Configuration Scope

Your Magento installation has the capacity to maintain separate websites, stores, and store views. If your installation has a hierarchy of websites, stores, or views, you can set the scope of a configuration setting to apply to a specific part of the installation. For AdminThe password-protected back office of your store where orders, catalog, content, and configurations are managed. users with restricted access, the list of available areas includes only those where the user has been granted permission.

The Store View control in the upper-left corner of Admin pages determines the scope of the configuration. By default, the scope is set to “All Store Views.” The configuration scope applies to products categories, attributes, customer management settings, and so on. The scope of each item appears in brackets after the field to indicate the range of the setting. If your installation includes multiple websites, stores or views, you should always set the Store View control first to identify where the configuration settings apply.

Store View Control

Any item with the scope of [STORE] can be set differently for each store view. For example, because the scope of the product name and description is [STORE], the fields can have a different value for each language. However, some configuration settings, such as postal code, are [GLOBAL] and have the same setting throughout the system. The [WEBSITE] scope also applies to the entire site, including all store views.
