getDistinctValuesForProperty API bypasses index to query source



Pega Marketing utilizes the getDistinctValuesForProperty API to allow Distinct Values indexes to pre-calculate distinct values for certain properties and speed up retrieval of these values.

When the Distinct Value query is unable to match the filter passed in the pre-aggregated index table, then it queries the source table to calculate these results. This allows for accuracy. However, this results in performance degradation when the target table is large.
