ClosedConfiguration Cache

Configuration Cache is a highly recommended (but optional) feature of CPQ Cloud. Support for Configuration Cache can be enabled by the System FullAccess user.

The purpose of Configuration Cache is to store Configuration information in memory to improve performance. Since trips to the database server are avoided using the cache, this is a highly optimal solution for most implementations. When Configuration Cache functionality is enabled, all areas of the system that call Configuration methods should be quicker to access after the cache is built.

    By default, the Configuration Cache is disabled for all new product families. Once enabled, Configuration changes will only be reflected once they are deployed.

When Configuration Cache is enabled, then all changes to catalog data must be deployed to ensure that the cache is synchronized with Configuration data.

If changes are made to rules, products or flows within a Product Family and the Product Family is not deployed, the user will be working off of a cache that is out of date with the actual catalog data.

For information on deploying Product Families, see Setting Up Product Families.
