This guide shows you how to use the Nemesis Backend console. At the end you will understand how to create, edit and delete an entity, as well as what the

|The Nemesis Backend console is data-driven. The results you will see in your navigation depend on the structure of your site. The examples in this tutorial are based on the Nemesis SampleStore (how to start the demo store, learn here|
In the Navigation filter start typing the type of entity you want to create. We are going to create a
widget, so this is how the search-filtration looks like:
Click the "+"-sign next to the entity you want to create a new instance of:
A pop-up window appears to ask you for the exact subtype of the chosen entity you want to create:
After you choose the sub-type and press the
CREATE button, a new window opens. Here you need to enter the information for your new entity. Below is a sample page-information for the
Once you fill in the information you intended to, press the
If you press the
SAVE button, without filling-in all of the required fields, a message, as shown, below appears and prevents you from saving the data you have entered:
When you fill in all of the required fields and press the
SAVE button, a pop-up message appears to indicate the information is saved correctly:
As you notice, at this stage, you have 3 buttons available -
SAVE & CLOSE and
SAVEbutton saves the information for your new entity
SAVE & CLOSEbutton saves the information you have entered and closes the window
CLOSEbutton closes the window without saving any of the information you have entered
After you fill in the information for your entity
and save it.
Then navigate to the
and check your new entity.
In the Navigation filter start typing the type of entity you want to edit. We are going to edit an instance of the
After you choose the entity to edit, click on it (not on the
+-sign as you will enter the create-mode in that way).
The window that opens consists of 2 parts - the search fields (which we’ll discuss later) and the created entity instances so far. Open the instance you want to edit and add the necessary changes. In the example below we’ll edit the entity instance with code
What we want to change is the approval status to
If you are creating a new entity, after you click the 'SAVE' button you will see that 2 more buttons appear, one of them - the
DELETE button and you will see a pop-up window, asking you for confirmation:
If you want to edit an already existing entity, not the one tht you have just created, just navigate to the one, open it, and click the
DELETE button again.
All of the fields with the option to be translated, are marked with this image next to them:
If the translatable field’s content is HTML editable, this is the respective icon:
When you click it, a pop-up window shows you the information entered so far for the entity instance. When you finish entering the translated text in the respective language, click
Do not forget to press the
SAVE button as a last step.
REFRESH button does is to retrieve again all of the entity’s fields from the database.
Let’s look at some sample scenarios:
You need to add a new
variantto an already existing product.
Step 1: Choose the product
Have a look at the created product entities and choose the one you want to add a new variant to. Let’s try with the first product with code
andie-snow-jacket. The catalog this product belongs to is
Variants section shows which the associated with the product variants are.
Step 2: Create a new product variant
Create a new
VariantProductEntity with code
new-blue-jacket and catalog
Variants section choose the base product you want this one to be a variant of. In our example -
andie-snow-jacket - samplestoreB2BProductCatalog:Staged
Save the product variant you have just created.
Step 3: Refresh the product
Go to the variants section of the
andie-snow-jacket product. Click the
REFRESH button. You will see the variant you have just added:
You want to remove a particular variant of a product:
Step 1: Open the variant
Step 2: Delete it and save the changes
Step 3: Open the variants section of the product, click
REFRESHand see that the variant is not there anymore.
Another case when you need the
REFRESHbutton is when you start making some changes to the entity’s information, then decide to check the original record from the database.
For example, you decide to write a new description of a product. You navigate to the translatable
DESCRIPTION field and enter the new text. Then decide to change it to the one in the database. Click the
REFRESH to have the data retrieved and your local changes overridden.
SYNCHRONIZE button is available for some entities only (
product, for instance). The button appears in two cases:
if you start editing an already created entity
SAVEthe new entity that you have created
What it does is to synchronize your catalogs, so that the changes you make in your stage catalog get transferred to the live one.
To find a particular record faster, take advantage of the search options that let you filter the results. When open an entity, the first half of the window is where the
FILTER is located. Based on the type of entity, you have different filtration options. You may search, for example:
by CODE - either by the exact code, or to restrict it
Code restriction is entered,
Code field gets activated.
by NAME and LANGUAGE - either by the exact name, or to restrict it
by the time it was last modified or published, etc.
