This guide elaborates how the data handling works between extensions and the Shopware administration.

What are datasets?

Datasets consist of a unique identifier, an id and some data which could be anything from a single value to a whole entity. The id gives some insight on what to expect as the value. For example sw-product-detail__product contains the product of the product detail page.

How to find available datasets

You can explore all available datasets with the Vue Devtool extension we provide with the Shopware administration.

  • Open the Vue DevTools in the Shopware Administration
  • Change to the Shopware Extension API inspector

In this inspector you will see all published datasets if there are any in the current view.
