This topic is intended for administrators and developers with administration access rights in Episerver.

Indexing a catalogCommerce: a top-level container for catalog entries such as categories, products, and variants (SKUs). ensures that your search results are accurate and up-to-date. You can index a catalog in the following ways:

  • Build. Indexes items that have changed since the previous build.
  • Rebuild. Indexes everything in a catalog. Do this after creating a new catalog or making structural changes to a catalog (such as moving categories or renaming products).
  1. Open Commerce ManagerOne of several main user interfaces in Episerver Commerce. This UI area, available from the top menu after logging in, provides screens for managing markets, customers, catalog, orders, and so on. You can manage the information on some Commerce Manager screens in other, newer user interfaces. Where possible, we recommend using the newer ones. and go to Administration > System Settings > Search Index.
