How to copy or move a SuiteCommerce Configuration Record 

by Caleb Schmitz in , August 10th, 2022

(Between sites, domains, and environments)

The SuiteCommerce Configuration Record is a record type that is tied to a specific site-domain pair. It's a powerful tool for customizing your SuiteCommerce site and its extensions to best serve your customer's needs. However, it can be time-consuming and cumbersome to manually copy all of one site-domain pair's SuiteCommerce configuration record's settings for a different site-domain pair: whether that be in the same environment, or a different environment.

Fortunately, there's a faster way to copy these SuiteCommerce or SuiteCommerce Advanced configuration settings!

Copying SuiteCommerce Configuration Settings

Step 1: Ensure that the site-domain pair you are copying from and into have the same themes and extensions activated.

Step 2: Navigate to the following location in the NetSuite environment you are copying from: Customization > Lists, Records & Fields > Record Types

Step 3: Navigate to SC Configuration (do not click on “SC Configuration”)

Step 4: Click on “LIST” on the SC Configuration row (column on the far-right side of the screen)

Step 5: Click “edit” next to the configuration record you want to copy (it will have a configuration ID containing the name of the domain you wish to copy)

Step 6: Copy the value in the “CONFIGURATION JSON” field.

Step 7: Paste the JSON value into the "CONFIGURATION JSON" field of the record you are copying into.

Perform Steps 3-7 for the site-domain-environment you want to copy into.

Step 8: Save the record.

Step 9: Open the SC Configuration record normally (via Commerce > Websites > Configuration) to validate that your information was copied over correctly.
