The following performance related features and improvements are part of the 1711 release
- Full Create for Service Tickets – Ability to create service tickets in one step instead of two thereby reducing end to end time for the user interaction
- Faster home page load times with improved authorization checks
- Performance improvements in search
- Improvements in workflow
Please read on for more details.
1. Full Create Option for Service Ticket
(Please note this feature is released in beta)
Before the availability of “Full Create” in 1711 (beta), creating service tickets involved two steps – SAVE and OPEN. As shown in the screenshot below (yellow highlighted box). Each of the two steps needed almost similar execution times (each) to perform the user interaction.
Create Ticket Pre-1711
With 1711 we have introduced a new option to create ticket with full details. Once the screen is filled with ticket details, the ticket is saved in a single step. Therefore since we save an entire step for this process and this results in improvement that is almost twice as before.

2. Improvement in security authorizations for home page
With 1711 all the authorization checks for tiles belonging to the home page associated with the user role are consolidated into one request. Before 1711 each tile in the home page had an independent authorization step thereby adding an overhead for each tile. Typically this step can take anywhere from 1sec to 3secs. Therefore depending on the number of tiles you have on the home page the improvement in performance can be up to 90%.

3. Performance improvements in search
Basic search by ID in the following business objects have been optimized:
- Individual Customers
Therefore we can expect much faster search results in 1711. Improvements in our tests show up to 85% improvement.
Basic search by ID
For searches specifically in Account OVS Search/Type by ID, the improvements are also in the region of up to 85%.

4. Workflow performance improvements
In 1711 workflow has been improved for scheduled events. Prior to 1711, multiple scheduled event rules were evaluated during runtime in the users session therefore adding to the users interaction time. With 1711 when these events for an object are scheduled then even the evaluation filter rules will be processed in background mode thereby not blocking the users interaction.
In this mode we have seen performance improvements up to 10 times over the prior release.
