The new Joomla! offers configurable usergroups - allowing you to create new groups with customized permissions. Using this MageBridge Store Connector, you can load a specific Magento Store View or Store for a specific Joomla! usergroups. This is useful to allow for private sales, or vendor-stores, or promotional actions.
When MageBridge contacts Magento, it does so by starting up the Magento application. And whenever the Magento application is started, it is started with a specific Website-scope, Store-scope or Store View-scope. Which Website-scope is selected, is determined normally by your MageBridge Configuration.
But the Store and Store View scopes allow for more dynamic configuration. They can be loaded per page per session differently. The MageBridge Store Plugin provide you with that piece of logic, to allow for a certain Joomla! condition (a specific language, user, period or setting) to load a certain store.
MageBridge Store Plugin can easily be installed in MageBridge using the MageBridge Update Manager. After a plugin is installed, it can be used within the MageBridge Store Relations page in the Joomla! backend.
