Funnelback patch

  • Released: 2015-10-15

  • Applies to: v14.2.3

  • Internal reference: FUN-7784 SUPPORT-1917 FUN-7692


Fixes issues with the session features with long metadata names and metadata values longer than 4096 characters.

Affected files

  • web/webapps/funnelback-publicui.war: Truncate long metadata values on save.

  • lib/java/all/publicui-core.jar: Update the DB schema to support long metadata names.


  • Deploy the provided files on top of an existing install.

  • The schema of the database storing the session information needs to be upgraded. To do so, run $SEARCH_HOME/tools/groovy/bin/groovy $SEARCH_HOME/bin/setup/update-session-db.groovy after deploying the files. This script does a dry-run by default, use the --apply option to apply the changes. If using an external database, refer to the documentation and ensure the right JDBC parameters are passed to this script.

  • Restart Funnelback’s Jetty web server.

  • As patches are cumulative, apply deployment instructions from previous patches.
