Request for Feature Enhancement (RFE) Summary:

 Avoid cyclic references of the experience fragments OR Show warning message of cyclic references of the experience fragments

Use-case:

 Avoid cyclic references of the experience fragments to impact overall instance performance

Current/Experienced Behavior:

 We had multiple critical situations on Production recently where a misconfiguration by author (causes Cyclic reference) started having huge impact on overall instance performance, taking almost 100% of CPU as well. Publishing the same page resulted in showing service outage exception (Referencetoodeep in the logs) page to the end user.

Improved/Expected Behavior:

 If author configures cyclic reference of the experience fragment, there will be a warning message OR cyclic reference cannot be configured

Environment Details (AEM version/service pack, any other specifics if applicable):

 AEM as a could service &  
AEM Release: 2023.3.11382.20230315T073850Z

Customer-name/Organization name:

 Vergölst GMBH (Continental Reifen Deutschland GmbH)
