Live Search 2.0.3

  • Compatible with Adobe Commerce (EE): 2.4.x

  • New - Live Search now supports B2B features by honoring category permissions, shared catalogs, and customer group-specific pricing.

Merchants must upgrade the Live Search extension version >= 2.0.3 to access these features.

We advise users to upgrade and test before pushing to production. Consider upgrading the production environment during off-peak hours after verifying their testing environment results.

NOTE

B2B support will be added in a phased manner starting August 9th on the backend services, with an expected migration to be completed by the end of August. If the Live Search extension is not upgraded, your storefront will continue to work normally but without B2B features.

  • Bug - Products are not displayed if not added to the “Default shared catalog”.
  • B2B with Live Search for PWA Studio will not be available until PWA Studio adds support for it.

  • Bug - Live Search synonyms are defined per store view, but are currently stored per website and identified with a combination of environmentId + storeViewCode. As a result, all websites and store views within the Adobe Commerce installation share the same set of synonyms. The most recently created set of synonyms for the store view takes precedence.

  • Bug - If a synonym term contains multiple words, each word is treated as a separate synonym. For example, if you define “time piece” as a synonym of “watch”, both “time” and “piece” are treated as synonyms of watch.
