3. Our organisation is moving to Hyperforce does this impact our custom domain?

Yes, there is a known issue where having a custom domain using your own certificate and CDN.

To check, go to setup and search for "Domains". For the domains where the certificate is entered, if these are hosted on the Salesforce Cloud, there can be an issue moving to Hyperforce. In this instance, the migration would be blocked. Furthermore, salesforce generally will not select you for migration to Hyperforce if they believe there will be an issue. This is one of the criteria they look at.

4. Enabling Salesforce Enhanced Domains?

Salesforce has delayed the timeframe for the deployment of enhanced domains rollout.  Note, the seasons mentioned are Northern Hemisphere.

From Salesforce notifications:

To ensure customers have adequate time to prepare, test, and make necessary adjustments for enhanced domains, the deployment timeline for this feature changed. The new timeline is as follows:

  • Spring ’23: Enhanced domains deployed in all orgs that don’t have enhanced domains deployed, with options to opt-out & disable the feature.
  • Summer ’23: Enhanced domains deployed in all orgs that don’t have enhanced domains deployed, with an option to disable the feature.
  • Winter ’24: Enhanced domains enforced in all orgs.

For additional timeline details, see Enhanced Domains Timeline in Salesforce Help.

At this point in time, our recommendation is to hold off enabling this option.

Whilst we are not aware of any current issues, we need to go through and do some thorough checks.  This section will be updated as progress is made.

Actions Required after enabling Enhanced Domains:

  • NOTE: These are actions known to date.  We are still reviewing an more may be required.
  • The Base Site URL on all Merchant Facilities will need to be updated.
  • You should update your website where forms are iframed in to to have the updated Base Site URL.

Undergoing tests / checking

  • PayPal payment method
  • Windcave - PxPay
  • DataTrans as payment gateway method

Known Issues

  • Create Samples does not assign the correct Base Site URL on DEMO FACILITY.  This is addressed in 9.2 (release now available for install from the AppExchange)
  • Failure to update Base Site URL will cause PayPal to stop functioning.  Symptons of this issue is when pressing the PayPal payment method button, the PayPal login screen flashes up, then disappears.
  • Might show the redirection with "CORS Error Access-Control-Allow-Origin"
  • If using custom CSS and with your specific Fonts then the static resource CSS will need to be updated to use the new force.com - Sites Base URL.

Recommended Updates

Webhook reset if you are using:

 

We are currently testing this in multiple environments and hope to have this section finalised by end of December 2022.

5. End of life Workflow notification / Migration from Workflow/Process Builder to Flow

Salesforce have announced the retirement of Workflows and Process Builder.

Organisations with Workflows/Process Builders will still be able to use and edit these for a little while, but cannot add new ones.

Payments2Us will migrate Workflows to Flows over the coming releases.  Keep an eye out on this FAQ for updates.

NOTE: You cannot use the migration wizard to migrate the standard Payments2Us Managed Package Items.  We need to do this as part of a release update.
