In this article, I want to share my practical experience implementing a second-level handler in Sitecore Message Bus.
The CI/CD pipeline has become a popular practice among software developers as it automates the creation, testing and integration of applications. Infrastructure engineers were long in need of a similar practice for infrastructure automation, taking into account the growing complexity of IT systems at various enterprises. This is why the GitOps approach came into being.
In this article, I’ll explain to you the principles of GitOps, its connection to DevOps, the benefits of managing infrastructure using this approach, and how to put it into practice.
In this blog post, I will describe how to resolve the issue when your encoded Sitecore License is too big to be placed into the Azure DevOps variable to be consumed by Kubernetes as a secret value. In two words, we will use the Kubernetes persistent volume as an Azure File share.
Sitecore has a great feature — Switch On Rebuild — that supports search index swapping once the rebuilding of the index completes.
In this article, I want to share my experience of implementing this feature in practice.
If you have a custom SOLR index in your Sitecore-based project and it becomes too big (more than 1 million documents), you may face a problem when the rebuild process times out because of the SOLR connection timeout exception. Today, I’ll tell you how we dealt with this issue.
In this blog post, I will tell you how we built a custom Sitecore JSS Snippet component in a project based on Sitecore 9.2 SXA + JSS and explain how it helped solve a client’s requirement.
All members of the Sitecore community must have heard by now of the Sitecore 10 release announced in August 2020.
In this article, I’ll discuss the most prominent improvements and new official features that come with this release and explain the benefits these bring to developers, marketing specialists and customers.
In this blog post, I will describe an issue we had in a project that was based on Sitecore 9.2 SXA + JSS, and explain how we solved the problem.
In one of our Sitecore-based projects, we faced the issue of rendering SVG images.
The thing is that Sitecore JSS doesn’t support the rendering of SVG images as <svg> </svg> elements.
Sometimes, we need to import Sitecore content data in the scope of migration or deploying process. In general, we can use Sitecore Migrations tools (if we need full migration). But if we just need to export content data, we can use Sitecore Package Designer, Unicorn or TDS.
In my case, we needed to migrate dozens of content items (more than 40 000) from Sitecore 7.5 to Sitecore 8.2. And we had only Sitecore Package Designer.
The main issue we faced was the long processing time (a couple of hours) of Sitecore Package Designer. This was the trigger for us to release our Sitecore Data Transfer tool.
