Overriding Customer Data

In order to modify the customer data that is sent to Nosto, you need to create your own mini-module. Please read the basics on how to extend or override data in Nosto extension
For modifying Nosto's customer data you must register hook actionNostoCustomerLoadAfter and the actionNostoOrderLoadAfter and implement corresponding action methods. Below is an example of how your MyNosto class could look like.
File modules/mynosto/mynosto.php
<?php
if (!defined('_PS_VERSION_')) exit;
/**
* Module for overriding Nosto default behavior.
*
* Depends on the "Personalization for PrestaShop" module by Nosto.
*/
class MyNosto extends Module
{
/**
* Constructor.
*
* Defines the module.
*/
public function __construct()
{
$this->name = 'mynosto';
$this->tab = 'advertising_marketing';
$this->version = '0.1.0';
$this->author = 'YourName';
$this->need_instance = 1;
$this->bootstrap = true;
$this->ps_versions_compliancy = array(
'min' => '1.4',
'max' => _PS_VERSION_
);
parent::__construct();
$this->displayName = $this->l('My mini nosto plugin');
$this->description = $this->l('Module for overriding Nosto default behavior');
}
/**
* Module installer.
*
* Registers the event listener for nosto events
*
* @return bool
*/
public function install()
{
return (
parent::install()
&& $this->registerHook('actionNostoCustomerLoadAfter')
&& $this->registerHook('actionNostoOrderLoadAfter')
);
}
public function hookActionNostoCustomerLoadAfter(array $params)
{
/** @var NostoCustomer $nostoCustomer */
$nostoCustomer = $params['nosto_customer'];
//Set marketing permission for the customer, '1' or 'true' means the customer accepts newsletters
$nostoCustomer->setMarketingPermission('1');
}
public function hookactionNostoOrderLoadAfter(array $params)
{
/** @var NostoOrder $nostoOrder */
$nostoOrder = $params['nosto_order'];
//Set marketing permission for the customer, '1' or 'true' means the customer accepts newsletters
if ($nostoOrder->getCustomer() instanceof NostoOrderBuyer) {
$nostoOrder->getCustomer()->setMarketingPermission('1');
}
}
}

Verifying

Once you have overridden the customer model and customised whatever fields you may need, you should verify that it, in fact, working as expected.
A simple way to verify that the changes are working would be to log in as a customer and view any page with the Nosto debug-mode enabled. The debug mode can be enabled by adding the query parameter nostodebug=true to the end of any URL. This will cause a helpful debug toolbar to appear where you can view the tagged data on the page. For more information on the debug-toolbar, please refer to this guide titled Nosto Debug Toolbar in our Support Center.
NOTE: Please note that in order to verify the changes using the debug-toolbar, you must have a Nosto account for the given store.
