Kentico CMS allows you to use in your on-line store 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 solution, 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. Further details can be found in the Site and global data topic.
•Objects with only site or global option include objects which can be used only separately, either as site-specific or global. Further details can be found in the Site and global configuration topic.
•Objects with special cases include objects which cannot be put into either of the above groups. Further details can be found in the Special cases topic.
Before you start configuring and using global data in your on-line store, you should learn what basic E-commerce solution configuration scenarios are available with regard to site separation.
