Associating Search Categories to New Search Definitions

Identify all search categories that you want to expose in your application and associate them to the appropriate search definition. Also, specify the filter search spec for each search category.

To associate search categories to a search definition

  1. Add the required search categories to the search definition.
  2. For example, the Call Center Application uses the search definition Call Center Definition. Some of the search categories exposed in this application include Catalog Category, External Document, Literature, Product, and so on.

  3. Optionally, you may specify an appropriate filter search specification for each category.
  4. For example, for the search category Product in the Call Center Definition to restrict product search results by the Catalog Type of Buying, you may want to specify a filter search specification like the following:
    [Catalog Type]<>LookupValue(`CTLG_TYPE', `Buying')

    NOTE:  The filter field Catalog Type needs to be already defined as a filter field for the associated search index. See Creating Search Filter Fields for information.
