Migrating facetable attributes

If you are migrating from WebSphere Commerce Version 7 Feature Pack 2, 3, or 4, migrate facetable attributes.

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.


  1. Go to the following directory:
    • WCDE_installdir\bin
  2. For attribute dictionary facetable attributes, run the search faceted attributes migration utility:
    • migrateSearchFacet.bat
  3. To ensure that the migrated attributes display in the storefront, set the FACETABLE column of the ATTR table to 1:
    UPDATE ATTR SET FACETABLE = 1 WHERE ATTR_ID IN (list_of_facetable_attribute_ids);
