It doesn't appear that the Basket.ExtendedFields collection is copied to the Order object during checkout. Or am I missing something somewhere?

Digging deeper, it doesn't seem that the CustomFieldsManager class even works. There's an internal void Save() method, but none of the other methods ever call it. And since it's internal, I can't call it outside of the class.

I don't see any way to persist anything stored to the ExtendedFields object model on any entities that have it.

You need to call the save on the parent entity. For example the call the save on Basket, when you add something to basket extended fields.

We have unit tests in place for persistence check, and those are working fine. So I think there is no issue with the saving or retrieving data for ExtendedFields.
Thanks for your support!

The Basket.ExtendedFields collection values do not seems to be copied to order object.

Please try using the BasketItem.CustomFields, if it suits you.

Thanks I will try it with calling Save() on the parent entity. I didn't see how that was going to trigger since CustomFieldsManager has it's own internal save.

Unfortunately the custom value I need to store isn't specific to a particular line item. And basket line items are unpredictable especially if someone moves through checkout and then returns to the store. Ultimately I switched to a session variable which seems to work well enough for now.

ExtendedFields (CustomFieldsManager) is not well-suited for the basket object given the values will not persist in certain scenarios.
