Error description

  • An e-Marketing Spot can be configured to specify an exact number
    of recommendations to return.  This is not occurring for
    content recommendations when the DM_ActivityOrder flag is set to
     true to cause the marketing runtime to return the
    recommendations in the exact order specified in the activities
    (do not group product, category, or content recommendations
    together).
    
    The following steps illustrate how to reproduce the problem:
    
    1.  Create a web activity to return two content recommendations
    2.  In the e-Marketing Spot JSP, have the following
    configuration:
                                           <wcf:param
    name="DM_ActivityOrder" value="true" />
    3.  In the page including the e-Marketing Spot, set it to return
    only one recommendation
                                            <c:param
    name="numberContentToDisplay" value="1"/>
    4.  Activate the activity, and view the e-Marketing Spot on the
    storefront.
    
    Observed results: The e-Marketing Spot will display both content
    recommendations.
    Expected results: Only the first content recommendation should
    display in the e-Marketing Spot.
