The Properties are also not showing for the Property definitions but are present in the available properties of Product definitions.

  • It to me like connection SQL Server from commerce webservices. Are you sure it is properly configured? Jun 29, 2018 at 12:15

  • @PeterProchazka yes it is properly configured and it was working fine but the issue started when executing a Job and after that this is broken. The error I see mainly is as below: INFO CUpdateJob > Updating of the inventory catalog with information about materials > Started. ERROR Failed to get the dependent catalogs. Exception: CommerceServer.Core.Catalog.CatalogDatabaseException Message: Failed to get the dependent catalogs. Source: CommerceServer.Core.CatalogServer

I have figured out the cause of the issue and have a fix, rather a work around to get rid of the error and have my Commerce Server up and running for edit. The issue was the database got corrupted with invalid data. So I did a restore of the Commerce database and after that the error message got removed.
