Hybris backoffice customization

Scenario: I want to hide Time Created and other fields from Title item type create wizard.

To declare it in running systemOpen backoffice with admin user.Open Application Orchestrator by pressing F4 key.Click on Hybris symbol Y (Top right corner) and select show cockpit-config.xmlScroll down to last line in XML(ctr+end)Past the below XML code just before tagClick on store and save the filePress F4 again to close the Application OrchestratorTest your changes XML

Hybris enumtype static Vs dynamic

In Hybris, we can declare two type of enum, Static and Dynamic. Which basically differ by dynamic attribute (dynamic="false" and dynamic="true"). In simple words, I can say static enum(dynamic="false") is generated as the Java enum. In which list of values can only be changed during compilation time by changing the items.xml. In case of the dynamic enum(dynamic="true") we can change(add/remove) its values at runtime using hmc or Impex.

Regardless of an Enum type(Static/Dynamic), all its values get stored in enumerationvalues table. You can fetch all values using below flexible query.

select * from {enumerationvalue}
Static Enum: <enumtype code="FixedValueType" autocreate="true" generate="true"> <value code="value1"/> <value code="value2"/> </enumtype> By default, the dynamic attribute is false(dynamic="false"). You can declare static enum …

get models by example in Hybris

Sometimes, we are required to fetch data from our custom Item type in Hybris. So first thing comes to our mind is to write flexible search query. But you really don't need to do that if you know Hybris OOTB has getModelByExample and getModelsByExample API of flexibleSearchService, using which we can easily get the desired results.
Scenario Find CustomProduct having the same name
Solution You can create a method in DAO class. In which you need to create example model by setting required field (e.g name). Now call getModelsByExample method of the flexibleSearchService with exampleModel. public List<

How to create custom catalog synchronization job in Hybris?
Scenario My client wants to have product catalog sync cronjob. So the first thing that came to my mind was, It's quite easy, by creating an instance of CatalogSyncCronJob and assign it to appropriate sync job(Product Sync stage to Online) and trigger. But it won't work like that.
CatalogVersionSyncJob is designed to run only once with each instance. So if we create sync job instance by ImpEx/HMC, it will not get any newly / modified items in the second execution. because system needs a new instance for each sync execution! Wondering, how catalog synchronization works when we do it form Hybris HMC(Catalog Management Tool > Synchronization)? If we execute catalog sync from Catalog Management Tool, then each time, Hybris internally creates a new instance of selected sync job. Hence, it can detect new or modified items to sync.


Solution We can write the custom job, which basically does the same thing as HMC sync. cre…

How to redirect or forward request in Hybris?

What is basic difference between request Redirect Vs Forward?Redirect: Server sends a header (in response) back to the browser/client, which contain redirect URL, then browser initiates a new request to redirect URL. Browser creates a new request to the redirected URL.The browser displays the redirected URL.The client browser is involved.Redirect is slower.When can we use Redirect? @RequestMapping(value = "/originalurl", method = {RequestMethod.POST}) public String method(final Model model) { // ... return "redirect:/redirectToGeturl"; } Usually, when data is posted to the server, we should redirect to get method(URL). So browser displays redirected URL(/redirectToGeturl). Which also prevent data resubmission on browser refreshed(F5) as the request to will go to redirected URL(/redirectToGeturl). Forward: Within the server, control can be forwarded to target resource(URL). Which is done by container internally so browser/client is not aware of it. The…

How to add you custom class in HAC logging list?

Scenario Hybris use log4j2 logger. We can change the log level for preconfigured classes from the HAC > Platform > Loggin (like root, org.springframework etc.). But what if we want to configure logger for our custom class. SolutionAdd logger statement in your java classadd log4j2 configuration for your custom Java classRestart the Hybris serverMyService.Java private static final Logger LOG = Logger.getLogger(MyService.class); LOG.debug("I am debug log"); local.properties \#log4j2 configuration log4j2.rootLogger.level = warn log4j2.logger.myService.name = com.extended.service.impl.MyService log4j2.logger.myService.level = warn log4j2.logger.myService.appenderRef.stdout.ref = STDOUT log4j2.logger.customService.name = com.extended.service.impl.CustomService log4j2.logger.customService.level = warn log4j2.logger.customService.appenderRef.stdout.ref = STDOUT
