Symptoms

Problem Statement:

Items associated to unmapped categories displayed in iProcurement search results.

The local content zone definition has the checkbox, < > Include items without shopping categories, not checked. Users expect these items should not appear in iProcurement search results since they are associated to a purchasing category that is not mapped to a shopping category. Instead the items do appear in the iProcurement search results.

Steps To Reproduce:

1. Navigate to iProcurement Catalog Administrator / Stores / Content Zones.
2. Click Edit for the All Local Content content zone.
- see that the checkbox, < > Include items without shopping categories, is not checked
3. In iProcurement Catalog Administrator, choose Schema / Category Mapping.
4. Query for the Purchasing Category associated to the item.
- verify that the Purchasing Category is NOT mapped to a Shopping Category.
5. Navigate to iProcurement.
6. Search for item in the store.
- see the item in the search results even though the item is associated to a purchasing category that is not mapped to a shopping category.
