This topic describes how to disable the event listener. This is useful if you do not want Commerce catalog content to be indexed by Search & Navigation (formerly Find), in solutions where you use the Search & Navigation search provider EPiServer.Find.Commerce.
How it works
EPiServer.Find.Commerce has an event listener that listens for events trigged by the Episerver Commerce Framework API. The event listener gets typed content for the catalog/node/entry that was added/changed/deleted, and updates the index. You can disable the event listener by setting the appsettings value of episerver:FindIndexCatalogContent to false.
Enable the event listener for front-end servers or edit servers because it listens for remote events coming from Commerce Manager. By itself, this does not index typed content, because it does not have the types defined in any assembly. Instead, it sends events when something changes, and the front-end server or edit server (with the listener enabled) then indexes typed content of the correct type.
The Service API indexes the typed content if the configuration file episerver:FindIndexCatalogContent setting is set to true.
