Category ID Conversions in Category Documents for Elastic Path
In the category documents (e.g. starterstoreboot:categorydecorator document nodes), the identifier strings of the associated category data are stored, so that the category picker field may show a proper category title by reading the category data from the Elastic Path backend. In the earlier versions, the identifier values are stored as Base32-like encoded strings. e.g, kzcvgvcsjfpucucqifjektc7jvcu4uy= instead of human-friendly values like VESTRI_APPAREL_MENS.
Since v14.0.0, it stores human-friendly category identifiers instead. For example, VESTRI_APPAREL_MENS instead of kzcvgvcsjfpucucqifjektc7jvcu4uy=. As a result, the URLs of the category related page are more human-friendly as well.
In order to convert the old category identifier field values in existing category documents, navigate to Setup > System > Update Editor and execute the script named "Accelerator - Reset ElasticPath Category Decorator External Resource IDs" once. If no error is reported, the conversion is successful.
