Funnelback patch

  • Released: 2019-04-12

  • Applies to: v15.20.0

  • Internal reference: RNDSUPPORT-2907 RNDSUPPORT-2925


  • Makes the funnelback-graph service run as the Funnelback user on Unix.

  • Fixes an issue that prevents the funnelback-graph service from restarting when requested.

Please note that if Funnelback is upgraded to a new version without this patch being applied then the funnelback-graph service may trigger authentication errors until the service is forced to restart by rebooting the server or manually killing the service process.
