In Endeca, A Dimension can be created using multiple properties.

Example: More Ways to Shop dimension should contain 3 different properties sale, online, new so that user should be able to select multiple refinements under one dimension.

Following are the ways to achieve it :-

1.  Using Product-sku-output-config.xml : 

Add outpur-name and use same name for all properties those needs to be combined for one Dimension
     <property name="online" is-dimension="true" type="string" multiselect-type="multi-or" output-name="product.moreWaysToshop"/>
    <property name="sale" is-dimension="true" type="float" multiselect-type="multi-or" output-name="product.moreWaysToshop"/>
    <property name="new " is-dimension="true" type="float" multiselect-type="multi-or" output-name="product.moreWaysToshop"/>



2. Developer Studio:  

Map dimension to multiple source properties as per screen shot below: -

3. Index-config.json

This can be used for CAS based indexing where we have multiple source and joined using Endeca CAS system. use following examples to add mapping to index-config.xml and can be found under <<Endeca_App>>/config/mdex folder

 "product.moreWaystoShop" : {
 "sourcePropertyNames" : [ "new" ],
 "isAutogen" : true,
 "jcr:primaryType" : "endeca:dimension"
 },
 "product.moreWaystoShop" : {
 "sourcePropertyNames" : [ "online" ],
 "isAutogen" : true,
 "jcr:primaryType" : "endeca:dimension"
 },
 "product.moreWaystoShop" : {
 "sourcePropertyNames" : [ "sale" ],
 "isAutogen" : true,
 "jcr:primaryType" : "endeca:dimension"
 }


Output would be looks like below in Endeca jspref   :-
