Weighted Search

Live Search is an advanced search service that is available for Adobe Commerce. The standard search functionality described in this topic might differ for Live Search.

Product attributes that are enabled for catalog search can be assigned a weight to give them a higher value in search results. Attributes with a greater weight are returned before those with a lower weight. For example, if there are two attributes in the system, color with a search weight of 3 and description with a search weight of 1. A search for the word red returns a list of products with a color attribute value of red, but does not return products with descriptions that contain the word red. In this example, the color attribute has a greater defined weight than the description attribute.

Search Weight

Set the search weight properties of an attribute

  1. On the Admin sidebar, go to Stores > Attributes > Product.

  2. Find the attribute in the list and open in edit mode.

  3. In the left panel, choose Storefront Properties and do the following:

    • To include the attribute in search queries, set Use in Search to Yes.

    • To establish the search value of the attribute, set Search Weight to a number from 1 to 10, where 10 has the highest priority. If no value is entered, all attributes default to a search weight of 1.

  4. When complete, click Save Attribute.
