I wanted to disable the frontend plugin "product_identities_extender" from the module ConfigurableProduct, because this plugin generates too big headers for apache servers. Which results in the known issue Magento 2.3.1 - Issue with catalog search when using php7.2-fpm

I tried to add a module /MyVendor/MyModule to not overwrite Magento core code. In /etc/frontend/di.xml

<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
    <type name="Magento\Catalog\Model\Product">
        <plugin name="product_identities_extender" disabled="true"/>

I'm not sure why the plugin wasn't disabled. Do I need something else to disable a Magento plugin?

  • Did you get this to work? If so would you be able to share the code of your module? I am looking for the same solution since I don't prefer editing Magento core code.
