Funnelback patch

  • Released: 2019-06-12

  • Applies to: v15.20.0

  • Internal reference: RNDSUPPORT-2973, FUN-12598, RNDSUPPORT-2976, RNDSUPPORT-2974


  • Fixes an issue where the browser was displaying a mixed-content error when the Knowledge Graph API sometimes returned URLs with mixed protocols.

  • Fixes an issue where the Knowledge Graph widget returned a cross-origin resource sharing policy error. The Knowledge Graph API now supplies Access-Control-Allow-Origin headers.

  • Fixes an issue where upgrading user from an older version of Funnelback would override sec.faceted-navigation from yes to no.

  • ( On unix only, run chown -R search:search $SEARCH_HOME/databases/neo4j/ $SEARCH_HOME/log/neo4j as root to fix file ownership replacing search with your funnelback user’s username if you used a different one.

  • ( Restart the Funnelback server to ensure any prior funnelback-graph service is terminated.

  • Start the Jetty web server

  • ( Perform an update of knowledge graph on any applicable collections to ensure "mention" relationships that reference themselves are removed.

  • ( As wcag was deprecated in version 15.12 it is recommended to switch to using its replacement by editing collection.cfg to have 'wcag.check=false', remove FAChecker from 'filter.classes=' and set 'accessibility-auditor.check=true'. The wcag check may be completely removed from future versions.
