Store your sandbox instances
Demandware with ease allows you to keep all of your sandbox instances in a single place.This allows you to use the following options for each of them.
- Keep BM Session Alive - this option will make your session never expire after the 15 minutes period in Business Manager.
- Login in BM automatically - this option will automatically log-in Business Manager whenever the login screen pops up.
There are a few shortcuts when you hover over the saved configuration.From there you can:
- Open the sandbox Business Manager directly from the options.
- Edit the selected sandbox instance.
- Add Alias button, will expand the sandbox configuration with additional field, which will mimic the behaviour and functionalities of your main sandbox configuration.
- Keep BM Session Alive will make your session never expire after the 15 minutes period in Business Manager.

Please Note: Exporting your sandboxes trough the options menu does NOT export your passwords with it. You should configure them manually again when you import the configurations elsewhere.
