Generating URIs

You will use the Generate URIs functionality when you want to create or update your URI Management Style URLs.


For new stores, URIs are generated for the store owner.

To use the Generate URIs functionality, click the Settings header in the bottom left corner of the admin page, then click URI Management.


On the page that opens, click the URIs tab. Then, on the far right side, click the Generate button.
