iStore Advanced Search On Leaf Sections Not Working

(Doc ID 2220586.1)

Last updated on JUNE 14, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle iStore - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In advanced search, under "Categories" LOV, iStore only shows navigational sections but not leaf level sections
Need to conduct search on the leaf sections to narrow down.


Leaf section definition:

A leaf section is the last section(s) in a site section hierarchy node. A leaf section may be a Featured or a Navigational section --- what characterizes it as a leaf section is its location in the hierarchy and the fact that it cannot have subsections.

Typically, a leaf section will contain only products.


"Categories" drop-down should all sections (navigational and featured).

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Create below section hierarchy.

         Sentinel Desktops..

2. Set "IBE:Use Category Search" = No at iStore application level

3. Access iStore customer runtime-UI

Navigate to "Advanced Search" page
See list of choices under "Categories"
You will only see "Desktops" but not "Sentinel Desktops"
