Error description

  • Search rules are not triggered when the  Search Criteria and
    Result is set to match a linked category and the sales catalog
    id is passed search request. However, if the master catalog id
    is passed in the search request, the search rule is triggered.
    This is only specific to the search criteria target with
    category filter.
    
     This is because the category id used in the search rule is
    stored in the following format: catalogId_categoryId.  Since
    linked categories can belong to multiple catalogs, this causes
    an issue. If the master catalog is used when the search rule is
    created, the rule fails to trigger the sales catalog id is
    passed.
    

Local fix

  • Use a sales category instead of linked category in your search
    rule
