Demandware with ease: Sandbox Configurations

Demandware with ease is a Browser extension, intended to ease your use of the Salesforce Commerce Cloud B2C platform, and a tool, which aims to eliminate the repetitive boring actions that you have to do daily.

After installing the extension, whenever you visit a sandbox for the first time, you will receive a notification to help you save that sandbox in your configurations. The extension was initially intended to work with sandbox configurations, allowing you to easily perform specific actions, like Automatic login in Business Manager, Context Menu, or any quick link to a specific place, tied to your domain.

  • Sandbox Group – allows you to group up your sandboxes, very handy when working on multiple projects, or if you want to separate your PIG instances
  • Sandbox Name – you can name the configuration whatever you like, this field is not involved in any functionality
  • Username – your specific sandbox username (used for Automatic Login)
  • Password (optional) – Unlocks functionalities that require the extension to authenticate you
  • Storefront password (optional) – Automatically authenticates you when you visit the Storefront
  • Domain – your sandbox specific domain, used to construct quick links in Context Menu functionality.
  • Aliases – allows you to add aliases to your configuration. All entered aliases domains will be treated as the main sandbox configuration.
  • Keep BM Session Alive (on/off) – indicate if you want to keep the session alive for this sandbox configuration
  • Automatic Login In Business Manager (on/off) – automatically login you in Business Manager, if the login form is present, and the configuration has a password provided

When you are done saving your first sandbox configuration, it will instantly become available to use through the options page as well the extension popup. The popup will additionally provide you with some quick links to XChange or Documentation, as well a link to options page & a quick way to add a new sandbox. Both options page and popup give you a quick link to open the Business Manager for the specific configuration domain.
