Resource: AttributesConfig

Catalog level attribute config.

JSON representation
{
  "name": string,
  "catalogAttributes": {
    string: {
      object (CatalogAttribute)
    },
    ...
  },
  "attributeConfigLevel": enum (AttributeConfigLevel)
}
Fields
name

string

Required. Immutable. The fully qualified resource name of the attribute config. Format: projects/*/locations/*/catalogs/*/attributesConfig

catalogAttributes

map (key: string, value: object (CatalogAttribute))

Enable attribute(s) config at catalog level. For example, indexable, dynamicFacetable, or searchable for each attribute.

The key is catalog attribute's name. For example: color, brands, attributes.custom_attribute, such as attributes.xyz.

The maximum number of catalog attributes allowed in a request is 1000.

attributeConfigLevel

enum (AttributeConfigLevel)

Output only. The AttributeConfigLevel used for this catalog.

CatalogAttribute

Catalog level attribute config for an attribute. For example, if customers want to enable/disable facet for a specific attribute.

  "facetConfig": {
    object (FacetConfig)
  }
}
Fields
key

string

Required. Attribute name. For example: color, brands, attributes.custom_attribute, such as attributes.xyz. To be indexable, the attribute name can contain only alpha-numeric characters and underscores. For example, an attribute named attributes.abc_xyz can be indexed, but an attribute named attributes.abc-xyz cannot be indexed.

If the attribute key starts with attributes., then the attribute is a custom attribute. Attributes such as brands, patterns, and title are built-in and called system attributes.

inUse

boolean

Output only. Indicates whether this attribute has been used by any products. True if at least one Product is using this attribute in Product.attributes. Otherwise, this field is False.

CatalogAttribute can be pre-loaded by using CatalogService.AddCatalogAttribute, CatalogService.ImportCatalogAttributes, or CatalogService.UpdateAttributesConfig APIs. This field is False for pre-loaded CatalogAttributes.

Only pre-loaded catalog attributes that are neither in use by products nor predefined can be deleted. Catalog attributes that are either in use by products or are predefined attributes cannot be deleted; however, their configuration properties will reset to default values upon removal request.

After catalog changes, it takes about 10 minutes for this field to update.

type

enum (AttributeType)

Output only. The type of this attribute. This is derived from the attribute in Product.attributes.

indexableOption

enum (IndexableOption)

When AttributesConfig.attribute_config_level is CATALOG_LEVEL_ATTRIBUTE_CONFIG, if INDEXABLE_ENABLED attribute values are indexed so that it can be filtered, faceted, or boosted in SearchService.Search.

Must be specified when AttributesConfig.attribute_config_level is CATALOG_LEVEL_ATTRIBUTE_CONFIG, otherwise throws INVALID_FORMAT error.

dynamicFacetableOption

enum (DynamicFacetableOption)

If DYNAMIC_FACETABLE_ENABLED, attribute values are available for dynamic facet. Could only be DYNAMIC_FACETABLE_DISABLED if CatalogAttribute.indexable_option is INDEXABLE_DISABLED. Otherwise, an INVALID_ARGUMENT error is returned.

Must be specified, otherwise throws INVALID_FORMAT error.

searchableOption

enum (SearchableOption)

When AttributesConfig.attribute_config_level is CATALOG_LEVEL_ATTRIBUTE_CONFIG, if SEARCHABLE_ENABLED, attribute values are searchable by text queries in SearchService.Search.

If SEARCHABLE_ENABLED but attribute type is numerical, attribute values will not be searchable by text queries in SearchService.Search, as there are no text values associated to numerical attributes.

Must be specified, when AttributesConfig.attribute_config_level is CATALOG_LEVEL_ATTRIBUTE_CONFIG, otherwise throws INVALID_FORMAT error.

recommendationsFilteringOption

enum (RecommendationsFilteringOption)

When AttributesConfig.attribute_config_level is CATALOG_LEVEL_ATTRIBUTE_CONFIG, if RECOMMENDATIONS_FILTERING_ENABLED, attribute values are filterable for recommendations. This option works for categorical features only, does not work for numerical features, inventory filtering.

exactSearchableOption

enum (ExactSearchableOption)

If EXACT_SEARCHABLE_ENABLED, attribute values will be exact searchable. This property only applies to textual custom attributes and requires indexable set to enabled to enable exact-searchable. If unset, the server behavior defaults to EXACT_SEARCHABLE_DISABLED.

retrievableOption

enum (RetrievableOption)

If RETRIEVABLE_ENABLED, attribute values are retrievable in the search results. If unset, the server behavior defaults to RETRIEVABLE_DISABLED.

facetConfig

object (FacetConfig)

Contains facet options.

DYNAMIC_FACETABLE_DISABLED Dynamic facetable option disabled for an attribute.

SearchableOption

The status of the searchable option of a catalog attribute.

  "facetIntervals": [
    {
      object (Interval)
    }

      object (IgnoredFacetValues)
    }
  ],
  "mergedFacetValues": [
    {
      object (MergedFacetValue)
    }
  ]
}
Fields
facetIntervals[]

object (Interval)

If you don't set the facet SearchRequest.FacetSpec.FacetKey.intervals in the request to a numerical attribute, then we use the computed intervals with rounded bounds obtained from all its product numerical attribute values. The computed intervals might not be ideal for some attributes. Therefore, we give you the option to overwrite them with the facetIntervals field. The maximum of facet intervals per CatalogAttribute is 40. Each interval must have a lower bound or an upper bound. If both bounds are provided, then the lower bound must be smaller or equal than the upper bound.

ignoredFacetValues[]

object (IgnoredFacetValues)

Each instance represents a list of attribute values to ignore as facet values for a specific time range. The maximum number of instances per CatalogAttribute is 25.

mergedFacetValues[]

object (MergedFacetValue)

Each instance replaces a list of facet values by a merged facet value. If a facet value is not in any list, then it will stay the same. To avoid conflicts, only paths of length 1 are accepted. In other words, if "dark_blue" merged into "BLUE", then the latter can't merge into "blues" because this would create a path of length 2. The maximum number of instances of MergedFacetValue per CatalogAttribute is 100. This feature is available only for textual custom attributes.

IgnoredFacetValues

Facet values to ignore on facets during the specified time range for the given SearchResponse.Facet.key attribute.

JSON representation
{
  "values": [
    string
  ],
  "startTime": string,
  "endTime": string
}
Fields
values[]

string

List of facet values to ignore for the following time range. The facet values are the same as the attribute values. There is a limit of 10 values per instance of IgnoredFacetValues. Each value can have at most 128 characters.

startTime

string (Timestamp format)

Time range for the current list of facet values to ignore. If multiple time ranges are specified for an facet value for the current attribute, consider all of them. If both are empty, ignore always. If start time and end time are set, then start time must be before end time. If start time is not empty and end time is empty, then will ignore these facet values after the start time.

A timestamp in RFC3339 UTC "Zulu" format, with nanosecond resolution and up to nine fractional digits. Examples: "2014-10-02T15:01:23Z" and "2014-10-02T15:01:23.045123456Z".

endTime

string (Timestamp format)

If start time is empty and end time is not empty, then ignore these facet values before end time.

A timestamp in RFC3339 UTC "Zulu" format, with nanosecond resolution and up to nine fractional digits. Examples: "2014-10-02T15:01:23Z" and "2014-10-02T15:01:23.045123456Z".

MergedFacetValue

Replaces a set of textual facet values by the same (possibly different) merged facet value. Each facet value should appear at most once as a value per CatalogAttribute. This feature is available only for textual custom attributes.

JSON representation
{
  "values": [
    string
  ],
  "mergedValue": string
}
Fields
