Warning

THIS ACTION CANNOT BE CANCELLED, UNDONE, OR REVERTED!

  1. Manually update the contents in your Staging store as needed.
  2. Fully test your Shogun Frontend store before publishing. We offer three tools for this:
    • eXperience Manager Live Preview
    • Preview URL
    • Build errors

🚧

Due to the highly interconnected nature of Shogun Frontend data, a missing or changed piece of data between stores will likely lead to a build error or production bug after you conduct a Full Store Sync. This scenario is most likely when you have distinct ecommerce backends and will require manual reconfiguration of multiple parts of your Shogun Frontend store.


International Stores

  • Brands makers investing in a global online presence.
  • Brands selling a similar product catalog in multiple languages and currencies.
  • Technical team members seeking to reuse an existing Shogun Frontend store as the foundation for regional stores.
  • Full Store Sync should only be used as the mechanism to run the initial copy of your flagship international store to create your regional stores. Beyond that point, Full Store Sync should not be used as it will overwrite the entire store. Customers can use the GitHub Integration and manual migration to transfer updates between stores—until we launch Selective Sync.
