SDK environment setup

Describes how to set up the Optimizely Configured Commerce SDK

See the SDK release notes section to learn about current versions and features.

Configure Optimizely NuGet source in Visual Studio

NuGet packages are available on, which does not require authentication.

  1. Go to Visual Studio > Tools > Options > NuGet Package Manager > Package Sources.
  2. Click Add:
    1. Name – Configured Commerce
    2. Source
  3. Restore packages.

Configure the local environment

Open Visual Studio and rebuild the solution.

For SQL, follow these steps:

  1. Create a database within sql server
  2. Run ./database/Insite.Commerce.StartingDatabase.sql against the database.
  3. Optionally run ./database/Insite.Commerce.SampleData.sql against the database.
  4. Update ./src/InsiteCommerce.Web/config/connectionStrings.config so it can connect to your new database.
    connectionStrings.default.config is copied to connectionStrings.config during a build. If you skipped step 1, you can copy the file manually.

For IIS, follow these steps:

  1. Add a new site to IIS, pointing to ./src/InsiteCommerce.Web.
  2. Set up bindings:
    1. For simple setups, using a non-standard port like 8080 is fine. The site can then be accessed at http://localhost:8080.
    2. If dealing with multiple projects, it can help to have them setup with hostnames on port 80:
      This requires entries in c:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts:



      https is not required.

Once finished with either set of steps, log in to /admin with the following credentials:
user – admin
password – admin123
