Last updated on JANUARY 20, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Commerce Guided Search / Oracle Commerce Experience Manager - Version 11.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


A content item which includes a refinement but no search terms includes "matchmode" in triggers. It should not include matchmode setting when search term is not added.
If ECR content is exported we see below.
  "triggers": [{
  "exactLocation": true,
  "matchmode": "MATCHPHRASE",
  "dvalIDs": ["101420"]
IF ECR content is exported and imported to another 11.3 env, it will cause the following type of error indicating searchTerms needs to be present along with matchmode.

SEVERE: Caught an exception while invoking method 'importApplication' on object 'IFCR'. Releasing locks. Failed with error Bad Request (400): "The following 8 validation failures occurred:
