    RECOMMENDATION:
    

Problem conclusion

  • The Management Center code can be fixed to no longer exclude
    sales catalogs when using the Promotion or Marketing tools in a
    storefront asset store.  Due to the nature of this fix and the
    modification of non-restricted, customizable Management Center
    files, this APAR does not include any code changes. The code
    changes must be applied manually in a development environment.
    Once all of the file updates listed below have been completed,
    the Management Center files need to be deployed for use by
    business users.
    
    1. Open WebSphere Commerce Developer
    (http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/wchelp/v7r0m0/topic/co
    m.ibm.commerce.developer.doc/refs/rdestartwctoolkit.htm) and
    switch to the Enterprise Explorer view.
    
    2. Open the file
    LOBTools\WebContent\config\commerce\marketing\MarketingManagemen
    tToolDefinition.def
    3. Locate the line: <ObjectTypeFilter
    baseDefinitionName="catSalesCatalogGroupsFilter"/>
    4. Replace that line with: <ObjectTypeFilter
    baseDefinitionName="catSalesCatalogGroupsAllowStorefrontAssetSto
    reFilter"/>
    
    5. Open the file
    LOBTools\WebContent\config\commerce\promotion\PromotionManagemen
    tToolDefinition.def
    6. Locate the line: <ObjectTypeFilter
    baseDefinitionName="catSalesCatalogGroupsFilter"/>
    7. Replace that line with: <ObjectTypeFilter
    baseDefinitionName="catSalesCatalogGroupsAllowStorefrontAssetSto
    reFilter"/>
    
    8. Open the file
    LOBTools\WebContent\config\commerce\catalog\restricted\CatalogMa
    nagementFilterDefinitions.def
    9. Locate the line starting with: <ObjectTypeFilter
    definitionName="catSalesCatalogGroupsFilter"
    displayName="${catalogResources.salesCategoriesFilterTitle}"
    filterType="SalesCategories"
    10. After that ObjectTypeFilter element, add the following
    additional ObjectTypeFilter element:
      <ObjectTypeFilter
    definitionName="catSalesCatalogGroupsAllowStorefrontAssetStoreFi
    lter"
    displayName="${catalogResources.salesCategoriesFilterTitle}"
    filterType="SalesCategories"
    objectTypes="DefaultCatalog,ChildCatalogGroup,ChildInheritedCata
    logGroup,SalesCatalog,InheritedSalesCatalog,ChildSalesCatalogGro
    up,ChildInheritedSalesCatalogGroup,SharedSalesCatalogGroup,Share
    dInheritedSalesCatalogGroup,SharedCatalogGroup,SharedInheritedCa
    talogGroup,ChildSalesCatalogGroupForSalesCatalog,ChildInheritedS
    alesCatalogGroupForSalesCatalog,SharedSalesCatalogGroupForSalesC
    atalog,SharedInheritedSalesCatalogGroupForSalesCatalog,SharedCat
    alogGroupForSalesCatalog,SharedInheritedCatalogGroupForSalesCata
    log">
      <EnablementOrCondition
    baseDefinitionName="catStoreTypeSalesCatalogObjectFilterRestrict
    ionAllowStorefrontAssetStore"/>
     </ObjectTypeFilter>
    
    11. Open the file
    LOBTools\WebContent\config\commerce\catalog\objectDefinitions\Ca
    talogCommonObjectDefinitions.def
    12. Locate the line starting with:  <EnablementOrCondition
    conditionId="storeTypeCondition3"
    13. After that EnablementOrCondition element, add the following
    additional EnablementOrCondition element:
    
     <!---
      This is a condition to remove the sales catalog option from
    the filter in the explorer view for store of type:<br/>
       <ul>
        <LI>SHS (supplier hosted store)
        <LI>RPS (Consumer direct reseller store front asset store)
        <LI>BRP (B2B reseller store front asset store)
        <LI>DPS (Distributor asset store)
        <LI>DPX (Distributor proxy store)
        <LI>SCS (Supplier catalog asset store)
        <LI>SPS (Supplier asset store)
        <LI>HCP (Hosting hub)
        <LI>PBS (Store directory)
       </ul>
      Note that this condition allows the store types MPS and BMP
    which are for
      Consumer direct hosted store front asset store and
      B2B hosted store front asset store respectively.
      By adding or removing wcfEnablementCondition for the
    contextName storeType, you can control in which store type
      the option of Sales Catalog Categories will appear in the
    explorer view.<br/>
     -->
     <EnablementOrCondition conditionId="storeTypeCondition4"
    definitionName="catStoreTypeSalesCatalogObjectFilterRestrictionA
    llowStorefrontAssetStore" negate="true">
      <EnablementCondition conditionId="shsCondition"
    contextName="storeType" enablementValue="SHS"/>
      <EnablementCondition conditionId="rpsCondition"
    contextName="storeType" enablementValue="RPS"/>
      <EnablementCondition conditionId="brpCondition"
    contextName="storeType" enablementValue="BRP"/>
      <EnablementCondition conditionId="dpsCondition"
    contextName="storeType" enablementValue="DPS"/>
      <EnablementCondition conditionId="dpxCondition"
    contextName="storeType" enablementValue="DPX"/>
      <EnablementCondition conditionId="scsCondition"
    contextName="storeType" enablementValue="SCS"/>
      <EnablementCondition conditionId="spsCondition"
    contextName="storeType" enablementValue="SPS"/>
      <EnablementCondition conditionId="hcpCondition"
    contextName="storeType" enablementValue="HCP"/>
      <EnablementCondition conditionId="pbsCondition"
    contextName="storeType" enablementValue="PBS"/>
     </EnablementOrCondition>
    
    After you complete your customization:
    
        1. Save all the updated files.
        2. Test your changes by viewing them in the Management
    Center, using this URL: https://hostname:8000/lobtools.
        3. Deploy your changes to your production environment.
