SaaS price indexing speeds up the time that it takes for price changes to get reflected on a SaaS customer’s website after they have been submitted. This optional module allows merchants with large, complex catalogs, or with multiple websites or customer groups, to process price changes more rapidly and continuously.

Customers using Luma and Adobe Commerce Core GraphQL can install a module that provides Luma and Core GraphQL compatibility and disables the PHP core price indexer:
catalog-adapter is only compatible with 2.4.5. Support for 2.4.4 and 2.4.6 will be released in the near future.
The PHP core price indexer can be re-enabled if needed by a third-party extension or any other reason.
Depending on factors such as product types, price complexity and catalog size, SaaS price indexing may be the right solution for your store. Read over the following limitations and determine if this is a good solution for your site.
Currently, SaaS price indexing supports Simple, Grouped, Virtual, Configurable, and Bundle Dynamic product types.
Support for Downloadable, Gift Cards, and Bundle Fixed product types is coming soon.s
New feeds should be manually synced with the
resync CLI command. Otherwise, the data gets refreshed in the standard sync process. Get more information about the Catalog Sync process.
With currently unsupported product types, wait for full product type support.
