Change Store View Name - Will I break anything?

Hello,

 

Does anyone know if I will "break" anything in Magento 2 if I change the Store View Name in an existing store?

 

We have mutiple stores and the Store View Name on all is "English".  I want to change this to the name of the actual store.  Just curious to know whether that field is 'tied' to other things that will break.

if you are using Magento Cloud try creating a snapshot. 

so just in case any issues you can always restore to that point. 

for all other hostings, you can have a DB backup. 

 

updating store name won't impact much if you don't have any URL Structure dependent on that. 

like, include store code in URLs.

it may take some time to process the store_code Update. 

& if you are just updating the names they are just like labels.

Hi @JAD1757 

 

If you only want to change the Store view name then it will not impact anything on your magento store as maximum things are linked with store_code instead of store names.

 

But still i would suggest if you are planning to do such things then take db backup before doing that so that you can restore everything if any mess is created.

 

Thank you.
