Allowing you to manage different sites within your shop is a key feature to have a centralised approach to Search among all the different environments and shops that made up your company. This article provides you with some context to better understand Multisite and the management of different Sites within Motive Commerce Search.
Managing Environments and Shops
Multisite was conceived as the perfect feature to allow you to manage your different environments and shops, allowing you to test your Motive Commerce Search configurations and navigate your sites to understand how they affect each of them.
Thanks to Multisite, you can add the different domains that make up your shop(s) and manage them all in Motive Commerce Search from the Playboard. This is especially relevant for cases like test and production environments, allowing you to apply changes to features like Synonyms or Filters and test how they behave in a test environment before you deploy them to your shop in production.
It is also a relevant feature for managing shops with different domains, so if, for instance, you have shops in different countries with different domains, or subsidiaries, you can apply your search configurations to all of them separately.
