Catalog Essentials

This page provides the essential information for working with the catalog feature of enablement community sites.

The catalog feature, when included in a community site, allows community members to browse and select enablement resources listed in a catalog.

The enablement catalog component allows community members to access a catalog of enablement resources. The use of AEM tags is an important part of managing the appearance of enablement resources in a catalog.

See Tagging Enablement Resources.

Essentials for Server-Side

Catalog Function

A community site structure that includes the Catalog function, includes a configured enablement catalog component.


When a Catalog function has been added to a community site, it is possible to restrict the enablement resources and learning paths which appear in the catalog by specifying a pre-filter. This is done by setting properties on the instance of the catalog resource for the site.

Using the example of the Enablement Tutorial:

  • On author

  • Using CRXDE

  • Navigate to the catalog resource on the catalog page

    • For example, /content/sites/enable/en/catalog/jcr:content/content/primary/catalog
  • Add a child filters node

    • Select the catalognode

    • Select Create Node

      • Name: filters
      • Type: nt:unstructured
    • Select Save All

  • Add se_resource-tags property to the filters node

    • Select the filters node

    • Add a Multi property

      • Name: se_resource-tags

      • Type: String

      • Value: <enter a TagID>

      • Select Multi

      • Select Add

        • In popup dialog, select + to add additional pre-filter TagIDs
  • Re-publish the community site


Pre-filter TagIDs

The pre-filter TagIDs must exactly match the tags applied to the enablement resources. These are visible in the resources folder for the site as the values of the property se_resource-tags.
