Sitecore for Visual Studio


Introduction to the Sitecore for Visual Studio item synchronization plugin.

The Sitecore for Visual Studio plugin acts as a graphical user interface for Sitecore Content Serialization. If you want to use Sitecore Visual Studio with XM Cloud, you need to purchase a license for Sitecore TDS and SVS on the Developer Collection website. TDS is not supported for XM Cloud. SVS is not required for development with XM Cloud. You can use the CLI instead.

The plugin provides:

  • Visual configuration of modules and environments.

  • Visual synchronization of items, including conflict handling.

  • Visual configuration of automated item synchronization at build time.
