The 18C September Maintenance Pack update of Oracle Commerce Cloud includes substantive improvements and changes to the product.
What follows is a brief summary. For more details about each feature and improvement, please review the What’s New 18C September Maintenance Pack update document and the official Oracle Commerce Cloud documentation in the Oracle Cloud Help Center.
The major new features released in Oracle Commerce Cloud 18C Maintenance Pack include:
Merchants can now optimize search results right in the Admin UI in a variety of ways using the new Dynamic Curation feature in Oracle Commerce Cloud making it easier and faster to improve search relevancy and present the right search results to users based on a number of criteria and KPIs. Includes ability to order search results dynamically using retail metrics, such as product views and purchases in the last 30 days, inventory stock of a particular SKU, and catalog-specific data (e.g. product type). Also allows for combining multiple criteria together to best drive results and ability to save and preview changes immediately.
This feature allows merchants to maintain multiple inventory locations that service specific sites. For example, a merchant’s UK-based site can access its UK-based distribution warehouse, while its German-based site can access its German-based distribution warehouse), allowing transparency of inventory across multiple locations. This is currently an API-only feature. Admin API and webhooks have been updated to be inventory location-aware.
OCC’s Assisted Selling Application now leverages the new Multiple Locations API to show store-specific inventory on the product detail page. Inventory can now be displayed across sites and stores as configured by the Administrator, so that the store associate can see product inventory for multiple locations.
