Magnolia and Salesforce Commerce Cloud Integration

Elevate the shopping experience by combining the power of Magnolia and Salesforce Commerce Cloud (SFCC). Use the available integration of Magnolia and SFCC to build the progressive web app, thanks to the Salesforce Composable Storefront.

With HA CLI, you can easily start up with a ready-to-use template for an e-commerce app that utilizes this integration.

Jumpstart the project#

Make sure to have the latest version of the HA CLI. Update the current version of the HA CLI if needed.

Salesforce Composable Storefront requires node version:

  • ^18.0.0 or ^20.0.0 for template version 3.x.x.
  • ^14.0.0 for template version 2.x.x.

Create a new empty directory, navigate there, and execute ha jumpstart to jumpstart a new project.


Refer to the Hello Magnolia - HA CLI to read more about creating a new web application.

During the jumpstart, choose to jumpstart a react project. Then select the salesforce-magnolia framework template. Choose the highest version when prompted.

As of April 2024, the highest version of react/salesforce-magnolia project template is 3.0.0.

Salesforce credentials#

HA CLI asks for the information to connect to the SFCC instance during the jumpstart.

Change the credentials to connect to the specific Salesforce sandbox, or use the default values presented during the jumpstart to test the integration of the Salesforce Composable Storefront and Magnolia.

To use the default values press Enter when prompted for SFCC credentials.
