And many others…

Security Improvements:

Magento 2.4.7 is more secure than its previous versions as there are several fixes and enhancements. The earlier versions (Magento 2.4.6, 2.4.5, and 2.4.4) haven’t reported any attacks so far.

Here are the important security improvements of Magento 2.4.7:

  • Prefixes and character restrictions are now present in non-generated cache keys for blocks.
  • Limitations on the quantity of automatically produced coupon codes to avoid overloading the system.
  • For high randomness, the Admin URL generating mechanism is optimized by default.
  • A new configuration feature for the full-page cache is intended to reduce the dangers connected to particular endpoints.
  • On payment pages, support for Subresource Integrity (SRI) has been implemented for script integrity checks.
  • Modifications to the Content Security Policy (CSP) to ensure adherence to PCI 4.0 specifications.
  • Native rate limitation on payment data sent via GraphQL and REST APIs.
  • For email availability, the default behaviour of the REST endpoint and GraphQL query changes.

Page Builder & PWA Studio:

With Magento 2.4.7, you will get support for PWA Studio version 14.0 which makes content management easier and a consistent user experience. Several bugs in the PWA Studio have also been fixed with this update. There are certain improvements in the Page Builder, such as:

  • Maintenance of aspect ratio for visual consistency
  • Less content creation issues with better error handling
  • Parent products are present in product sliders for comprehensive displays
  • In email templates, the HTML content is rendered properly which ensures consistent messaging
  • Text styling preservation for cohesive presentations
  • Issues of compatibility and rendering across browsers are now resolved
  • Accurate file size information is now displayed in image previews, and the Media Gallery appropriately tags image usage.

GraphQL Improvements:

There are many improvements in GraphQL which are worth mentioning. Let’s go through them one by one:

  • Improvement in Parser performance of GraphQL
  • The caching capabilities especially for PWA pages have been improved
  • Better support for custom attributes using Enriched API data.
  • Order Cancellation Support
  • Cacheable GraphQL query resolvers
  • Order items with Product images for more efficient loading
  • Now, the clearCart mutation effectively removes the items from a designated shopping cart.
  • The clearCart mutation has superseded the deprecated clearCustomerCart mutation.
  • The deprecated createEmptyCart mutation has been replaced with the createGuestCart mutation.

The application server of GraphQL also helps Magento or Adobe Commerce to manage requests from GraphQL API easily. It collects request information so the system isn’t required to reload information at every instance. This improves the speed of the system by an average of 30% and utilizes more resources effectively.

Note: This feature is only present in Adobe Commerce and not in Magento open-source. That’s why we always recommend going for Adobe Commerce instead of the free open-source version.

Adobe Commerce Extension Meta Package:

There are extension metapackages present in both Magento open-source 2.4.7 and Adobe Commerce 2.4.7. Updating extensions in conjunction with core platform changes is made easier by these meta packages, which incorporate specific extensions automatically when you upgrade Magento versions.


Here is the list of extensions that are present in the package of Magento Open Source 2.4.7 and Adobe Commerce 2.4.7:
