HOW TO: Prevent empty fields in supplier catalog from overwriting existing values in the Master catalog during the Merge process of Product 360
Solution

There is a setting to configure the behavior of merge setting overwrite in the plugin_customization.ini.

By default, the empty values in the supplier catalog overwrite the value in the master catalog. But if you set mergeEmptyFields to false shown as follows, empty values in the supplier catalog will not be merged into the master catalog for merge setting "overwrite".

 

com.heiler.ppm.merge.commons/overwrite.mergeEmptyFields=false

 

Documented in this snippet from plugin_customization.ini:
# ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
# Merge Settings
# ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
#
# Merge mode "overwrite": If set to true an empty string in the supplier data
# overwrites existing data in the master catalog.
# If set to false and the supplier data is an empty string, the master data is not overwritten.
#
# com.heiler.ppm.merge.commons/overwrite.mergeEmptyFields=true

More Information

​Problem:


If a supplier catalog is merged with the setting "Overwrite", existing values in the Master catalog are deleted if they do not exist in the supplier catalog.
