Release notes:

  • AKMAGECON-144 - Default visibility - prevent the storeview visibility values to get exported.

    When the default visibility database setting is active only the product visibility value for the ‘all’ storeview will get exported.

  • AKMAGECON-143 - Prevent family mappings to get updated.

    While exporting families the related mappings will not get updated anymore. By doing this the manual changes are kept intact. We also fixed the issue related to AKMAGECON-141 for '_axis' attributes.

  • AKMAGECON-137 - Temporary fix open queue items grid

    Mysql was returning an 'only_full_group_by' error on the open queue items grid. We solved this by removing the 'domain' and 'created' fields from the grid. A follow up ticket was created.

6.2.0 - (30-12-2022)
  • AKMAGECON-134 - Full attribute option updates based on the mapping table.

    AKMAGECON-126 part two. When activating the 'Export option update delta data' setting, the export job in not using the events table for option updates. It will update all mapped options instead.

    A new export setting was added. It's now possible to export products only on automated exports. Activating this setting will disable the category, attribute, family and option export steps.

6.1.3 - (21-12-2022)
  • AKMAGECON-130 - Removed the default locale filter on Magento UUID & reference export profiles.

    When creating Magento UUID or reference export profiles a default locale filter was set. This caused problems when editing these profiles.

  • AKMAGECON-129 - Filter inheritance on quick export jobs went wrong with boolean values.

    When inheriting boolean export filters on quick export jobs, these boolean values where converted to strings. This resulted in the following error 'Property expects a boolean as data, string given'. This problem is gone now.

6.1.2 - (15-11-2022)
