Category Facet Inheritance and Multi-sites

If you have a multi-site integration, Category Facet Inheritance settings will be shared across your sites. The exact behavior differs depending on the number of domains and views.

 

Multiple domains, no views

If you have multiple domains and no views, you can set different inheritance settings per domain. Note that in the Category Inheritance Manager, the domain name will appear next to the search bar.

 

Single domain, multiple views

If you have a single domain with multiple views, you can choose to control inheritance settings at the account level or at the domain level. This decision must be made during rollout and cannot be changed later. 

Note: Account-level control prerequisite

To control inheritance settings at the account level, you must have the same category tree structure (that is, the same category IDs) across all your sites. This will be the case if your views share the same feed data.

Account-level control

Domain-level control

 
  • Inheritance settings are the same across all views.

  • If you add a domain, then all the rules which followed inheritance will get lost for all existing sites linked to the Account settings.

 
  • Inheritance settings are the same across all views.

  • If you add a domain, then inheritance behaves the same as multi-domain, multi-view.

The image below shows what happens if you try to change inheritance settings at the account level. There will be a confirmation prompt whenever you click Save.

 

Multiple domains, multiple views

If you have multiple domains and multiple views, you must control inheritance settings at the domain level. Each domain’s inheritance settings will apply to all views under it. You can edit inheritance settings at any level, and changes will be applied to all levels.
