Oracle Commerce Platform - Version 10.0.2 to 11.1 [Release 10 to 11]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Categories created under NonNavigableProducts category are shown in the website

The products under the sub-categories for 'NonNavigableProducts' category should not be visible to the web site visitor.
However, if a product is also a member of sub-categories under the 'root navigation' hierarchy then in this case that product can be seen on CRS.

As per

ATG Commerce Reference Store Overview > Product Catalog > Catalog Structure  > Commerce Reference Store Master Catalogs

"Neither the NonNavigableProducts category nor its children should be visible to a Web site visitor. For this reason, both categories are explicitly excluded from the index"

However it seems that on adding category / sub-category under NonNavigableProducts category, those are visible. If products are added to NonNavigableProducts category, then this issue doesn't happen.


 1. Login on BCC
 2. Create Merch project and navigate to 'NonNavigableProducts' category.
 3. Create a sub-category under 'NonNavigableProducts' category and add a new  product.
 4. Deploy the project.
 5. Search for the created product in CRS.
