This topic describes how to partition catalog database objects into their own database in Episerver Commerce. This allows easy backup and rollback of the databases as part of the integration processes for Episerver Commerce.

Setting up partitioning

To set up partioning, change the database connection strings and create the catalog tables.

  1. In the ecf.catalog.config file, change the connection string to a new connection string that points to the database with the catalog tables.
    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <Catalog autoConfigure="true">
      <Connection connectionStringName="EcfSqlConnection" />
      <Cache enabled="true" collectionTimeout="0:1:0" entryTimeout="0:1:0" nodeTimeout="0:1:0" schemaTimeout="0:2:0" />
      <Encoding imageQualityPercentage="80" defaultFormat="jPeg" />
      <Roles />
        <add type="Mediachase.Commerce.Catalog.Loggers.CatalogLogger, Mediachase.Commerce" />
      <!-- Sale Price Types -->
        <add key="AllCustomers" value="0" description="All Customers" />
        <add key="Customer" value="1" description="Customer" />
        <add key="CustomerPriceGroup" value="2" description="Customer Price Group" controlUrl="~/Apps/Catalog/Modules/CustomerGroups.ascx" />
        <!-- Add custom types here -->
        <add key="JurisdictionGroup" value="3" description="Jurisdiction Group"/>
  2. To create the tables, run the following scripts, which can be found at:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\EPiServer\CMS\7.5.394.2\Install\Modules\EPiServer Commerce 7.5.394.2\ECF\Data\SqlScripts
    Print 'Installing Catalog Schema'
    Print 'Running ecf_db_CatalogSystem_schema.sql'
    :r ..\ecf_db_CatalogSystem_schema.sql
    Print 'Running ecf_db_CatalogSystem_storedprocedures.sql'
    :r ..\ecf_db_CatalogSystem_storedprocedures.sql
    Print 'Running ecf_db_CatalogSystem_DataLoad.sql'
    :r ..\ecf_db_CatalogSystem_DataLoad.sql
    Print 'Running ecf_db_CatalogSystem_diagram.sql'
    :r ..\ecf_db_CatalogSystem_diagram.sql Print 'Done'
