Products (PIM): Allow facets search not only on directly classified records

Bart Theys 5 years ago in Products updated by petra.tant 4 years ago 7

Hi,

In Asset Studio, (facet) filters work on all records within the selected classification (including records that are not directly linked).

However in Products (PIM) It is only possible to see the directly classified records as a facet result. Because of the nature of a pim system, facet search is not very useful when it cannot be user over different classifications.

Can facet search work on all descendants (or make it optional via a 'Only direct classified' checkbox, as is the case today in Asset studio)?

Best Regards,

Bart Theys.

Hi Bart,

 

Since Products 4.1 there is an additional option in the facets panel allowing to 'search in child categories'. I presume that is what you meant. If not, Bart, please give me a shout.

Hi Petra,

Indeed that was exactly what we needed.

Thanks!

Hi,

Refer to https://support.adamsoftware.net/requests/8006

Unfortunately it turns out that the 'search in child categories' only has impact on the search box result. But the updated facet values do not seem to take options into account of records in child categories

Regards,

Bart.

Hi Bart,

 

I've put the option back on 'planned' since we are redesigning facets in the enterprise search upgrade of the product. The facet counter update is a requirement in this redesign.

Thank you Petra.
We are looking forward to the upcoming versions.

Bart.

Hi Bart,

The Products released in conjunction with ADAM 5.6 aka Summer 2016 contains redesigned facets.

Should be ok now.
