Are you wondering why this error occurred while registering user?

You may come across this error when the engine is trying to create a customer in Commerce and the domain you have created for Storefront is not available in Commerce. The customer in commerce are mapped to the domain and if the domain is not found or matched with what is configured in Storefront this error will come.

Follow steps below to make this work-

  • Open PlugIn.Habitat.CommerceAuthoring-1.0.0.json and find the CustomerPropertiesPolicy
  • You may see the list of Domains default been Storefront, extranet and CommerceUsers
  • Add the domain you have configured in your storefront in this list e.g.:- HabitatStorefront
  • Add the same domain to PlugIn.Habitat.CommerceShops-1.0.0.json
  • Ensure the domain is created and mapped in the Storefront correctly
  • Bootstrap Habitat Environment using Postman and now you should see the domain in the list whilst creating a customer

You should now able to see the domain in the list whilst creating a customer in business tool

Should also allow to create a customer with the new domain-

Hope this helps.
