Importing an Existing Taxonomy

The following procedure uses the Taxonomy Wizard to import a taxonomy.

 

 
IMPORTANT   You can import only XML taxonomies into Business Console.
 

 

1. From the Summary screen, click Create in the Taxonomy pane. The Taxonomy Wizard displays.

2. Click Import a Taxonomy stored locally.

3. Select Automatically publish all categories in the new taxonomy to publish the categories during the creation process. Publishing all the categories eliminates the need to publish each category individually after creation.

4. Click Next.



5. Enter a name for the imported taxonomy. Choose the taxonomy locale. Click Next.



6. Choose the local taxdef file to import by browsing to the directory containing the XML file. Select the XML file. The file displays in the File Name text box. Click Next.



7. Optionally, choose the topic set outline file to import by browsing to the directory containing the OTL file. Select the OTL file. The displays in the File Name text box. Click Next.

8. Select the collection to associate to the taxonomy. Click Next.



9. Create a new parametric index or choose from existing Business Console parametric indexes for any associated collection. Select Automatically update on category publish to ensure that the parametric index is updated with the new taxonomy. Click Next.

 

   
  Note   If you select this option, when you publish an updated taxonomy the parametric index associated with that taxonomy is also updated. Other parametric indexes require manual updates through the Parametric Index module.
   

 



10. Review the taxonomy selections. Click Create Taxonomy to create the new taxonomy. The taxonomy creation runs in the wizard.

11. When the taxonomy has been created, click Open New Taxonomy to open the taxonomy or Exit to leave the taxonomy wizard.
