Collections - Bloomreach Experience - Open Source CMS

Collections

Collections help users evaluate the performance of a group of entities, such as Products, Categories, Queries, and Pages. Users create a collection to see how a group of items perform together over time, as well as to compare the performance of each item in the group with the rest. 

Collection Management allows the user to add new and update existing collections. The collections can be created for the following entities:

  • Product 
  • Category 
  • Page
  • Query 
  • Brand

For each of the entities mentioned above, a separate report dashboard provides insights into collection performance.

Hard limit for Product Collections
There is a hard limit of 1000 PIDs per collection. Ensure that you do not cross this limit for the collections to work properly.
