Funnelback patch

  • Released: 2018-09-26

  • Applies to: v15.12.0

  • Internal reference: SUPPORT-2722


parent_group Facebook events field has been removed since it requires escalated permissions. On some Facebook collections, this caused crawling of events to fail.

Affected files

  • lib/java/all/funnelback-social-media.jar


  • (Windows) Stop currently running crawls.

  • Stop the Jetty web server and the Funnelback daemon.

  • Deploy the provided files on top of an existing install, backing up all replaced files.

  • Start the Jetty web server and the Funnelback daemon.

  • The conf/<collection>/custom_gather.groovy of each Facebook collection that are failing to update due to Facebook API changes should be updated to have the content provided in share/custom_collection_templates/custom_gather.groovy.facebook. The customer will need to provide a never-expiring page access token to replace the app access token.

  • (Windows) Start crawls as needed.
