Symptoms

Catalog items are not being returned when searched for on the Portal.

Release

All

Cause

This issue was seen because, on the affected instance, the sc_cat_item - extending from sys_metadata was not indexed completely.

Updating a record from the sc_cat_item table triggered indexing for that item and it was searchable.

Resolution

The way to resolve this issue is to reindex the affected table - sc_cat_item or sys_metadata as required.

This can be done without impacting existing search results by using real-time indexing which is described in the document at the link below:
