Generating a search space XML

The steps in this section explain how to generate a search space XML when creating a search space from WebSphere Commerce Accelerator.


  1. Open the WebSphere Commerce configuration file.
  2. Set the value of the <GenerateXMLFile> tag to " true" <SearchSpaceConfiguration name="Search Space Configuration"> <CompatibilityMode value="true"/> <GenerateXMLFile value="true"/> </SearchSpaceConfiguration>
  3. Restart the WebSphere Commerce instance for the changes to take effect.
  4. Creating a Product Advisor search space using an XML file


Important: The generated XML is specific to creating base search space for a category. To create a separate search category using this XML, refer to the WebSphere Commerce online help. The name of the generated XML will be ss_ categoryID.xml, where categoryID is the category reference number for which the search space is created.
