Procedure/utility to clear out abandoned shopping carts

Has anyone seen or written a utility (report, stored proc, task centre) that deletes abandoned shopping carts? I know this can be manually managed through System Setup > Set up commerce web components > Cart manager, but my client has a large number of stale shopping carts (>1 year old), making that Cart manager page unmanageably long.

It seems like a common problem that's likely already solved. Or maybe it's in 15.2? (I haven't found any evidence of it, but I could be wrong.)

Public users lose images/styling after authentication

Hi Guys,

After we deployed our wcm site, public users lose images and styling on the member home page after they login, while Full Users can see the page as normal.

What could be cause behind it?

user type? roles? groups?

Please guide me.





15.2 SOA with Dues and Billing

Has anyone seen or have any sample code for handling Dues and Billing via SOA?



PayPal User Authentication Failed in IMIS 15 iBOs

Greetings all,

I'm having some difficulties processing a payment using the CPayment.ProcessPayment method for the IBOs on IMIS 15.  Within the desktop IMIS interface, we're not having any trouble processing credticard payments via PayPal (the out-of-the-box payment gateway), but whenever I try to invoke the ProcessPayment method using the IBO's, PayPal comes back with a "User Authentication Failed" message.

Creating content via API

I created a utility that bulk loads content from an Excel spreadsheet into WCM. When I run the code to create a new folder, the folder doesn't always show up on the Manage Content screen.

The code to create the folder is based on this sample code provided by Eric in 2009:

When I inspect the DocumentMain and Hierarchy tables in the database, everything looks exactly the same as folders that I created manually with the WCM tool:

Error registering custom payment gateway

Hi all,

I have a custom payment gateway developed (.dll). I have successfully managed to register this payment gateway on our local development environments, but when attempting to register it on an ASI hosted server, I get the following error:
"RegAsm : error RA0000 : The specified registry key does not exist."

The command I'm using to register the dll is:

regasm.exe "C:\Program Files\ASI\iMIS15\ActiveX\CustomPaymentGatewayPayFlowProExtender.dll" /tlb:CustomPaymentGatewayPayFlowProExtender.tlb /codebase

The CustomPaymentGatewayPayFlowProExtender.dll is the custom gateway, and it also requires use of the eSELECTplus_dotNet_API.dll. I am unable to register either of them.

It appears to have half-registered, as the iMIS Desktop now throws an error saying "The Xtender component for Credit Card Authorization cannot be loaded. Please check your system setup."

Modified Control for Impersonation reset without redirect in Roster Management

Does anyone have code for a modified control to reset Impersonation to the logged in user's account in Roster Management?

The product button titled My Account, turns impersonation off, and returns the user to the personal.aspx page. I have an application where that redirect is disruptive. So I want the same control with either no redirect, or a user configurable redirect.

I got some imput that if I created a control with these in it  it would work, but I am not familiar enough with Control syntax to do the rest.

Page-to-page communication

I have two pages, both with iParts, which need to communicate with each other.  Some of the details I want to communicate are a bit sensitive.  It's not credit cards or other personal info, but it could potentially be used to manipulate the system to gain access to records that shouldn't be seen by the current user.

I know the first page can pass parameters to the second page using the URL, but the security is non-existent.  Even my mother-in-law can manipulate URL params.

Using OAuth with iMIS - Logon with Facebook or twitter

I have been asked by an AE whether it would be possible for us to create a custom login page for iMIS that allowed users to login to iMIS using either their Facebook, google or twitter credentials, 

All these apps now use OAuth 2 - which I have been reading about here  and here

iMIS member login redirect

New here and new to iMIS, but not dev or .net.

Anyhow, I am working on a clients site whereas a user would go to their site (in this case, it is still beta = and if a member, should click on the "member login" in the upper right corner of the site. Once the login info is entered and validated, it should then take the member to the "members only" page (in this case: ). What is happening though is that after a member logs in, it just redirects the member back to the home page, the
