MINOR You can now extend product prices by adding custom attributes to a product price. This enables you to optimize your pricing data, enhancing your ability to respond to market dynamics and customer preferences. For more information, see Add a product price to a price book.

MINOR A new Get all Prices endpoint allows you to retrieve all prices for a product, irrespective of the different price books that include that product's price. For example, you can filter for all prices for a specified sku, or filter for all prices changed before or after a given date. This will retrieve prices from all price books. For more information, see Get all product prices.

MINOR Commerce Manager: A new and improved Bundle Builder is available. The new bundle builder features an upgraded visual design, making it easier to use and more intuitive, with a smoother interface that simplifies the bundle creation process. For more information, see Creating Bundles.

MINOR Commerce Manager: Improved account search functionality to enable more effective filtering by name, legal name, registration ID, and external reference. For more information, see Searching Accounts.

MINOR The following endpoints now support beta filtering.

Beta filtering uses a new syntax that is an evolution of the original syntax, allowing more characters and formats. For more information, see Beta filtering.

MINOR We have improved the application of cart-level promotions to ensure accurate discount distributions, addressing issues where discounts were incorrectly redistributed in certain situations involving exclusions.

MINOR We have added the capability to configure the storage of null values in Custom API Entries. For more information, see Null Values.

MINOR On October 18, 2022, we notified customers that the bundle_configuration object was misspelled as bundle_configuation in the cart, cart items, and order items, and has been deprecated. We recommend using bundle_configuration to create bundle configurations.

MINOR The Configure a Shopper Bundle endpoint now supports using the include parameter to retrieve key attribute data for the products in a product bundle. This is useful because, when your shoppers select the products in the bundle that they want to purchase in your storefront, you can then display all the relevant product information to your shoppers. See Configure a Shopper Bundle.

MINOR You can now configure the expiry time of Account Management Authentication Tokens to implement an idle timeout feature. For more information, see Implementing Idle Timeout.

MINOR Shoppers can now select a bundle that has a default list of products. Shoppers can choose to have all the default products, keep some of the default products or change the default products completely. This is useful, for example, if you want a new addition fragrance in a fragrance bundle to appear as the default option. For more information, see Dynamic Bundles.

MAJOR We have introduced a new feature, called Promotions Builder, powered by our Rule Promotion engine. This feature offers you the flexibility in providing diverse discounts to shoppers, supporting discounts of varying complexities, ranging from code-based customer discounts to Buy X Get Y discounts, fixed price promotions, cart fixed discount, and many more based on your business needs. Moreover, it is compatible with our existing legacy promotions capability, ensuring a smooth transition to the new Promotions Builder. For more information, see Promotions Builder in Commerce Manager. To create promotions using API, see Rule Promotions. To apply Rule Promotions API in carts and orders, you must enable the use_rule_promotion field in Cart Settings.

MINOR The Get all Products and Get all Promotions endpoints now support beta filtering. The new syntax is an evolution of the original syntax, and allows more characters and formats. For more information, see Beta Filtering.

MAJOR You can now use product tags to store or assign a key word against a product or service that you sell in your store. For example, you could tag the products that you sell by color. This allows your shoppers to search your products by color, enabling them to quickly find what they are looking for, increasing the likelihood of a purchase, and boosting conversion rates. For more information, see Product Tags.

MINOR A new count attribute maintains the published release count of catalogs in the catalogs Release object. For more information, see Catalog Releases.

MINOR In Product Experience Manager, now, when a parent product that has variations and/or variation options with a configured sort_order is published in a catalog, the response displays the sorted variations and variation options. Variations and variation options are displayed in descending order according to their sort_order values. For more information, see Get all products in a catalog release, Get a product in a catalog release, Get all products in a hierarchy, and Get all products in a node.

BUILDER COMPONENT Released a new Elastic Path JSON Schema component V1 (US & EU). This component allows validation of a JSON object against a given JSON schema using the jsonschema library. For more information, see Elastic Path JSON Schema.

MINOR In Product Experience Manager, when you export products that have templates, you can now use template slugs instead of IDs to export templates associated with products. For more information, see Product Export API**.**

MINOR We have now updated our system to calculate line finances based on unrounded unit values, ensuring accuracy and reducing rounding errors during the order calculation process.

INTEGRATION HUB: Released Algolia - Full / Delta / Large Catalog V64 (US) and V49 (EU): The new version includes a fix in the validation process for sale price currencies. Previously, an issue arose where currencies were provided as present but null. This update introduces additional validation steps to rectify the errors resulting from this issue.

MINOR In Product Experience Manager, when you create variations and variation options, two new attributes, created_at and updated_at, allow you to see when variations and variation options were created or updated. For more information, see Variations API and Variation Options API.

INTEGRATION HUB: Released Algolia - Full / Delta / Large Catalog V63 (US) and V48 (EU): The new version includes bug fixes that address potential occurrences of errors within the category search attributes when a product is assigned to multiple nodes. Additionally, a bug was fixed to ensure that the ep_name_plus_slug_categories option defaults to false.

MINOR In Product Experience Manager, when you import products that have templates, you can now use template slugs as well as IDs to import templates associated with products. This makes it easier to see that data is being imported into the correct template fields. For more information, see Importing Custom Data (Flows).

MINOR When exporting products in Product Experience Manger, new fields in the exported CSV file capture the date and time a product and a template was created and/or updated. For more information, see Export Products.

MINOR Commerce Manager: When you navigate to Store > Promotions, a new Search coupon code field allows you to filter a promotion code across all promotions. For more information, see Searching a Promotion Code.

MINOR In Product Experience Manager, a bundle can now consist of one or more products. This is useful if you have a fixed, marketable banner product featuring only one item, such as a 'product of the week'. In this use case, the banner bundle description remains the same, while the product within the bundle can be easily swapped in and out. For more information, see Bundles.

MAJOR Commerce Manager: A new Nodes view is now available in Product Experience Manager > Configurations. The Nodes view arranges nodes in a tree-like structure, enabling you to see at a glance the relationships between your nodes and making navigation easier between nodes. You can move nodes by dragging and dropping them between other nodes, enabling easier management of your nodes. For more information, see Hierarchies.

MAJOR In Product Experience Manager, we have introduced a new product attribute called Product Types. This enables products to be categorized by type, for example, standard, parent, child and bundle. This is useful because it allows you to filter on the product types relevant to your business. Product types also allow you to segregate your catalogs, for example, by bundles or child products. To see the product types in your current catalogs, you must initiate a full catalog publish. To do this, modify your hierarchies or price books, for example, add a new hierarchy or price book to your catalog, then publish the catalog. (You can remove these once the full catalog publish has performed.) For more information, see Product Types.

MAJOR Some Product Experience Manager endpoints operate as jobs (for example, Product Import API). Now, jobs are processed one at a time. You can continue to send requests using endpoints that function as jobs, but those jobs are queued. In other words, Commerce looks for any jobs that have a status of PENDING and starts the job with the earliest created date. This process is repeated until all jobs are processed. For more information, see Jobs.

MINOR We have introduced a new optional field called automatic_payment_methods to Elastic Path Payments Powered by Stripe gateway as per Stripe's recommendation. When this field is enabled, it displays all the payment methods that are enabled from the Stripe dashboard.

MAJOR When managing Application Keys, you now have the ability to specify the minimum number of requests per second that are allowed, reserving a rate limit for each key. This enables you to finely adjust the performance and availability of your applications that are integrated with our platform. For more information, see Application Keys Overview.

Additionally, in Commerce Manager, we have added a new Requests per second field. This field allows you to enter the reserved rate limit for the key when Creating an Application Key.

MINOR Commerce Manager: You can now generate a delta file with all the contents of a catalog release from Commerce Manager. For more information, see Using Catalog Delta Files.
