8.11.0 release notesedit

Upgrading to Enterprise Search 8.11.0? See Upgrading and migrating.

Read this blog post for more information about upgrading your internal knowledge search (AKA workplace search), to make it an amazing experience for your users!

Breaking changesedit

  • In 8.9.0, we introduced two new configuration settings for connectors (max_concurrent_content_syncs and max_concurrent_access_control_syncs) to allow users to scale content and access control syncs independently from each other. While these settings supersede the existing general max_concurrent_syncs setting, we continued to use max_concurrent_syncs as a deprecated fallback. Starting in 8.11.0, the deprecated and obsolete max_concurrent_syncs setting is no longer recognized. Therefore, users of connector clients must update their Connector Service configuration to replace the max_concurrent_syncs setting with max_concurrent_content_syncs and max_concurrent_access_control_syncs.

New featuresedit

Since 8.10.0, new self-managed connector clients do not require the Enterprise Search service. If you’re upgrading from 8.9.x or earlier to 8.10.0+, refer to these migration instructions.

Bug fixesedit

  • Fixed a bug introduced in 8.10.0 where native connectors were missing configuration fields required for document-level security (DLS).

Known issuesedit

  • Enabling DLS for the OneDrive connector will cause a significant performance degradation, because the API calls to the data source required for this functionality are rate limited. This impacts the speed at which your content can be retrieved.
