Miva 10.07.00 Release Notes

10.07.00 Resources (Release Date: 6/13/2023)

New Features & Improvements

Branch Isolation Improvements

Improvements have been made to Template Branches and their content to ensure all resources are branch specific . This makes it easier and safer to leverage template branches for development and staging of website changes. These changes include:

  • Tracking & Versioning of Local File CSS and JavaScript Resources
  • Flex Components are now versioned
  • New Managed CSS/JS Resources for modules
  • Applying Frameworks to a branch will no longer impact production CSS/JS files

Click the following links for additional information on Template Branches, or using Template Branches with PageBuilder.

Support for level 2 & 3 payment data in CyberSource, Authorize.Net & Braintree
  • Level 2/3 data included data such as item level and tax/purchase order data
  • Visa/Mastercard will give merchants discounts on interchange fees for passing this data on certain transactions, lowering overall interchange fees
  • To learn more about Miva and Level 2/3 Payments, contact our Payments Team at
New Checkout APIs which allow Bill To and Ship To fields to be separated on different checkout pages
  • New JSON runtime functions to give developers the ability to collect and submit bill to and ship to fields independently and on different pages if desired
  • These APIs allow for a more flexible checkout experience
  • Runtime functions to initiate checkout and validate addresses
New Admin Forgot Password & 2-Factor Authentication Reset
  • Admin users can now reset their password via a forgot password link which will email them a way to reset their Miva admin password. For additional information click here.
  • Administrators can now force another admin user's 2-factor authentication to be reset. This will force them to set it up upon next login. For additional information click here.
  • Streamlined ability to create administrator user from the add user screen
JSON API Changes

Newly Available API Functions:

AvaTax Discount Handling Improvements

Previously, item and basket discounts were sent to AvaTax as a single summed total and AvaTax evenly distributed the discounts across all items. This caused incorrect taxes in some cases to be charged. Moving forward the logic has been modified to the following:

  • If an item has been discounted, we send the final discounted price to AvaTax.
  • Basket level charges are grouped together and sent as a single discount which is then evenly distributed by AvaTax to all items.

For additional information on AvaTax, click here.

Additional Features
  • Shipping method rules subtotal restriction now includes DISCOUNT charges in its subtotal calculation
  • New tools which allow for In-Admin Help & Guides to assist new users on how to use Miva features.
  • MivaSQL will no longer be supported as the Primary Database. It may still be used as the secondary key storage database and by 3rd party developers.
  • Sales Commission Report: Added option to split output by order source.
  • Apple Pay now has a Currency and Country configuration at the module level.
  • SVG and ICO file formats have been added to the default URI Management rules in .htaccess so these file types bypass URI Management like other image types.
  • Upon login Miva will now force encryption of merchdb.dat if credentials are not encrypted.
  • Existing Google Analytics module has been deprecated and now replaced with Google Analytics 4 integration via template code.
  • Added additional columns to the Transactions tab in Order Processing that will show an order payment's Currency, Environment, and Transaction Level.

Shadows New Features & Improvements

Google Analytics 4 Integration
  • Universal Analytics is being marked as end of life on July 1, 2023. All customers who use Google Analytics need to move to the new Google Analytics 4 before then.
  • Shadows now natively supports Google Analytics 4 via Google Tag Manager.
  • For existing stores using Google Analytics, migration docs will be provided to allow for an easy migration.
