Automatic Redrect on Site Change! -Shows a notification popup in the top right corner @ Business Manager, asking you if you want to be redirected to the same page as you were before, but in the new selected site. The feature is tested with most of the pages, but it might still have some corner cases which are not handled correctly.

For included pages you will be automatically redirected even if 'Ask before redirection' option is enabled.

  • (2019-04-05) Felipe Spengler: I love this extension, it's very useful. But the decision to split the SB's groups into tabs on version 2.0 and not giving us an option to keep it as one single list is bad UX. Now I need to do unnecessary clicks to access the other groups, or I'll just ditch groups all together. Please add an option to show SB's as a single list instead of using tabs.

  • (2020-09-15, v:2.12.2) Yogini Rastogi: Login with Account Manager still does not work
    Hello, I see some questions related to Account Manager from few months ago but it still does not work. When will the automatic login with Account Manager work?
  • (2020-09-11, v:2.12.2) Kat Park: Can't no longer log in to WebDAV directly through DWithEase
    I log in to BM through DWE and was able to click through to all the catalog and library repositories without having to reauthenticate. Now, when I click on the library link, it asks for authentication and my Account Manager/BM credentials don't work. The error message says: "This request requires HTTP authentication." Can this be addressed?
  • (2020-08-27, v:2.12.0) Amit: Plugin not Keeping BM session alive
    The main purpose of this plugin was to keep BM session alive so that it does not logout automatically and this plugin is not doing this job at all for unified login enabled sandbox. Sandbox gets logged out in 5-10 minutes as usual and i have to login again and again and its quite frustrating, can't understand why SFCC has kept such a short time span of BM session and on top of that this plugin is also not working what it supposed to do i.e kepp the session alive. Would request to fix the problem, that will be of great help.
  • (2020-08-25, v:2.12.0) Mac Ganoo: 20.9 has changed Development Setup interface
    20.9 has changed Development Setup interface so logs are no longer at the same place so Log tool you have is no longer working. It is fantastic tool that helps to see the log nicely rather than just text.
  • (2020-08-21, v:2.12.0) Pascal Donauer: Can't scroll to the bottom

  • (2020-07-15, v:2.12.0) Jorge Matos: Version 2020.6.15.1336 Issue with Edit and Save on Sandboxes
    Hi, I noticed with this new version that the popups related to editing a sandbox do not appear or disappear unless you move the mouse cursor away from the "Edit" or "Save" buttons. This is a minor thing but thought I should report it. I'm using Chrome Version 83.0.4103.116 (Official Build) (64-bit) on MAC Catalina 10.15.4 Jorge P.S. You guys rock!
  • (2020-07-15, v:2.12.0) Eric Lehmann: Can't type @ on Mac OS
    The extension blocks typing the @-Symbol because you prevented the default behaviour to include a shortcut for locking and unlocking content assets. I am not able to properly type email addresses in the Business Manager. Can you change it to Alt+Shift+L?

  • (2020-06-19, v:2.10.0) Christopher Silvey: Login Via Account Manager
    As you know, SFCC now prefers the SFCC account linked with Account Manager. Will you be making the automatic login feature work with this new login process anytime soon?

  • (2020-06-02, v:2.10.0) Ede Somogyi: Getting a blank page very often in BM after clicking a menu item
    Hello there, I'd like to report a proplem. In Business Manager, after clicking a menu item, I very often get a blank page instead of the requested page. I investigated a bit and found that it is from your bm_init.css file, the "opacity" property on "body" remains 0 (I would assume that some JS should change its value to 1, but that often doesn't happen). Please look into it and/or remove the CSS rule if not needed. Thank you!
  • (2020-04-30, v:2.10.0) Melvin Chu: DW With Ease will not display custom preferences, campaigns anymore
    Hi. Starting yesterday, I cannot get any custom preferences or campaigns to display anymore - it just shows a blank screen. I've cleared cookies/cache multiple times. I believe it's related to DW with Ease - on an Incognito mode browser or with DW with Ease turned off, I can see it. Has anything changed lately that may have broken that? Thanks
  • (2020-03-30, v:2.10.0) Doom Over Kiev: Sandbox on demand
    Typical SF sandbox has site address like dw.demandware.net, recently i've started to work on new type of SF aka sandbox on demand and their address is commercecloud.salesforce.com, thus it's impossible to add it to extension, it says: please enter valid site address. Do you have plans to add support of this new type of sandbox as well?
  • (2020-02-25, v:2.9.0) Giacomo Jack: new account manager login form
    The new Account Manager "2 step" login (first insert email, click "LOG IN", then it is possible to insert password) is not managed by d with ease. Please update the plugin, thank you very much
  • (2020-02-22, v:2.9.0) Jake Wilson: Support storefront passwords for multi-site sandboxes
    In some cases you can have multiple sites configured on a single sandbox. And in SFCC you can set the storefront password per site. But DemandwareWithEase only supports a single storefront password per sandbox. So if you are switching back and forth between site storefronts often, you have to manually enter the storefront password for them over and over.
  • (2019-12-23, v:2.8.0) Robert Engel: Make your extension available in the new Edge Browser
    Would it be possible to make this great extension available on the Edge Chromium Browser? As it uses the same engine as chrome it should be possible with minimal changes I hope? The new extension store for Edge is now open for submissions
  • (2019-12-05, v:2.8.0) Jorge Matos: Custom Object Search
    I like that the new search feature allows you to search for Order, Customer, Product or Content - is there a way we can incorporate search for Custom Object into this? I'm not sure if it would be simple to do since custom objects are "custom" in that they can have any attributes you define on them. I just find the current Custom Object Editor's search feature to be cumbersome to use since I have to always select the custom object and that incurs a page reload, then I need to select the custom attribute I want to search for and that produces a 2nd page reload. I think to make it easier one idea would be to have a configuration in DWithEase where you can specify a specific custom object type or list of custom object types that you want to search through (along with the custom attribute IDs you search with frequently from that custom object type) and have that presented in the new search box so that you can select that specific custom object type and the custom attribute and then the search can be done. Another idea similar to the above would be to enhance the Custom Object Editor page so that it pre-selects the custom object type from DWIthEase configuration so that you at least avoid having to set the custom object type and you can instead go directly to the advanced search - or you can make it so that the custom object advanced search is what you get presented with if you specify that in the DWithEase configuration. This way when you go the Custom Object Editor page you are ready to search for the custom object type you use most often. Another idea (is this too many?) is to add the Custom Object Editor search as a new feature in the DWithEase menu bar similar to the "Cache", "Search Indexes", etc... This would speed up the job of searching for custom objects! Thanks again! DWithEase! DWithEase! DWithEase!
  • (2019-11-27, v:2.8.0) Kai Ohlthaver: email recognition in search
    Hi, would it be possible for the new search input field to detect by regex if an email address was entered and then in case of a customer search, do an advanced search by email directly (instead of a default search which would not find anything)? That would be awesome :-)
  • (2019-11-27, v:2.8.0) Giacomo Jack: dwithease global search
    nice feature but it takes the keyboard focus every time a business manager page is loaded. Not nice since it takes the focus after a second or two, meanwhile it is possible that I already started writing or using the keyboard for other actions.
  • (2019-11-20, v:2.7.0) Painted: System Object Custom Attribute Groupings within Development Business Manager
    Hello. The functionality re-added to development environment business manager to create and configure system object custom attribute groupings does not appear to be working anymore. [Example: Administration > Site Development > System Object Types > Catalog Category - Attribute Groups] The add attribute grouping menu is still shown, but no new attribute grouping id is accepted as unique. The menu to add attributes to an existing grouping is no longer shown. I was able to use this functionality a couple months ago. I suspect it was broken recently by some change that demandware pushed.
  • (2019-10-20, v:2.7.0) Davide Bellemo: List of files in webdav not complete
    Hi, there's often a problem of displaying a list of files in webdav. It happens that the entire list is not shown, for example the list of cartridges is incomplete, while if you deactivate the plugin you can see all of them. A couple of versions do not exist this kind of problem, I hope it will be solved, thanks.

    Related to the issues below regarding the .log files not displaying, I noticed that if the "Beautify .log files" option is set to "none", the log file won't show at all. When setting to "colorize" or "beautify", the log appears.

    Hi guys, right now when you using this plugin on WebDev pages it is hide a log of directories. For example https://prnt.sc/pgrsms webdev dir with disabled plugin. The same dir with plugin - https://prnt.sc/pgrt08 Thanks, Nick.
