Kentico CMS allows you to use in the E-commerce module both site-specific objects available for the respective sites only and global objects shared across all your sites. This approach not only gives you more flexibility but is also highly effective in multi-site environment, e.g. when hosting several e-commerce sites for different customers.
To learn how to allow global data on the given site, please refer to the Enabling the use of global objects topic.
Security matters related to your E-commerce package site separation are described in the Security topic.
In the E-commerce module, there are three groups of objects available for a particular site from the point of view of site separation:
•Objects with both site and global option include objects which can be used either as site-specific or site-specific together with global.
•Objects with only site or global option include objects which can be used only separately, either as site-specific or global.
•Objects with special cases include objects which cannot be put into either of the above groups.
Before you start configuring and using global data in the E-commerce module, you should learn what basic E-commerce module configuration scenarios are available with regard to site separation.
