User based PIM feed

Hi guys,

I have a solution running 9.7.3 with PIM and Live integration to NAV 2018.

I need to create product feeds that have specific prices for each user.

I have tried it first with the options available in 9.7.3 and I got this error:

Error getting value from 'Price' on 'Dynamicweb.Ecommerce.ProductCatalog.ProductViewModel'

I have tried passing CustomerNUmber and UserID as parameters and I have also tried accessing the feed as an Authenticated user.

It just does not seem to work with LiveIntegration (I have not tried to disable the Live Integration but I have another post where Soren tested it without Live integration and supposedly, it works).

If there is no other solution for the error above, it is clear that I will have to upgrade my solution.

But even after upgrading, I am not sure how I can configure the feeds to be dynamically tied to users.

I see that I can manually set a User on the Feed by providing a UserID parameter but the UserID value seems to be encrypted.
Can I reproduce the encryption in the profile template in "Customer center" where I would publish the link to the personalised feed for each User?

Is there another way of generating these personalised feeds for each User?

Thank you,
Adrian

I have forgotten one more thing.

Assuming I am passing the UserID as a parameter on the feed, it will also take into account the assortment of that User?

Thank you,

Hi Adrian,

I tried an alternative, creating a PIM > Feed and, in the Context options, configuring a user with has special prices for all shops (the special price is a product discount for that user). See the attached image.

Sorry to say but this alternative doesn't work neither.

Regards,
Tomas

Hi Tomas,

Thank you for trying.

I should probably wait for some official guidance on this request as it seems to require some configuring.

Thank you,


Adrian

Hi Adrian,

Live Attributes, like Price & Stock, was a part of the Feeds improvement in DW9.9 ..

Please upgrade your solution to current version of DW9.9

Hi Soren,

I imagined it would require update.

What about the Assortments? Will they be honored?

Thank you,


Adrian

Hi Adrian,

But the function "Assortments" are only working in Ecommerce area, so I don't think you can use that ..

Hi Soren,

I understand that it usually works in Ecommerce. Live pricing is also an Ecommerce related feature. It has nothing to do with PIM.

It just seems natural that a user specific feed should honor live pricing and Assortments. In the end, that's why you would define it "User specific".

And I am not making up issues. This was actually requested by 3 of our B2B customers.

Don't you agree?

Thank you,

Adrian

Hi Adrian,

Agree ..

That's also why it's implemented in our newest version of PIM Channels/Feeds.

Assortments are not a part of that implementation, but if it is a need from the market, we can look into it ..

Thank you Soren.

I'd say it makes sense looking into it.

Thank you,

Hi Søren,

Any news regarding assortments in PIM feeds based on the selected user?
