Find integration

Adding the Find search provider EPiServer.Find.Commerce brings powerful search capabilities to your Commerce solution. This topic describes default conventions and fitering catalog content, when using Find with Commerce.

How it works

The typed catalog content (content inheriting from CatalogContentBase) is indexed when something happens in the catalog. It does not matter if the changes are done in the new Catalog UI, Commerce manager, through IContentRepository, DTOs, or through the service API. Find indexes the typed content on one of the front-end servers.

Prices, and inventories are indexed together by default with the catalog content. This is a conventions setting that you can remove. The catalog content is updated in the index at price/inventory events, if prices/inventories have the conventions to be indexed. The default price and inventory provider raises the events needed to make reindexing possible at price/inventory changes. A custom price/inventory provider needs to raise the events to have correct price/inventory information in the index.
