  • Fusion now supports Kubernetes 1.24. This applies to GKE, AKS, and EKS. It also applies to Rancher (RKE) and OpenShift 4 versions that are compatible with Kubernetes 1.24.

  • Fusion now uses a custom Solr image called fusion-solr. This version of Solr is based on Solr 8.11.1 and adds functionality to support Fusion features.

  • Upgraded Fusion to use Tika 2.4.1.

  • Disabled browser autofill in Fusion data source configuration forms to prevent accidentally filling fields incorrectly.

Fusion Connectors

  • A new connector, the Web V2 Connector, is added. This brings our Web connector from the classic framework to our V2 framework.

Predictive Merchandiser

  • Improved UI elements in the Predictive Merchandiser.

Bug Fixes


  • Fixed an issue where pointing a Fusion collection at a Solr collection with a different name breaks queries to solrServer in Javascript stages.

  • Fixed an issue when adding a new Graph security trimming stage; now you can enter a comma-separated list of datasources in Exclude Data Source ID(s) and Inclusive Data Source ID(s) fields with spaces. For example, ds1, ds2, ds3.

  • Fixed an issue where documentation links pointed to Fusion 5.4 version, instead of the currently used version of Fusion.

Fusion Connectors

  • The LDAP ACLs V2 connector is updated to reduce crawl bugs, prevent a false error from reporting when the crawl is stopped, and ensure permissions settings are kept in sync.

  • Fixed an issue with network policies that prevented the Sharepoint Optimized V2 connector plugin from indexing some data.

  • Fixed an issue with the ServiceNow connector where empty fields would cause an error and break the crawl.

Predictive Merchandiser

  • Made the text box size larger to make it easier to enter multiple Boost Queries in the Rules Manager.


  • Removed deprecated NLP Annotator stage from Query Workbench and OpenNLP NER stage from Index Workbench.
