Commerce integration

This topic describes the integration of Episerver Search & Navigation (formerly Episerver Find) with Episerver Commerce. The integration ensures that, after you implement search features, Search & Navigation treats Commerce catalog content like regular content.

Note:  The integration requires Episerver Commerce version 8.8 or higher.

Integration benefits

Commerce integration provides these features and benefits.

  • Catalog items included in Unified Search results. Projections are configured for Url, ImageUri, and object getter for inheritors of EntryContentBase.
  • Catalog items available when creating best bets. The Search & Navigation Best Bets UI lets you select catalog items.
  • Enhanced indexing of catalog items. Indexing includes all catalog languages.
  • Search provider for catalog items. Catalog items can be searched using Search & Navigation in Episerver edit view.

Integration package versus Find.Commerce package

You can use the integration package, the Find.Commerce package, or both. The integration package uses Search & Navigation as a search provider in Commerce manager and the ECF search APIs. The Find.Commerce package uses Search & Navigation to search catalog items via the Search & Navigation API. For more information on the Find.Commerce package, see Configuring Episerver Search & Navigation search provider.


To install the Commerce integration package:

  1. Add the Episerver.Commerce.FindSearchProvider package to the CMS and Commerce Manager projects using the Package Manager Console (Tools > NuGet Package Manager > Package Manager Console).

    NuGet command: Install-package Episerver.Commerce.FindSearchProvider

  2. Add the EPiServer.Find.Commerce, EPiServer.Find.Cms, and EPiServer.Find.Framework packages to the CMS project. Run the following command on CMS project.

    NuGet command: Install-package EPiServer.Find.Commerce

  3. Run the Find content indexing job. EPiServer.Find.Commerce adds data to documents being indexed, so indexed documents only match expected search results after content is reindexed.
