This page provides Business administrators or moderators a user guide for the Ratings and Reviews microservice for the Infosys Equinox platform.

Getting Started


Accessing the Ratings and Reviews Console

The Ratings and Reviews admin console allows a business admin or moderator to view, approve, or reject the ratings and reviews submitted by the customers on the product/SKU that they bought in the storefront. Only the approved reviews are displayed on the storefront. Using the console, you can generate reports by overall ratings or recently reviewed reviews and download them to your local computer if required.

For a detailed overview of the Ratings and Reviews microservice, see the Ratings and Reviews Microservice Overview.

Service Glossary

  • Business – the parent of a store or set of stores. The basic use of a business is to manage common sets of users, catalogs, and other services for the stores associated with the business.
  • Business Admin – a role that manages business settings, creates and manages stores, and enables microservice(s) for a business.
  • Customer– a business consumer or buyer on the Business’ B2B storefront.
  • Product – a good, service, or idea that has a combination of tangible and intangible attributes and can have multiple variants which are referred to as stock-keeping units (SKUs). In Infosys Equinox Commerce, the consumer/buyer evaluates a product (for example, a men’s dress shoe available in black and brown and in sizes from 10 to 15), but actually purchases a SKU associated with the product (for example, a black-colored version of the dress shoe in size 12) rather than the product itself.
  • Stock Keeping Unit (SKU) – a particular variant of a product which is available for purchase by a consumer/buyer.
  • Store – represents a specific physical location or online store of a business.
  • Storefront – a consumer-facing website that presents products, content, and promotions across multiple channels such as desktop, tablet, and mobile.
