Hello everyone,
for writing a successful importer flow, I'm trying to dive deeper into the Spryker implementation.
One question: What is the touch and collector flow about? It seems like an abandoned concept or collaborators in the publish/synchronize process. Do I need to touch my entities or is sending a publish event enough?

Thanks in advance!

    Hi Thomas, yes, you are right. P&S has been introduced a while ago to replace old collectors logic.

    AFAIK you don't need to touch entities any more but have events and listeners instead.

    Ah okay, that means the touch/collector flow was essentially the initial incarnation of Publish/Synchronize where eventing was handled via DB - just like the entity behaviour events... I see!

    Thanks for the explanation.

    If I know\remember correctly, there was spy_touch table from where collectors took needed entities and they were then exported to Redis\ElasticSearch.

    Yes, that's how the code reads. But now all readers have been abandoned.

    Only the writing part is still inside Spryker.

    Hi @UQ958DA4U Touch and Collector are obsolete and not used anymore, they are only kept for BC matters, please check if the writing part is also disabled in your project:
    src/Pyz/Zed/Touch/TouchConfig.php:19

        public function isTouchEnabled(): bool
        {
            return false;
        }
