Magento_SalesRuleStaging module

The Magento_SalesRuleStaging module is a part of the staging functionality in Magento Commerce. It enables you to add sales rule updates to existing store campaigns. In other words, you can add and/or remove sales rules for some period of time. These updates are shown on the campaign dashboard.

Implementation details

  • Rule Name
