Funnelback patch

  • Released: 2018-07-12

  • Applies to: v15.14.0

  • Internal reference: SUPPORT-2692, SUPPORT-2704


Fixes an issue where configuring a site profile without http basic credentials would cause empty username/password authorization headers to be sent by the web crawler.

Removes a complexity limit in contextual navigation which applied to the entire query rather than only to the terms relevant for contextual navigation. This allows contextual navigation to work on complex queries, such as those generated by facets.
