This week, we take a look at Unified Authentication via Account Manager.

What is it?
I should not be so excited about this, but I am. It is the ability to use the same credentials you use to login to Xchange or the Einstein configurator, and use those across your Commerce Cloud instances as well, e.g. Production, Staging and Development.

Why do I care?
It will save a lot of time in the long run to only have one set of credentials to remember for all your instances and Commerce Cloud tooling. The only other login that remains separate is B2C Commerce support.

What do I need to know?
It's coming in release 19.2 which I will discuss more features from in later emails. Users are not automatically migrated so there's a few steps to go through to get it all unified. Reach out if you need a hand once 19.2 goes in (early Feb).
