Checkout Pipeline

The checkout pipeline is run after payments has successfully been placed for an order whether it being a credit card payment or an invoice payment type. The checkout pipeline converts the basket into an actual order which includes assigning order numbers, sending confirmation emails, removing the basket state, and making sure the customer is known in your system.

This is a great extension point for when orders are placed, but do remember the customer will wait for every task as this is typically run between accepting payments and sending the customer to the confirmation page. So any long-running tasks like integration to separate systems should most likely run at a later point where the customer is not actually affected by the wait time.

Custom task

If you're interested in creating your own pipeline task, here's a code sample and configuration below for the Checkout pipeline. If you haven't read how to create custom pipeline tasks before, we recommend giving it a read as there's a lot of valuable information covered in the article.

Code sample

    
    
                    using Ucommerce.Pipelines;
                    using Ucommerce.EntitiesV2;
    
                    namespace MyProject.Extensions.Pipelines.Checkout
                    {
                        public class MyCheckoutPipelineTask : Ucommerce.Pipelines.IPipelineTask<Ucommerce.EntitiesV2.PurchaseOrder>
                        {
                            public PipelineExecutionResult Execute(Ucommerce.EntitiesV2.PurchaseOrder subject)
                            {
                                return PipelineExecutionResult.Success;
                            }
                        }
                    }
    

Configuration

    
    
                        <configuration>
    	                    <components>
                                <component id="Checkout.MyCheckoutPipelineTask"
                                           service="Ucommerce.Pipelines.IPipelineTask`1[[Ucommerce.EntitiesV2.PurchaseOrder, Ucommerce]], Ucommerce"
                                           type="MyProject.Extensions.Pipelines.Checkout.MyCheckoutPipelineTask, MyAssembly" />
    
                                <partial-component id="Checkout">
                                    <parameters>
                                        <tasks>
                                            <array>
                                                <value insert="last">${Checkout.MyCheckoutPipelineTask}</value>
                                            </array>
                                        </tasks>
                                    </parameters>
                                </partial-component>
    	                    </components>
                        </configuration>
                    
    

The configuration above just inserts your task as the last task in the pipeline. Mind this line in the configuration above: <value insert="last">${{{pipelineComponentId}.My{pipelineComponentId}PipelineTask}}</value> Additionally you can insert first, or before or after a specific task. Just like the example below You may also use insert="first" insert-before="${Checkout.ValidatePaymentsMadeAgainstOrderTotal}" or insert-after="${Checkout.ValidatePaymentsMadeAgainstOrderTotal}"
