17.05 Release Notes



P13n parameter support for Refinement Fall Back

To deal with over-filtering behavior: Applying refinements or multiple refinements can lead to over-filtering of recommendations. One way to address this is to remove all refinements if the set of refinements will result in fewer recommendations than the minimum set for a placement. All refinements will be removed for all placements in the request if triggered. To enable this "fallback" simply add R3_COMMON.setRefinementFallback(false) after your R3_COMMON.addRefinement statements.

Placements page search
Search functionality to filter the placements list by placement name.



  • Find: Zero results report - respond to start date change and include terms in rule look-up (ENG-10975, ENG-10878)

    • No longer should see missing boost rules for zero-results terms
