SDL SmartTarget 2014 lets CMS users configure promotions.

Can we filter or refine a Promotion based on Tridion attributes such as Component, Schema, or Component Template? For SmartTarget 2014, would this be on the Tridion or Business Manager side?.

I'd like CMS or Business Manager users to be able to control which Schemas and/or Component Templates should return in a given SmartTarget region.

Edit: made question clearer and specified the version.

I would suggest using the Filtering and Ordering section to filter on these attributes. Information about Schemas and Component Templates are automatically added by SmartTarget so you can directly filter on them in the editing screen for a Promotion.

You do need to ensure that they have been marked as "live" attributes in Fredhopper by adding them to the navigation index.

Relevant docs:

  • Nice. I've seen Schemas and Component Templates in the (old) Business Manager, thanks for explaining how they work with ST 2014. Should I give JanH a chance to answer before accepting? :-) Commented Aug 26, 2014 at 19:48

Using the Filter option in Business Manager, users can filter by Template Title attribute, as well as Schema attribute for instance. So this would be a filter within a promotion, not at region level.

EDIT: These filters are actually exposed in the ST 2014 interface.
