Breaking changesedit

  • Operators can now filter on sites in SharePoint Online by using the indexing rule path_template. This change will break existing path_template rules. Operators must prefix all existing path_template rules with /sites/{site-name}. See indexing rules.

New featuresedit

Bug fixesedit

  • The web crawler now uses UTF-8 encoding by default for responses without a specified charset, instead of ISO-8859-1. Adjust the new crawler.http.default_encoding configuration to override this behavior.
  • Addressed a potential SSRF vulnerability for external connector packages by disallowing redirects away from the configured host. Disallowed localhost external URLs for connector packages, unless explicitly configured.
  • GitHub sync failed when there was any empty repository. Solved so sync continues normally.

Known issuesedit

  • App Search users with dev and editor roles do not have access to the web crawler.
