Commerce Manager


Hello... Please, help me. I have some problems. I want to add a reference to the 'COMMERCE' manager in admin panel. I added to the solution of the project, which has COMMERCE manager. It works and site works ( separately ). But the administration panel, in the category of Commerce, I see only "Catalogs" and "Settings".

I don't know what to do.
Thank you in advance.
P.S. (Sorry for my English)

The Commerce manager menu integration is in EPiServer.Commerce.Shell.ManagerIntegration library. It should be somewhere in bin directory. Do you have it?

I added Commerce Manager to the CMS through Nuget Package and had no problems. Did you do this same way?

Step by step

1. I created project (add to solution with my shop)

Create web ptroject

Choosing template (Empty)

Choosing empty template

Install Episerver.CommerceManager

In Config file, system automaticly choosing my database|(shop data base)

<add name="EPiServerDB" connectionString="Data Source=(LocalDb)\MSSQLLocalDB;AttachDbFilename=C:\Users\Alex\Documents\Visual Studio 2015\TEST\PhoneShop\PhoneShop\App_Data\EPiServerDB_245f2d79.mdf;Initial Catalog=EPiServerDB_245f2d79;Connection Timeout=60;Integrated Security=True;MultipleActiveResultSets=True" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />
<add name="EcfSqlConnection" connectionString="Data Source=(LocalDb)\MSSQLLocalDB;AttachDbFilename=C:\Users\Alex\Documents\Visual Studio 2015\TEST\PhoneShop\PhoneShop\App_Data\EcfSqlConnection_5a171677.mdf;Initial Catalog=EcfSqlConnection_5a171677;Connection Timeout=60;Integrated Security=True;MultipleActiveResultSets=True" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />

As I mentioned, you need to install

I installed this package. No results.

Looking carefully to your steps again, I think you misunderstood something:

- For the front end site, you'll need to install EPiServer.Commerce and EPiServer.Commerce.UI.ManagerIntegration

- For the backend site (Commerce Manager), you'll need to install EPiServer.CommerceManager

- In the web.config of front end site, make sure the you set the url to your Commerce Manager site in appSettings/CommerceManagerLink. If the value for this key is empty then the menu to Commerce Manager will be hidden.

Yes. But not work.

What does not work for you? You followed the instructions in the previous post?

Nov 16, 2015 13:14

Yes. I followed the instructions in the previous post. I don't see link in admin panel.

I just did the steps myself and the menu works fine for me.

The CommerceManagerLink was automatically updated when I install CommerceManager package to second site.



Nov 16, 2015 16:30

No. But I solved problem. 

<add key="CommerceManagerBinPath" value="C:\...\Solution\CommerceManager\Bin\" />
<add key="CommerceManagerSharedPath" value=" C:\...\Solution\CommerceManager \" />
<add key="CommerceManagerApplicationName" value="ECApplication" />
<add key="CommerceManagerLink" value="http://localhost:64590/Apps/Shell/Pages/default.aspx" />

Thank you for your help and patience.
