Funnelback patch

  • Released: 2019-05-23

  • Applies to: v15.20.0

  • Internal reference: RNDSUPPORT-2947, RNDSUPPORT-2948, FUN-12728


  • Fixes an issue where jetty stopped logging after deploying knowledge-graph.

  • Fixes an issue where Facebook collections did not update due to the recent Graph API changes.

  • Fixes an issue in the Knowledge Graph widget where the value of the targetUrl query parameter would be truncated if it contained a '?' character.

  • The API fields that are requested from Facebook can now be specified in collection.cfg using the, and facebook.event-fields configuration keys. This should enable future changes to Facebook APIs to be handled without requiring further Funnelback patches.
