Supported platforms

  • Adobe Commerce on prem (EE) : 2.4.x
  • Adobe Commerce on Cloud (ECE) : 2.4.x

Boundaries and thresholds

At this time, the Live Search search/category API has the following supported limits and static boundaries:


  • Indexes up to 300 product attributes per store view
  • Indexes only products from the Adobe Commerce database
  • Does not index CMS pages


  • Live Search can manage up to 200 synonyms per Data Space ID.


  • Live Search does not have access to the full taxonomy of the category tree, which makes some layered navigation search scenarios beyond its reach.
  • Live Search uses a unique GraphQL endpoint for queries to support features such as intelligent faceting and search-as-you-type. Although similar to the Magento GraphQL API, there are a few differences and some fields may not be fully compatible at this time.

PWA beta release

  • The current beta PWA implementation of Live Search requires more processing time to return search results than Live Search with the native Commerce storefront.
  • The beta release of PWA for Live Search does not support event handling.
  • The following product attributes are not supported by GraphQL when used in relation to the beta release of PWA: description, name, short_description

Not supported at this time
