfield_id is the primary key and Should be unique.
virtuemart_product_id is of course the id of the product in the table #__virtuemart_products
virtuemart_custom_id Corresponds to the id number of the custom field in the #__virtuemat_customs

table
customfield_value Should be set to spiral_download

customfield_params is where you September the parameters for the specific field, including the file

Media_id. The files Media_id is the primary key id of the files in the #__virtuemart_medias table. or

if you are uisng the AS3 Manager extension to sell cloud files then you would in September the package id

instead for the "package" parameter.

The parameters are not exactly json_encoded but are a string separated by the '|' character, an

example is: -
package = "" | object_key = "" | bucket = "" | Media_id = "30" | number_downloads = "0" | days_downloads = "0" |

title = "Articles Count" | short_description = "" | description = "" | loadStylesheet = "yes" | updateOrders = "yes" |

OrderStatus = [
    "C",
    "S"
] | AllowStreaming = "no" | speed = "100" | downloadType = "attachment" |

... "
>>>>>

I'm sure you can serve also for your other customers who bought Spiral Paid for VM! See images for detalis!

You could do a complete example, indicating which fields and what data to enter?

Thank you

Hello,
As already mentioned we don't support spiral download plugin but looking at the reply it looks more like product with custom fields import in CSVI. I can given you a basic idea on how to try the import with the reply you posted

virtuemart_customfield_id is the primary key and Should be unique.

This is auto increment value so you don't have to do anything with this field

virtuemart_product_id is of course the id of the product in the table #__virtuemart_products

You can use product_sku field which CSVI will check for product_id and insert it in database.

virtuemart_custom_id Corresponds to the id number of the custom field in the #__virtuemat_customs

use custom_title field and give the title of your spiral download plugin field, as per your screenshot it is scarica_prodotto.

So putting all these along with other fields an example would look like

"product_sku"; "custom_title";"custom_value";"custom_params"
"productA";"scarica_prodotto";"spiral_download";"package = "" | object_key = "" | bucket = "" | Media_id = "30" | number_downloads = "0" | days_downloads = "0" |
........ "

Again we are not sure how much this would work as we haven't tried this import. Try and let us know.
Kind regards,

Tharuna

Hi,

I understand that you unsupported "spiral download plugin", but I also believe that you will be able to understand what is important for us to define how to import all our products also this custom field!

I will not criticize your support line, but only make you think about what could be strategic for you to define this type of procedure, in my opinion, critical to any type of e-commerce project, even for those who have not yet purchased "spiral download plugin"!

I'll do a test by joining specidiche received by the "spiral download plugin" support and will keep you updated!

I only do that support the "spiral download plugin" the contrary is open to develop knowledge also towards CSVI!

To date I have not need your intervention for a fee, so it will not be necessary cost analysis on your part!

Thanks again

Hi,

I do not misunderstand me from you!

First I want to thank you for the support received so far, and, as I said, I renew my congratulations to both the product and for the management of knowledge published in your site!

What I am referring to is a management policy of each extension can increase the CSVI value on a global level for any e-commerce project!

I only say that if I were you I'd take advantage of any indication received from your customers and forum users to expand mutual knowledge, of course, only those extensions that can increase the added value of CSVI!

And expand to include and not exclude and limit!

Of course this is just my thought, based on my knowledge of marketing and tecnolgie online 25 years in business!

I hope to have given due respect and consideration I have repeatedly confirmed to you and CSVI.

Thank you

Yes, we would like to listen to our customers feedback and expand CSVI support accordingly but only if the number of users asking for the same feature are more. Unfortunately you are the only user asking for spiral download plugin support at this point. If we get more request on this plugin we will add it to our development todo list.

Of course this is just my thought, based on my knowledge of marketing and tecnolgie online 25 years in business!

I hope to have given due respect and consideration I have repeatedly confirmed to you and CSVI.

Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts.

Hi,

I did some tests with this code csv

product_sku custom_title custom_value custom_params
parent-sku Scarica_Prodotto spiral_download Media_id = "3658" | short_description = "description-short" | description = "description-complete" | number_downloads = "10" | days_downloads = "3" | downloadType = "attachment" | allowStreaming = "no" | speed = "100"

I seem to have realized that you need to create the custom field in the VM table and then add to it the contents of the product involved.

I think it is necessary to make an update Maintenance> Available Fields before importing the contents of the field.

In the first import I used a template Import> VirtueMart> Custom Field
In the second import I used a template Import> VirtueMart> Product

I got the addition of the custom field to the product and customizing some fields, but then I discovered that the custom field Scarica_Prodotto + was corrupted, so I had to cancel it!

I need these tests:
1 - Check the use of import fields
2 - Check the contents of each field of import, especially custom_params
3 - Figure out what type of template should I use, if it is correct to use two
4 - figure out what is the correct procedure if it is correct before Custom Field and then Product

I attach images and log

Thanks for collaboration

Hello,
I seem to have realized that you need to create the custom field in the VM table and then add to it the contents of the product involved.

Thats correct, you need to first add the custom field from VirtueMart custom fields page and then do the import.

I think it is necessary to make an update Maintenance> Available Fields before importing the contents of the field.

Yes so CSVI can fetch any new custom fields added.

In the first import I used a template Import> VirtueMart> Custom Field
In the second import I used a template Import> VirtueMart> Product

Looking at the file says that you should do import >> VirtueMart >> Product and of course you should have your custom fields added before doing the import.

I got the addition of the custom field to the product and customizing some fields, but then I discovered that the custom field Scarica_Prodotto + was corrupted, so I had to cancel it!

May be because we don't know how Spiral download plugin saves its custom fields so trying to do Import> VirtueMart> Custom Field would have corrupted it. It is better to add this field manually and then do product import with custom field.

I need these tests:
1 - Check the use of import fields
2 - Check the contents of each field of import, especially custom_params
3 - Figure out what type of template should I use, if it is correct to use two
4 - figure out what is the correct procedure if it is correct before Custom Field and then Product


Point 1 and 2 is explained in product import with custom fields document which i linked in my previous post too. This document doesn't explain anything specific on the extension but in general about how to use the custom fields.
Point 3- you need to use product import template.
Point 4- As said above, add the custom field manually and then do product import. That should fix your issue.
Kind regards,

Tharuna

Hi,

OK

to - before I enter the field manually
b - then I do the update Maintenance> Available Fields
c - then I import a template import >> >> VirtueMart Product

These points still outstanding:
1 - I did not understand how you can add a field manually to the product! So far I have studied only imports based on a template where all fields are already present! I think needs to use Templates> Template Fields, but then can not go on!
2 - If the point is right, I do not know whether to select Field name> combine and enter in Your field> Scarica_Prodotto or Field name> custom_title and enter in Your field> Scarica_Prodotto! Can you show me the right procedure?
3 - It is not true that we do not know where and how to download Spiral plugin saves his fields! When I created a field to update "Scarica_Prodotto" to import and combine the files to download the digital product VM shows me this message "Table updated: Tablename jos_virtuemart_product_custom_plg_spiral_download" (I am attaching the full picture of all other updated data)
4 - I'm collaborating with the Spiral Paid media to determine the tables, field values ​​to match!

Meanwhile you can give me more details on the above points?

Maybe I'll be the only one to ask for a similar procedure, but it certainly will not be the only one to have to work out how to import SCVI Pro with a download link.
The reason why I asked for an alternative to this plugin was just that!
It 'impossible for anyone who needs to automate the import of the download link!

Thanks again for your cooperation

Hello,
1 - I did not understand how you can add a field manually to the product! So far I have studied only imports based on a template where all fields are already present! I think needs to use Templates> Template Fields, but then can not go on!

To add template fields you can go to CSVI Pro >> Template fields page >> Click on New button >> Select your field >> Save the field. The other option is you can add the template fields by clicking on Quick add button on top of template fields page. Search for the field you need, click on checkbox on left and click Add fields button.

2 - If the point is right, I do not know whether to select Field name> combine and enter in Your field> Scarica_Prodotto or Field name> custom_title and enter in Your field> Scarica_Prodotto! Can you show me the right procedure?

You don't have to do any of these. As per your import file, the column headers in your file are same as database table columns. So you just need to set Use file for configuration to Yes in your import template settings on File tab. This setting tells CSVI to read the import file column headers and do the import.

3 - It is not true that we do not know where and how to download Spiral plugin saves his fields! When I created a field to update "Scarica_Prodotto" to import and combine the files to download the digital product VM shows me this message "Table updated: Tablename jos_virtuemart_product_custom_plg_spiral_download" (I am attaching the full picture of all other updated data)

I meant that CSVI don't know where and how spiral download plugin stores its fields. The table jos_virtuemart_product_custom_plg_spiral_download is not supported by CSVI.

4 - I'm collaborating with the Spiral Paid media to determine the tables, field values ​​to match!

If these media is stored in spiral plugin tables then we may not be able to help here. But lets see wait and see on the information you get.

Maybe I'll be the only one to ask for a similar procedure, but it certainly will not be the only one to have to work out how to import SCVI Pro with a download link.
The reason why I asked for an alternative to this plugin was just that!
It 'impossible for anyone who needs to automate the import of the download link!

As said before you are only user for now asking for the support for this extension. We will surely consider supporting this extension if we get more users coming with same requirement.
Kind regards,

Tharuna

Hi,

Everything would be much simpler if you had advised me which plugin you use to import the download links!

Receive from you a report of products already used to others does not mean that your customers then I consider you responsible for my results!

I do not think it is possible that among your many clients there is someone who is already a chart using plugins to match a link to their digital products!

Would you like me to believe that they all have a few products and then combine them all by hand?

I try to see if there are other possibilities with Spiral Paid!

Thanks any way

We don't support or recommend any download links extensions. We have told this when you started this post.

Receive from you a report of products already used to others does not mean that your customers then I consider you responsible for my results!

We are responsible for anything with your CSVI product import but not with Spiral download plugin. We don't have any idea on the tables or code this extension uses to help you with its import.

Would you like me to believe that they all have a few products and then combine them all by hand?

We are not sure how many of our clients are using this extension but we haven't got any user asking for help on this.
Kind regards,
