On the Admin menu, select System > Configuration. Then in the panel on the left under Customers, select Promotions. But I can't see any Auto Generated Specific Coupon Codes section there as described in http://docs.magento.com/m1/ce/user_guide/marketing/price-rules-shopping-cart-coupon-code-autogenerate.html

What might be the cause for this?

( Although I went through Magento documents, it is for EE 1.14 and above versions. )

1 Answer 1


you are checking the configuration for coupon codes.

If you want to see Auto Generated Specific Coupon Codes section then you need to follow something like this:

1.  On the Admin menu, select Promotions > Shopping Cart Price Rules.
2.  Select an existing rule, or create a new one.
3.  Set Coupon to “Specific Coupon.” Then, do the following:
a.  Select the Use Auto Generation checkbox.
b.  Complete the other rule settings as needed.
4.  Click the Save and Continue Editing button.

then you will see in left panel Manage Coupon Codes which is what I assume you are looking for.

Hope This Helps!

  • Thanks for the response. But I can't see any Auto Generation checkbox.

  • Yes. It should be populated as in Magento EE1.14. But here i'm not getting it. Even it doesn't have in the core code
