Load Optimization of AdminSpecificPriceRule Controller in Prestashop

Catalog Price Rules is a widely used Prestashop tool for mass creation of discounts. But if you have a lot of features and feature_values associated with them, one day this function can get unavailable for you. Let’s check why exactly you won’t be able to use it.

1Load Optimization

The reason is hidden in the AdminSpecificPriceRuleControllerCore::renderForm method, and more particularly here:

The thing is while loading the form, Prestashop tries to load all features and their values because Catalog Price Rules allows using Features as one of the conditions for a discount.

2Load Optimization

We solved this problem using asynchronous load of Feature Values.

To do so made a few corrections:


2. The FeatureValue::getFeatureValueWithLang() class is a new method that gets values for a particular Feature.

class FeatureValue extends FeatureValueCore

3.  The SpecificPriceRule::getConditions() class
