Updating a catalog search index

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

Indexing a catalog Commerce: 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).

Building and rebuilding the catalog index

  1. Open the Administration view and select Catalog Indexing.

  2. Click Rebuild Index or Build Index.
  3. After performing the operation, changes are reflected in the search results.
