Funnelback patch

  • Released: 2017-12-22

  • Applies to: v15.12.0

  • Internal reference: SUPPORT-2561 SUPPORT-2563


Pattern analyser will overwrite rather than append to its log.

Changes the Modern UI sessions such that they no longer use J2EE sessions and always uses the cookie that was set by ui.modern.session.set_userid_cookie. That option is now removed and a cookie is always set only when sessions are enabled. This reduces disk and CPU load.
