Magento Extension Administration Tools

In Admin Tools, you can see any configuration conflicts between any other installed modules, and ensure your files all have the correct permissions to run correctly and securely.

Important: From June 30, 2020 Adobe will not support Magento 1. The Bronto Magento 1 extension will continue to function, but Oracle NetSuite will discontinue updates and client support from June 30, 2020. You can read more about Adobe's end of support plan for Magento 1 here.

Install Status

This section shows you a scoped view of all modules and links to the corresponding configuration pages.

Classpath Inspection

The Classpath Inspection section provides functionality for identifying observers of events and file paths for classes.

Conflict Checker

The Conflict Checker is a helpful tool when you find that something is not working like you expect it to. It will run through the configurations for all installed modules and report any values that are overridden. To start the process, click the Check Module Conflicts button.

Note: This process may take a minute or two to complete, just be patient.

  • Check to see if anything Bronto related pops up.
  • Check to see if any third part integrations are conflicting with Bronto files prior ESPs (Mandrill, SMTP Pro, MageMail).
  • Review Old Value and New Value as a Developer may need to comment out Old Values if conflicts are taking down Bronto functionality.

Permissions Settings

The Permissions Settings section allow you to customize the desired file/folder permissions for your code base. The default settings are based on the Magento recommended values. If, during the Permissions Validation process, you find that your files/folders are not set to the desired permissions, you can use the provided commands to apply the correct permissions to your system.

Permissions Validation

The Permissions Validation section will traverse your Magento installation, check the permissions against those specified in the Permissions Settings section, and display the path of any files/folders that have incorrect permissions.

Note:This process may take a minute or two to complete, just be patient. If you get no response from this process, it means that the request timed out, possibly due to a very large number of incorrect permissions in your system.

Cron Settings

The Cron Settings section is provided as an Advanced Option for handling the Cron processes for the Bronto Extension Modules. If you find that the Magento cron management system fails to trigger the cron processes for these modules, you can utilize the cron.php file provided with this extension.

  1. Go to System > Configuration.
  2. In the left menu, scroll until you see Bronto and click Admin Tools.
  3. Set the Use Magento Cron setting to No for any modules you wish.
  4. Click Save Config.
  5. Follow the Cron configuration details below to set up the external cron.
