We are currently passing data to a field called “category” in the Data Catalogue of Target. The field is being populated properly with values however when we try to consume the data to define a value in the design we are building for a recommendations activity, no value is showing up. Is this a known limitation?

@michaelt24493243 Have you created a feed and is the data already ingested in Recommendations?

You can create a criteria on the 'Current Category', the recommendation is determined by the product category that the visitor is currently viewing.

Recommendations display items in the specified product category.

Create criteria

Hi michaelt24492388​!

Per Entity attributes​, categoryId supports multi value attributes- which could make entity.categoryId not desirable to be returned in designs (think formatting etc).

Hope this helps!
