Facets

Faceting is a high-performance filtering method that uses multiple dimensions of searchable static and dynamic attribute values as search criteria. The available facets appear in the left sidebar of search results pages, with the most commonly used facets “pinned” to the top of the list. The productSearch query contains an example where facets have been configured.

Go to Facets in the Adobe Commerce User Guide for information about facet setup, attribute requirements, types of facets, and their use from the Admin and storefront.

Facet aggregation

Facet aggregation is performed as follows if the storefront has three facets (categories, color and price) and the shopper filters on all three (color = blue, price is from $10.00-50.00, categories = promotions).

  • categories aggregation - Aggregates categories, applies color and price filters, but not the categories filter.
  • color aggregation - Aggregates color, applies price and categories filters, but not the color filter.
  • price aggregation - Aggregates price, applies color and categories filters, but not the price filter.
