brSEO feature APIs
Here are the feature APIs that you need to deploy during your Bloomreach SEO integration:
- Thematic API is for the Thematic Pages feature.
Widget API is for the Related Categories, Related Items and Related Products feature.
Before April 2018, the Widget API contained Related Searches and Related Products. If you integrated before April 2018, you can reference the deprecated Widget API.
What do these feature APIs do?
Thematic pages are customized landing pages that are similar to category pages. They’re created and launched by Bloomreach. These pages are focused on long-tail themes with products matched through Bloomreach’s matching technology. The thematic API searches for products that fit a theme and creates a category-like page with those products.
Related Categories, Related Items and Related Products are widgets that you place on your mobile and desktop sites to enhance discoverability and user value. The widgets for Related Categories and Related Items optimize your link structure, and the widget for Related Products optimizes your page content. The widget API uses one call to populate these widgets with search queries and products.
When you use the query '*' as 'q=*' in the API request, the latency of the response will vary depending on your catalog size and it may not adhere to the Bloomreach's standard SLA. Further, please note that except for include/exclude operation, other merchandising operations such as boost/bury or slots do not work on * query parameters.
