How to import product to episerver commerce and leave it as draft(not publish)

Vote:
 

Hi,

I am trying to write a custom import tool use CatalogImportExport  to import product to eppiserver and leave it as draft version, but i did not see any option to do it

Can anyone please give me the solution to this problem?

Here is my code

// Start import
using (var catalogXmlStream = new MemoryStream())
{
catalogXDoc.Save(catalogXmlStream);
// set stream pointer to beginning
catalogXmlStream.Seek(0, SeekOrigin.Begin);

// import back by episerver import export
CatalogImportExport cie = new CatalogImportExport();
cie.ImportExportProgressMessage += progressHandler.Invoke;
cie.Import(catalogXmlStream, true);
}

Thanks,

Thao Pham

Hi Quan,

When i set the IsActive of the entry to false it lead to product no longer display on front-end, is there any way to leave it as draff version like in a "AwaitingApproval/CheckedIn?

Thanks,

It should be still visible in Catalog UI. if you want it to be visible in view mode (For end users) then you would have to change the code to not filter it.

Hi Quan,

As i understand, if IsActive set to false, then entry will be change status publish to checkout. But i still want to keep the publish version in order to display on www and just create a draft version to pending aprroval

I try to decombine the code of episerver i can see two flash NeedToSyncDraft/NeedToSyncDraft

So can i use this flash to solve my issue?

/// <summary>Updates the catalog.</summary>
public void Save()
{
if (this.CurrentDto.Catalog == null || this.CurrentDto.Catalog.Count <= 0)
return;
CatalogAdmin.EnsureLanguagesContainsDefault(this.CurrentDto);
this.EnsureUriSegment(this.CurrentDto);
using (TransactionScope transactionScope = new TransactionScope())
{
HashSet<int> source = new HashSet<int>((IEnumerable<int>) this.CurrentDto.Catalog.Where<CatalogDto.CatalogRow>((Func<CatalogDto.CatalogRow, bool>) (row =>
{
if (row.RowState != DataRowState.Deleted)
return row.RowState != DataRowState.Added;
return false;
})).Select<CatalogDto.CatalogRow, int>((Func<CatalogDto.CatalogRow, int>) (row => row.CatalogId)));
IEnumerable<IBulkChangeItem<CatalogEntryChange>> changes = this.GetCatalogEntryChanges(this.CurrentDto);
DataHelper.SaveDataSetSimple(CatalogDataHelper.CreateDataCommand(), (DataSet) this.CurrentDto, CatalogAdmin._tableNames);
if (!CatalogContext.DisableVersionSync && (!this.CurrentDto.Items.Contains((object) CatalogEventArgs.NeedToSyncDraft) || (bool) this.CurrentDto.Items[(object) CatalogEventArgs.NeedToSyncDraft]))
{
this._catalogContentSync.CreateDraft(this.CurrentDto, PrincipalInfo.CurrentPrincipal.Identity.Name);
this._catalogContentSync.DeletePublishedVersionsOfInactiveContents(this.CurrentDto.Catalog.Where<CatalogDto.CatalogRow>((Func<CatalogDto.CatalogRow, bool>) (row => !row.IsActive)).Select<CatalogDto.CatalogRow, int>((Func<CatalogDto.CatalogRow, int>) (row => row.CatalogId)).ToArray<int>(), CatalogContentType.Catalog);
}
else if (CatalogContext.DisableVersionSync && !this.CurrentDto.Items.Contains((object) CatalogEventArgs.NeedToSyncDraft))
this._catalogContentSync.DeleteAllVersions(source.ToArray<int>(), CatalogContentType.Catalog);
TransactionScope.OnCommit((System.Action) (() => this._changeManager.NotifyChanges(changes)));
transactionScope.Complete();
}
}

Thanks,

Then you would have to use the second option.

Hi Quan,

The second option is import one by one, that is not good solution, i prefer using CatalogImportExport to import by bactch

Any suggestion?

Thanks,

Unfortunately importing uses the lower layer level so it does not know anything about "versions". If you are importing with CatalogImportExport then there is no way to create new draft version while keeping the older version published.
