Category pages require data like page title, keywords description for search engine optimization(SEO) from the category repository.

There are ways to get SEO specific information. ATG-Endeca Integration creates a product.category hierarchical dimension. OOTB integration does not add SEO related attributes/properties to the product.category dimension. As per best practices, get all SEO data using Endeca product.category dimension instead of making repository calls to ATG.

Endeca provides a  feature to add properties to dimension and it can be added during data export from ATG process. Oracle Endeca commerce out of box provide below attributes:

product.category > Women--;{DGraph.Spec=cat50001, category.ancestorCatalogIds=masterCatalog, category.catalogs.repositoryId=masterCatalog, category.repositoryId=cat50001, category.rootCatalogId=masterCatalog, category.siteId=storeSiteUS, record.id=atgrep:/ProductCatalog/category/cat50001?catalog=masterCatalog&categoryPath=/cat50001&locale=en_US}
