Disable Legacy Marketing System


I may be completly overlooking this in the documentation, but....

How do I disable the legacy marketing system?  I was able to turn on the Episerver beta features, and I have access to the new (BETA) Marketing system, but I would like to disable the legacy marketing system.  How do I do this?

When you turn on the new system (by IFeatureSwitch), the legacy marketing system will automatically be disabled.

Interesting, IFeatureSwitch, I have not done that yet.

I enabled the marketing beta view by adding the following to the providers section in my web.config:

<add name="EPiBetaUsers" type="EPiServer.Security.MappedRole, EPiServer.Framework" roles="WebAdmins, Administrators" mode="Any" />

I think i found the documentation I need, is this correct?

EPiBetaUsers stuff allows you to access the new Marketing UI, while IFeatureSwitch is actual turning the engine on.

I don't get it, i upgraded to version 9.20, and is seems that my old promotions stopped working.

How do i temporarly go back to legacy system?

How do i know what marketing system is activated?

My Featurelist is empty

var featureSwitch = ServiceLocator.Current.GetInstance<IFeatureSwitch>();
var list = featureSwitch.Features; // list is 0 looks like this

<?xml version="1.0"?>
  <Connection connectionStringName="EcfSqlConnection" />
  <Cache enabled="true" promotionTimeout="0:1:0" campaignTimeout="0:1:0" policyTimeout="0:1:0" segmentTimeout="0:1:0" expressionTimeout="0:1:0" />
    <ExpressionValidatorType name="Mediachase.Commerce.Marketing.Validators.RulesExprValidator,Mediachase.Commerce.Marketing.Validators" />
    <PromotionEntryPopulateFunctionType name="Mediachase.Commerce.Marketing.Validators.PromotionEntryPopulate,Mediachase.Commerce.Marketing.Validators" />
  <Roles />

Hi Gosso,

You can explicitly turn off the new promotion system by this:


Or in (not

<add feature="WorkflowsVNext" state="Disabled" type="Mediachase.Commerce.Core.Features.WorkflowsVNext, Mediachase.Commerce" />

However it's strange. Upgrading site to 9.20 should not change the state of VNextFeature. Did you create a new site?

Allright, it didnt help to disable. Anyhow I got it wrong in our logic. My bad.

We have free shipping for Customer Group "Internal" in legacy system Commerce Manager UI. When i thought it didnt worked i supposed it had to do with the upgrade and not having any Campains in the new Marketing UI.

So still New Marketing system is in beta? And you have to activate it then. OK.

The new marketing system came out of BETA in Commerce 9.19. It is not "finished" - new features and API:s will still be added, but it's now stable enough and no breaking changes should be introduced to the API:s without following sematic versioning rules.

yeah thanks, im missing a "free shipping for specific visitor group" discount (without having to specify an minimum amount spent, since we do have free products). I guess i have to build a custom promo. Regards

Should this method for disabling the feature also remove the Commerce -> Marketing link from the menu?

We need to remove this from the site before a release in case it confuses the editors
