I've started playing around with EPiServer Find and I've got it working well with the standard EPiServer CMS thanks to Joel Abrahamsson blog posts. What I'd like to know is how to extend the index to apply to commerce products and categories? Or does Find already cater for this? Been trying to search for documentation on using it with Commerce but haven't had any luck with finding any.
If anyone can point me in the right direction of how to go about doing this that would be great!
Thanks in advance,
At the moment Find does not support indexing of Commerce products out of the box. This is something that we are working on and it will most likely be done for the next release of commerce.
For you to be able to index your commerce site you can read more about regular indexing here: http://find.episerver.com/Documentation/dotnet-api-indexing Find indexes any .NET object so you can by small means index your commerce product base.
Hope that helps you on the way.
Thanks very much for the reply Marcus that has answered my question. Look forward to seeing the new release of commerce shortly.
Has this been updated now so that Episerver Commerce 7.5 together with FIND we can Index Products and Catalogs?
Yes read this post from Jonas Bergquist on how to do that: http://world.episerver.com/Blogs/Jonas-Bergqvist/Dates/2014/1/Indexing-catalog-content-using-EPiServer-Find-Content-Indexing-Job
This is amazing - many thanks for this - it saved our bacon :)
