Filter rules for search

This is for:

Merchandiser

In the Coveo Merchandising Hub (CMH), merchandisers can define filter rules to control the products that are displayed in a search results page.

Filter rules allow merchandisers to define conditions that products must meet to be included or excluded from a query’s result set. For example, a merchandiser could create a filter rule to hide all products that are out of stock from the search results.

Filter rules can apply to all queries or to specific queries only.

Use case examples

Filter rules can be used to address a variety of use cases. Here are a few examples:

  • Hide out-of-stock products: Hide products that are out of stock from the search results.

  • Show specific products: Ensure that specific products are always displayed when a certain query is performed. For example, you could create a rule that will ensure products from a specific brand are included when the brand name is searched.

  • Hide specific products: Hide specific products from the search results when a certain query is performed. For example, you could create a rule that will hide all products from a specific category when an unrelated category is searched.

Prerequisites

To create rules, merchandisers must make sure that they have chosen the correct tracking ID to ensure that their changes impact intended queries.
