SuiteCommerce Web Stores

The Extension Manager lets you activate any theme or extension for a domain linked to your SuiteCommerce site. With it, you can create new or edit existing activations.

An activation is the association in NetSuite between a domain and any theme or extensions currently activated for that domain. You can activate any number of extensions for a domain, but you must choose a theme at a minimum.

Important

All sites implementing SuiteCommerce or the Aconcagua release of SuiteCommerce Advanced require activating a theme using the Manage Extensions Wizard.


Note

Themes and extensions must either be installed as published SuiteApps or deployed to your NetSuite account by a site developer to be available for activation.


Before You Begin

Be aware of the following important information:

  • The Extension Manager comes with the SuiteCommerce Extension Management SuiteApp. See Install Your SuiteCommerce Application for information on this SuiteApp and the Bundle ID.

  • You must have a published theme or extension installed in your account or have deployed a custom theme or extension for it to appear in the Manage Extension wizard.

  • You must activate at least a theme when using the Extension Manager. You can activate only one theme per domain, but you can activate the same theme across multiple domains.

  • Extensions are optional, but you can activate multiple extensions per domain.

  • If activating an extension on a SuiteCommerce InStore (SCIS) domain, you must choose a site, domain, location, and subsidiary. Location and subsidiary are not required for SuiteCommerce sites. In these cases, the system defaults locations and subsidiaries to All.

  • The Extension Manager can only process one activation at a time.

The following steps explain how to activate themes and extensions:
