Create Sitecore Commerce accounts and groups

In a multi-server deployment, Sitecore Commerce accounts and user groups are created on the domain controller. In a single-server deployment, you can create these accounts and groups on the machine where Sitecore Commerce is installed.

For internal test and development environments, create the same accounts and groups that you create for the data domain in the production environment.

If you are installing the entire solution on a local machine where security is not required, such as a development experience, you can use a local administrator account to perform the installations for both the Sitecore Experience Platform and Sitecore Commerce.
