Importing SFRA Data into an Instance

To view products in Storefront Reference Architecture (SFRA) storefront sites, you import the standard SFRA data. This data includes product information and images.

Uploading and importing SFRA Data

It's safe to import SFRA into an empty Sandbox. However, if you also want to import custom sites, make sure that you import SFRA first before importing the custom sites. By importing SFRA first and then importing your custom site, you ensure that custom attributes for your custom sites are retained if there are conflicts. Your custom attributes overwrite any imported SFRA custom attributes. If the SFRA custom attributes are overwritten, you risk changing the SFRA site’s behavior, but your custom attribute data is retained.

DANGER
Do not import SFRA data into an instance in your Primary Instance Group (PIG).
CAUTION:
If you import SFRA into an instance that contains other customized sites, you risk overwriting existing attributes and losing data.
  1. Zip up the repository data.
    Note: If you are performing this step on a Mac, don't use the Mac OS archive utility. Instead, zip up the repository from the command line. Files compressed using the MacOS archive utility cause errors on import.
  2. Select Administration > Site Development > Site Import & Export.
  3. In the Import section, select Local to upload the site .zip file from your local machine.
  4. Click Browse, select the .zip file you want to upload, and click Open.

    The name of the .zip file appears in the grid.

  5. In the Select column, select the .zip file and click Import.
  6. Salesforce B2C Commerce asks you if you want to import the selected archive. Click OK.
