    Map display/type audio and video to separate resource type facet values

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Primo
    • Product Version: 4
    • Relevant for Installation Type: MT, Dedicated-Direct; Direct; Local

    Desired Outcome Goal:
    Split facet_rtype_value "media" into separate facets "audio" and "video" to allow end users greater granularity in facet values.

    Procedure:
    1. Go to Advanced Configuration > All Mapping Tables > NORMALIZATION: format_mean:
    Update Source Code* value "video" from "media" to "video"
    Update Source Code* value "audio" from "media" to "audio"
    Save changes.

    2. Go to Advanced Configuration > All Mapping Tables > Static Facets:facet_rtype_values:
    Disable mapping row with Value Name = Media & Values*= media
    Create a new mapping row Value Name = Audio & Values*= audio
    Create a new mapping row Value Name = Video & Values*= video

    3. Go to Advanced Configuration > All Mapping Tables > Static Facets > Click "Sync" for "facet_rtype_values"

    4. Deploy code and Mapping tables.

    5. Run update pipe to update records with the new facet_rtype_value.

    6. Run indexing and hotsawpping / wait for hotswapping to complete in Multi-Tenant environment. Afterwards, see changes in Primo Front End (facets).

    Additional Information

    By default the display/types for audio and video are mapped to the same facet type of media which displays in the Primo resource type facet as "AudioVisual"
    Customers wishing to separate audio and video resource types into more granular facet can follow this procedure.
