Product Assignment

"Product assignment" refers to the (logical) allocation of a product to a catalog category. Via product assigment, products become part of a catalog.

Product assignment can be done either manually or dynamically:

  • Manual assignment

    Manual assignment means that the category - product associations are created explicitly when editing a product or a category.

  • Dynamic assignment

    Dynamic assignment makes it possible to automate the category-product associations on the basis of product filters, see Predefined Product Filters.

    Note: Product filters require an integrated third-party search engine, see Search Index Services.

For details about manual product assignments, see Managing Products Within Catalog Categories.

For details about dynamic product assignments, see Assigning Products Using Filters.
