VirtoCommerce JavaScript Services (JSS) support 

Please note that only Server-side JSS components are supported by VirtoCommerce Support. Client-side JavaScript JSS components are open source, and therefore not supported by VirtoCommerce Support.  

Also, considering JSS framework flexibility and customization options, it is important to draw the line between VirtoCommerce-produced parts and the custom parts of the solutions that were built using JSS. Having said that, we support only scenarios that can be reproduced using the basic JSS project (produced by JSS CLI) and a clean VirtoCommerce instance with installed JSS package. 

Supported Products and Support Lifecycle

VirtoCommerce utilizes three support phases as part of the VirtoCommerce Support Lifecycle applicable to all commercial VirtoCommerce products: 

Mainstream Support Phase 

The latest products or product versions are eligible for the full scope of VirtoCommerce Support services provided by VirtoCommerce. 

Extended Support Phase 

Older products or product versions that are no longer eligible to be Mainstream Support products. VirtoCommerce will assist its customers with migration to a newer version of the product before it goes into Extended Support. However, as this is not always possible, VirtoCommerce provides Extended Support to ensure your VirtoCommerce products remain secure and supported in case of production issues. 

Sustaining Support Phase 

These are products or product versions that are no longer eligible to be Extended Support products. In rare situations when customers are not able to migrate to the latest product versions before the products are no longer eligible to be Extended Support products, VirtoCommerce may provide Sustaining Support as a stop-gap solution for getting limited assistance with production issues and access to online documentation. 

Up-to-date details of which versions of a particular product are in support can be found at any time here.
