Project Description

Looking for Magento Expert to assist with finalization of a custom module. Must have experience working with Magento indexer and event / observer model.

Our module involves setting prices and special prices for large catalogs and managing price templates. You will be needed to assist in completing this module by one of the following methods:

Observer / Event method with Custom Indexer


Override Mage_CatalogIndex_Model_Price

Custom Indexer must accomplish:

 Event / observer functions:

Register products on events: CatalogProductSave, CatalogProductMassAction, CatalogProductAdapter, CatalogProductDelete

When any of the following attributes are changed: cost, msrp, price, special_price

 Custom indexer model to process product pricing (preferably using direct SQL):

+ Update store prices and special prices for products based on price rule

+ Update catalog indexed price and special price data

+ Possibly disable Magento's “price indexer” and use custom price indexer instead

Magento expert is needed to build proper working indexer model that will accomplish the goals above in a method that works for very large catalogs. I have attempted to do this while saving each product for each store view, however that method often takes way too long (can take days), as well as runs into memory leak problems. Looking for someone who can do this with direct SQL to replicate and / or replace the Magento's pricing indexer.

You will work on a test environment setup on our server, you must not modify any core magento files, write professional code and follow common programming practices. Your work will be tested on our large catalog of 70,000 products to ensure its successful completion.
