AEM integrates with Search&Promote and allows you to:
- use the eCommerce API, independently of the underlying repository structure and commerce platform.
- leverage the Index Connector feature of Search&Promote to provide a product feed in XML format.
- leverage the Remote Control feature of Search&Promote to perform on-demand or scheduled requests of the product feed
- feed generation for different Search&Promote accounts, configured as cloud services configurations.
You need to have a valid acount and to configure the connection to Search&Promote. You also have to verify that you are using the correct data center and make sure that the Remote server URI is configured.
Then you also have to edit two configurations in the Web Console before you can generate product feeds.
To enable scheduled feed generation, you must configure a scheduler for it.
A scheduler is configured as a child configuration of your specific Search&Promote cloud services configuration.
Enable the On-demand indexing or not. This feature is used to manually call the Search&Promote index. If Request full products feed is checked, Search&Promote will request a full products feed. Otherwise, an incremental products feed is requested.
The on-demand indexing feature makes use of the Remote Control feature of Search&Promote. When a remote indexing is called, the indexing will not start immediately, but an indexing request will be posted to Search&Promote using the remote control feature.
Now that you configured everything, you can see an XML page containing all the products under the configured web site root: http://localhost:4502/etc/commerce/searchpromote/feed/full.
