Error description

  • When catalog entries and categories are returned as
    recommendations in an e-Marketing Spot, an entitlement check is
    done to ensure the customer is entitled to view the catalog
    entries and categories. In many circumstances, this entitlement
    check is unnecessary. For example, in a B2C store, customers are
     typically entitled to the entire catalog.  Additionally, when
    the storefront loads the information to display a catalog entry,
     an entitlement check is performed again. Since the entitlement
    check has a performance impact, it is preferable to turn off the
     entitlement check when it is not required.
