Configuring Store URLs

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Navigate to: Store and Reps > Store > Manage > URLs

Administrators can manage the URL(s) associated with the store through the URLS tab.

Each Store must be associated with a URL, activated under the “Tools” menu, and Published before it is available to the public.

Associating a URL with Store

Navigate to: Stores and Reps > Manage > Store > URLs

The store needs a domain before the customer can access the particular store.


  1. Use the "Add New" button and complete the following details

URL Name

The unique domain name for the store, ex. http://www.znode.com

Application

Define the type of store you're creating as API, Admin, or Webstore.

"Enable this URL" box

Checkbox to enable URL

  1. Save progress using the "Save" button. The page reloads with action confirmation and redirects to the URL Landing Page.

  2. (Optional) Administrators can now use Actions to manage URLs from the URL Landing Page, seen below.

  3. URL has successfully been added

"Edit" action

Edit URL Name & change Application Type

"Clear Cache" action

Clears cache for the entire application.

Enable/Disable

Enable or Disable a URL for specified Store

Delete" action

Delete a domain


Configuring a Store URL that has a WWW prefix

We confirmed the settings remove the ‘www.' from the domain string. This is the base functionality. It detaches the protocol, removes the port number, and removes any trailing "/" and stores the standard URL only.

You can use a rewrite URL like the following

<rule name="RedirectNonWwwToWww" stopProcessing="true">
<match url="(.*)" />
<conditions>
<add input="{HTTP_HOST}" pattern="^ " />
</conditions>
<action type="Redirect" url="" redirectType="Permanent" />
</rule>

In addition,  in order to allow the URLs starting with 'www.' You will have to update that directly from the DB. This DB table is the Domain Table (dbo.ZnodeDomain) and the WebStore is commonly the relevant field

URL Enhancement (Applicable from version 9.6.6.1 except version 9.7)

Administrators now have the flexibility to add the URL with a different valid scheme (i.e. www, only the domain name) apart from http. When a new URL is entered it is saved in the same format and is not replaced with http, this gives Administrators the ability to add the different formats of the URL.

URL’s

When an administrator add the following URLs they are shown exactly as they are added. 

  1. When www.<abc>.<com> is entered 

  2. Visible Url will be - www.<abc>.<com>

  3. When http://<abc>.<com> is entered 

  4. Visible Url will be - http://<abc>.<com>

  5. When https://<abc>.<com> is entered 

  6. Visible Url will be - http://<abc>.<com>

Connection with SSL (Secure Socket Layer) 

The purpose of the SSL is to provide the Web Store the capability to interact with secured web servers using the SSL protocol. The setting is available on the Stores > Store > Manage > General > Security > Enable Secure Socket Layer (SSL) For This Store.

  1. Ex:  if the setting is checked, the URL will be https://abc.com 
  2. When the setting is unchecked the URL will be http://abc.com 

  3. If the URL does not have http or https and has www or just the domain name, no changes are applicable and the URL remains the same.

  4. If the URL is added as https://abc.com and the SSL setting is off then the URL visible on the listing page is http://abc.com
