Release Date: March 3, 2022
Znode 220.127.116.11 release includes enhancements in Search Profile - Synonyms workflow and some minor bug fixes
Index creation would be initiated every time user clicks on the “Publish Synoymn” button and all changes will be reflected on the web store once the index creation process is completed. The index creation will consider the complete Catalogs published data instead of just considering the respective synonyms published data. Path for publishing synonyms from admin application is Marketing >> Site Search >> Synonyms tab
In a scenario where the user does not publish the changes from the Synonyms tab and publishes a new index with a new name from the Search Setting -> Manage PIM Index screen even then all the new changes will be reflected on the web store
When all the changes are deployed, it will be mandatory to create a new index with a new name as all previous releases may have synonyms for both search and index time analyzers and the existing schema may not work properly with the changes deployed in the Znode 18.104.22.168 release.
In a scenario where the Synonyms token filter update process fails the new index creation will not be initiated and the changes of the previous index published will be applicable on the Web Store
Please refer to this Breaking Changes Document for more information.
