Managing search rules

Search rules provide a means to deliver customized search results and ordering when customers search the storefront.

For example, you can create the following search rules by using the Search Rule Builder:
  • When a customer searches the store, change the relative order of the search result by favouring catalog entries that belong to a specific brand or category, or sort catalog entries by price.
  • When a customer searches the store, promote specific catalog entries to the top of the search results.
  • When a customer searches the store, sort catalog entries by their manufacturer name.
WebSphere Commerce Version or laterNote: In order to use search rules, you must set up a dedicated thread pool to manage search rule communications between the server and the Search server
