PK72350: ADD OPTION TO REMOVE DUPLICATE RESULTS FROM MENUS

 

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Menu results may contain several results that represent the same
    piece of content. For example, several content links to the same
    content may appear in the results for a single menu. It may be
    desirable to filter these duplicate results, to leave only one.
    This fix introduces a new request parameter,
    allowDuplicateResults, which can be used to define whether the
    menu will display duplicate results.

Problem summary

  • Summary: Menu results are not unique
    Menu results may include multiple results representing the same
    piece of content as the results can include any number of
    content and content links.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This fix introduces a new configuration property to define
    whether menus should allow duplicate results. If the property is
    set to false, duplicates will be filtered from the menu results
    prior to rendering.
    The property can be set either at a global level or a
    per-request level:
     - To configure the global setting (for all menus), set the
    following in WCMConfigService.properties:
           menu.allowDuplicateResults=false
       Valid values are true or false.
     - To override the global setting, add a request parameter to
    the request that renders the menu:
           allowDuplicateResults=false
       Valid values are true or false.
    
    Limitation - Duplicate results will only be filtered when the
    menu cache is active. If duplicate results appear in menus even
    though the allowDuplicateResults property has been set to false,
    increase the value of the menu.cache.max.items property in
    WCMConfigService.properties to ensure the menu cached it being
    utilized.
