When importing a Sitecore JSS App, we noticed that the default behavior is the renderings are added in the Final Layout in the Presentation Details in the item.

Is there a way to change the default behavior to have the renderings added to the Shared Layout instead of Final Layout?

Yes it is possible by turning off the useLanguageSpecificLayout setting on your JSS app definition.


<app name="MyApp"
  useLanguageSpecificLayout="false" />
