Empower your Employees and Improve Usability

Easily change to align to your branding. Administrators can now configure Themes and Branding in Backoffice and choose to set an organizational theme or allow individual users to select their own theme.  Backoffice provides two themes by default: SAP Quartz Light and SAP Quartz Dark.  Administrators can further create up to 10 additional custom themes (based on one of the two default themes).  Additionally, Administrators can replace the default SAP Logo with an image of their own choice in the login page and shell bar.

Manage product efficiently and rely on accurate product data. The Compare View in the Backoffice Framework has been enhanced, allowing users to modify the compared items through dragging the attribute of an item and dropping it to the relevant field of another item.

Users may now directly send feedback about their Backoffice experience to SAP via a new Feedback button in the top system bar, to help SAP continue to enhance the product:

Future-Proofing your Business with Secure Data and Processes

When creating or editing user profiles, Environment Permissions in Commerce Cloud can be upgraded from a subscription-based model to a more flexible environment-based model access to separate access for specific environments (e.g., development and production).  By defining and restricting access for certain users, and introducing 2-factor authentication, you can increase security further.

For customers that invested in their own privately hosted infrastructure or have higher security requirements than using a secured publicly available Git repository, Private Git Support allows you to connect your private code repository to SAP Commerce Cloud for added security to protect you from external threats and risks.

Major framework and library upgrades, including Java, Mockito, Groovy, allow for enhanced security, improved maintainability/support, and new feature/language/syntax capabilities.
