Bug and Support Fixes

The following issues have been fixed during Mar 09-Mar 23, 2023.




General Availability


UPS, Mail

Font family Trade Gothic LT Std not supported

A client was facing issue with the font family ‘Trade Gothic LT Std.’ Earlier, this font was supported, and they were able to validate it while making changes to the email layouts. But now they weren’t. This has been fixed now.




Site accessibility issue

A client was getting assigned with a site randomly (among the sites assigned to him/her) instead of the default site. This has been fixed now. User is now able to see the default site on the extreme left of the dashboard, after logging in to the application.




User management- getting 503 error to load all users for all sites

User management is throwing 503 error while loading all users for all sites selection. Cache warmup, which calls the sites/v1 API, was being called for every user ID, instead of doing it at once. There are cases of empty API key and site IDs 0 and -1, and since there are no cache entries for these values, the cache ended up making a remote call and was causing significant delay in the API response. This issue has been fixed now by adding checks to not look up the cache for all site IDs and empty API key. Also, the cache warm-up is now done only once when the application starts up.


PLAT - 3382

Streaming Catalog> Catalog Enrichment

Getting NullPointerException on enrichment service

NullPointerException thrown on enrichment service while ingesting data. This issue has been fixed now.




Category restriction rule for recently purchased category not considering ancestor categories


The Restriction rule ‘Restrict recently purchased category products’ was not considering the ancestors of recently purchased products. This issue has been fixed now, both in legacy and configurable strategies. The Restriction rule will now honour the recently purchased product categories and the ancestors also.



Enterprise Dashboard

Data extract issue in Order Details report

The Order Details report allows users to extract data for the period of 30 days from the current date. However, while generating data from the Order Details report for period earlier than 30 days (considering from current date), the user was getting a "No data found" message. Now the selection of dates in the UI beyond retention period, has been disabled so that users know for what period they can get data.




Request is timing out with External Price Filters

The request with External Price Filters was getting timed out. The issue has been fixed.



Enterprise Dashboard:

UI issue while creating Campaigns

During the Campaigns creation, when a user selected a category in the ‘Category Selector’ window, it automatically selected its last subcategory, which is a wrong behavior. The issue has been fixed.



Enterprise Dashboard:

Placement selection changes when opening Manual Recommendation Rule

In manual recommendation rule when "Use first requested placement" was shown as selected, but if you open the "select placement" section you would see that there was already a placement selected. The issue has been fixed.
