New Magento Glossary is live!

Adobe Team

The Magento DevDocs team has released a brand-new version of the Magento Glossary! The super slick and vastly improved Glossary utilizes enhanced search functionality, an improved user experience, bundled terms based on subject matter, and a simplified interface to surface glossary terms in a snap.


Enter a term in the top search field to quickly find terms, and see other related terms---like “OMS”, “Order Management”, and “MOM”---in a real-time list.

Click into a Glossary term to see the definition, applicable links out to documentation, and other related keyword terms. Get the full picture of a Glossary term to clear up any confusion or knowledge gaps and ensure we’re all speaking the same language---the language of Magento!

Add Glossary terms


The Magento Glossary is also open for your contributions! Magento Community Engineering tracks points for Glossary contributions in the Glossary repo just as they do for any other doc contribution, so you can really rack up those much sought after points while adding even more value to the existing set of Glossary terms. 


The Glossary repo has a Wiki, which includes instructions for contributing, as well a template to help you get started.  


We are especially keen to add terms for: 

  • MSI 
  • MBI 
  • MFTF 
  • OMS 
  • Cloud 
  • Google Shopping ads Channel 
  • Amazon Sales Channel 

Another way you can contribute to the Glossary is by helping us link to relevant documentation from existing terms, so that users can dig deeper within the Magento lexicon and follow the trail of linked terms to learn even more about the nomenclature of each. 


Use your knowledge to help others understand the wide world of Magento even better! 


Submit feature suggestions


The DevDocs team is open to suggestions for future Glossary features, such as a roadmap or tooltips (tooltips visible upon hover are in the works). Open a PR or issue in the Glossary repo to communicate your suggestions. 


If you have questions, comments, or other feedback about the Glossary, start a conversation with us in the#devdocs channel.
