Creating an Empty Taxonomy

The following procedure uses the Taxonomy Wizard to create an empty taxonomy.

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

2. Click Create a new Taxonomy. Click Next.

3. Enter the name and locale for the new taxonomy.

The locales appearing in the drop-down list are based on your available K2 locales. You can also type in a valid locale string for K2.


  Note   After the taxonomy is created the locale cannot be changed.


Click Next.


  Note   You can click Finish at any time. Business Console uses defaults for the rest of the values.


4. Select the collections to associate to the new taxonomy. Click Next.


  Note   Only collections in the selected locale display in this list.


5. 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.


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

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