•Potential to store millions of items, which a tree structure would not support
•Support for potentially millions of items that would not suit a tree structure and slow down the UI –for example, products, repositories and orders
•Automatically organizes content items into a folder structure that improves database retrieval performance
•Queries run against an index, ensuring high performance
•Find what you want quickly by using free text search, facets and search filters.
•You do not care about the structure of the data stored in the bucket
•You anticipate a large volume of items
•You would benefit from searching for items rather than locating them in the tree.
- Using the content editor navigate to specific template standard value which you want to make bucket.
- Click the Configure tab->Buckets->Bucket to turn it into a bucket.
- Navigate to the item which is created from this template.
So above we just create a bucket item, & all of his children must be bucketable if we want to store in the bucket.
So we need to make children item template bucketable. Here below are the steps:
- Using content editor navigate to the one of children item whose template we want to make bucketable.
- Make all these type of item bucketable by enabling the Standard values check box in the Bucketable settings group of the Configure tab:
Note: Because you have made a change to the bucketable settings, you now need to sync the bucket.
- Select the bucket (that is the parent item) and synchronize it by clicking the Sync button in the Buckets group.
Any item can become a bucket. The children under the buckets can be a mix of both bucketable and non-bucketable items, however the two types will not behave in the same way. Therefore, to make a consistent experience for your authors, consider only having bucketable items under a bucket.
To view the folder structure in the content tree of bucketable items under a bucket, click View->Buckets option.
To preserve the parent/child relationship of items stored in a bucket, navigate to the Standard Values of the template of the item that will act as the parent
