migrateSearchFacet utility

Use the migrateSearchFacet utility to migrate your existing attribute dictionary facetable attributes to the latest version of WebSphere Commerce Search. Typically, you run this utility while migrating WebSphere Commerce Search from a BOD-based search deployment.

Note: WebSphere Commerce Version 8 does not support attributes that are not in the attribute dictionary. You must use attribute dictionary attributes for faceted navigation.
