DotFeed Mapping Rules "Category Path"

I have been looking for the DotFeed mapping rules for Category Path in the DotFeed manual but don’t find any information about how to write condition for the Category Path. Can someone confirm that the following is correct or not? I see it in the dotfeed but not sure if it's working or not.

If All of the following are true:

Category Path Matches Accessories -> Goggles

then set google_product_category = Sporting Goods > Winter Sports > Snowboarding > Ski & Snowboarding Goggles.

Thanks,

We ran in to a situation where we were doing something similar and ended up having better luck matching the Category ID.

Tested and tried these variations: 

  • Category Path Matches Accessories->Goggles
  • Category Path Matches Accessories -> Goggles
  • Category Path Matches Accessories>Goggles
  • Category Path Matches Accessories > Goggles
  • Category Path Matches Accessories/Goggles
  • Category Path Matches Accessories / Goggles
  • Category Path Matches Accessories\Goggles
  • Category Path Matches Accessories \ Goggles

Not of them work. So I tried Category Name instead. 

It looks like this.

If All of the following are true:

Category Name Matches Goggles

then set google_product_category = Sporting Goods > Winter Sports > Snowboarding > Ski & Snowboarding Goggles.

When preview results, I can see google_product_category is set to the above. 

Now using Category Name instead of the Category Path. 

Note: If there are categories that have the same name but in different subcategory, then the solution is to use Category ID as a condition instead of Category Name.

Hope this will help others who have the same issue.
