Funnelback patch

  • Released: 2019-09-27

  • Applies to: v15.14.0

  • Internal reference: RNDSUPPORT-3060


  • Improves support for running faceted navigation on extra searches.

  • Adds method 'getEffectiveExtraSearchName()' to the search transaction which gets the name of the extra search this search should be considered to be under. The result of this should be used when modifying a particular extra search. As Funnelback may create extra searches under an existing search, for example for faceted navigation, this could be used to work out if the search transaction should be modified.
