PIM queries tied to images were functional in Prod for our customer until the most recent release in May 2022 (from version 9.10.10 to 9.10.21).
One example, the query "Products without images has been configured like this:
And now returns all products, even products with images:
We are using Image Patterns:
In DEV (where this is reproducible), we clicked "CONVERT FROM DEPRECATED IMAGE FEATURES" on the settings. After clicking, Initially the backend page was missing the Main Product & Variant Product fields (which required us to edit GlobalSettings by adding the UseImprovedPatterns tag. Once we did this, we recycled the app pool & re-ran product indexes and the Main Product & Variant Product fields finally displayed):
In Dev we have then tried every field option with "image" (including Product Images (System.String) which previously worked in production, the ImagePattern options, the small image), but the PIM query still returns products with image files in the ProductImages folder.
How do we make these queries function properly with image patterns again?
