A facet is used to categorize content based on a taxonomy value. This makes the content easier to find. To display additional information based on the selected facet above the search bar, use super facets.

Facets can be displayed in different ways.

  • Vertical facets are displayed in the left pane.

  • Horizontal facets are displayed above the asset grid or table.
