I am currently trying to configure the home page facets and search facets in my GeoNetwork 4.4.4 application, but I've encountered some challenges.

Issues Encountered:

Missing config-summary.xml:

According to the documentation, I should be able to configure facets in the config-summary.xml file. However, I cannot find this file in the expected location (WEB-INF/config).

Editing CatController.js:

I attempted to modify CatController.js located in src/main/webapp/geonetwork/catalog/js, but my changes don't seem to take effect. I'm not sure if I'm missing a step or if there's a caching issue.

User Interface:

The user interface doesn't seem to provide options to configure these facets directly.

This works in 4.2.9, so it might work for you.

In the User interface console in the admin console:

  • Click the "Choose an option to customize" drop-down.
  • Select "Search application / Facets configuration"
  • Scroll down to Facets configuration and you will see the text box now populated with the config.
