Catalog indexing

Catalog indexing enables searching catalog information, including catalogs, categories, products, and variants.

Two Catalog search indexes are defined:

  • commerce_products_master_index resides on the Master database, and is consumed by the Merchandising Manager business tool.
  • commerce_products_web_index resides on the Web database, and is optionally consumed on storefronts.

The indexes crawlers and strategies are defined in the Sitecore Commerce Connect component.

For more information about search indexes on both master and web databases, see the Search indexes required in a scalable environment page on doc.sitecore.net.
