3. Customizing Sitecore Commerce Connect Sync provider and Product base class

Brief Description: Sitecore Commerce Connect comes with a default synchronization provider that is used to sync products from ERP. Often, we need to check a lot of parameters (custom license, etc..) before actually kicking off the sync so that the sync is not kicked off when there is a definite failure ahead. This session will provide the basics of extending product sync provider and also tell what not to skip while extending the provider. Also depending on client’s need, there could be some attributes that are not supported OOTB by commerce connect product base class. This session will give an example of how to extend the product class to include new properties like “unit of measure”, “is Promotional”, etc..
