Creating history for item

If you want create history for item look like backoffice, you can use below example.

public void updateConsignmentStatus(String userUid, ConsignmentModel consignment, ConsignmentStatus status) {
  Map originals = new HashMap();
  originals.put(ConsignmentModel.STATUS, consignment.getStatus());

  consignment.setStatus(status);

  Map news = new HashMap();
  news.put(ConsignmentModel.STATUS, consignment.getStatus());

  final SavedValues savedValues = JaloConnection.getInstance().logItemModification(consignment.getPk(), news, originals, false);
  savedValues.setUser(UserManager.getInstance().getUserByLogin(userUid));
  modelService.saveAll();
}

Creating,updating or deleting other items in interceptor

public class MyCustomerPrepareInterceptor implements PrepareInterceptor {
  private static final Logger LOG = Logger.getLogger(MyCustomerPrepareInterceptor.class);

  @Override
  public void onPrepare(CustomerModel customerModel, InterceptorContext interceptorContext) throws InterceptorException {

    ...
    final MyItemModel myItem = interceptorContext.getModelService().create(MyItemModel.class);
    interceptorContext.registerElement(myItem);
    //interceptorContext.registerElementFor(myItem, PersistenceOperation.DELETE);
    ...

  }
}

Using separate file for different class logging

Below example logging flexiblesearch class to separate file with time based trigger policy. Also we can add rollover strategy for removing old files.

log4j2.appender.FlexlogAppender.type=RollingFile log4j2.appender.FlexlogAppender.name=FlexlogAppender
log4j2.appender.FlexlogAppender.fileName=${HYBRIS_LOG_DIR}/Flexlog.log
log4j2.appender.FlexlogAppender.filePattern=${HYBRIS_LOG_DIR}/Flexlog.log-%d{yyyy-MM-dd}.log
log4j2.appender.FlexlogAppender.ImmediateFlush=true log4j2.appender.FlexlogAppender.layout.type=PatternLayout
log4j2.appender.FlexlogAppender.layout.pattern=%m%n log4j2.appender.FlexlogAppender.policies.type = Policies
log4j2.appender.FlexlogAppender.policies.time.type = TimeBasedTriggeringPolicy log4j2.appender.FlexlogAppender.policies.time.interval = 1000000
log4j2.appender.FlexlogAppender.policies.time.modulate = true log4j2.logger.flexible.name = de.hybris.platform.jalo.flexiblesearch
log4j2.logger.flexible.level = DEBUG log4j2.logger.flexible.appenderRef.stdout.ref = FlexlogAppender log4j2.logger.flexible.additivity = false

Update object private property with groovy

You can update private field an object with below sample code.

def myBean = spring.getBean("myBean");

def f = myBean.getClass().getDeclaredField("myField");
f.setAccessible(true);
f.set(myBean, "new string value");
