Defect HC-13194

Poor performance in query service with "Hero" option defined in the Search Profile


Customer case Applies to Corrected in
CS0262427 V.

Observed behavior

When grouping is enabled for hero products, query response can be excessively slow.

Expected behavior

The query service should respond within a reasonable timeframe.


When grouping is enabled for browsing, and merchandising attributes are not used to promote products, performance can be improved.

A new attribute is added to the search profile to control the number of lookups that are performed. If useMerchandiseAttribute is set to false (the default), many lookups can be avoided, improving performance.
