Developers include Yaroslav Rogoza(@rogyar), Roman Glushko (@roma-glushko), and Vitalii Boiko (@VitaliyBoyko). Some examples of their work:


  • CMS Page and CMS Block coverage: Developers can query GraphQL for CMS and Page content and get back all necessary data to render the page on storefront or in 3rd party applications.
    Feature: Shopping cart mutations (Empty cart creating, Add simple product to Cart, Coupons)
  • Implemented mutation for empty cart creation by the guest/customer user: Both guest and registered shoppers can add simple products to cart. GraphQL provides a mutation through which the coupons can be added/removed on a shopper's cart in checkout.
    Feature: Extending GraphQL store config


For PWA frontend implementation, Atwix developed a way to extend a list of parameters required to receive settings from Magento Configuration. The feature is Extending Image info in Product data.


Multi Source Inventory
Vitalii Boiko (@VitaliyBoyko) helped the Multi Source Inventory (MSI) project resolve blocker issues which prevented us from starting the first cycle of MSI MLS2 regression testing.

MageSpecialist is a Magento Professional Solution Partner and Magento 2 Trained Partner. It is a dynamic and result-oriented web agency and software house, dedicated to the development of robust, reliable and scalable e-commerce solutions based on Magento and other open-source software. The agency specializes in complex software integration, high-performance hosting, and the management of mission critical projects.


During the last quarter, Riccardo Tempesta (@RicTempesta) (AKA TheRick) from MageSpecialist contributed to many projects and releases for security, Multi Source Inventory (MSI) and others.


Security Suite was released and now available from Magento 2.1, 2.2 and will be part of upcoming 2.3.0 release (installed as Core Bundled Extensions). This suite includes extensions for Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) and Google reCAPTCHA support. 


Multi Source Inventory
Riccardo also provided valuable contributions to MSI Milestone 2 release preparation and launch of the regression testing. One of the highlighted features sets include Mass Actions Tools. These improvements allow merchants to migrate and assign stock for existing and new products. Migration may affect numerous Stock Items and lead to performance degradation. To alleviate potential performance issues, MSI leverages Asynchronous Bulk APIs (developed as another Community Engineering project) to perform asynchronous executions for long-running business operations, while not affecting usability for the Magento Admin user who initiated launch of the operation. Riccardo submitted this corresponding pull request and presented the features in this MSI weekly demo.


The tools include Assign sources (bulk assign sources to selected products), Unassign Sources (bulk remove sources from selected products), and Transfer Inventory to Source (move 100% of product quantities from one source to another).


Riccardo also resolved blocker issues which prevented the team from starting the first cycle of MSI MLS2 regression testing.
