Browsing the Apps by Category

The Applications page, by default, lists all the apps available on the marketplace. It lists the featured apps at the top of the page, followed by apps in each category, such as Marketing, Sales, and Service.

To browse the list of apps by a specific category, select a category from the Categories navigation bar.

The top of the page displays the featured apps for the category you selected. In addition, the page displays all the apps available for the selected category and sorts the apps from highest to lowest rating.

You can select a subcategory to further refine your results. The page displays the apps only for the subcategory you selected.

Browsing the Services by Region or Industry

To view only services available in a specific geographic region, select the appropriate check box in the Regions navigation bar. You can select more than one region.

To browse the list of services by a specific industry, select an industry from the Industries navigation bar.

You can select an industry, and one or more geographic regions to narrow your search of available services. Either selection refines your results.

The top of the page displays the featured services for the geographic regions and industry you selected. In addition, the page displays all the services available for the selected combination of regions and industries, and then sorts the services from highest to lowest rating.

Oracle Cloud Marketplace uses a powerful search algorithm, called progressive relaxation. You do not need to enter quotation marks to find an exact match, use Boolean operators to find any or all words, or worry about case sensitivity. Instead, the search algorithm automatically runs different queries, such as exact matching and fuzzy matching, to progressively relax the search and collect results.

The system searches through the following pieces of information to collect results:

  • Name

  • Short description

  • Long description

  • Provider name

  • Provider description

  • List of the Oracle Cloud product solutions (the focus of the app or service)

The search algorithm then calculates a rank for each result. For example, results that match all the words receive a higher ranking than results that match some of the words.

By default, the system uses the ranking to sort the results by relevance. The most relevant results are at the top of the list. You can use the options on the Sort by menu to sort the results by name or customer rating. For apps, you can also sort by the release date.
