Managing categories

Use the Category Manager to add, edit, and delete content categories.
  1. Click Admin Tools, and then click Category Manager.

    The Category Manager page shows a tree structure of the categories created in the system. The top level is called Category Root and by default, the following sub-categories are listed:

    • Languages
    • Regions
    • Software Document Classification
    • Tags

    You can categorize files using parent categories and their child categories.

  2. Click the category icons (Category) to expand the list of categories.

    When you hover over the category name, you see the available action icons for: Edit category (Edit), Add category (Add), and Delete category (Delete).

  3. To edit a category, click the Edit Category icon, edit the category name inline, and then click Save.
  4. To add a category, click the Add Category icon, enter a name in the Category name field, and then click OK.

    When using Solr, there maybe a delay before the new category appears in a search query until after Solr has been reindexed. Categories are eventually consistent. Categories are available for use across all sites and by all users.

  5. To delete a category, click the Delete Category icon, and then click Delete to confirm that you wish to delete the category.

    The category is deleted from the system. Any content is removed from that category label.

See Tagging and categorizing content for more about using categories.
