Rollback Instructions

In case you need to revert to version 4.78.0, run the following script since we've added new AI Copilot configuration fields for the Endpoints.

  1. Establish a connection to the MongoDB instance within your cluster and execute the database script:

    kubectl exec -it -n mongodb mongodb-0 -- bash
    mongo -u $MONGODB_ROOT_USER -p $MONGODB_ROOT_PASSWORD --authenticationDatabase admin
    
    use service-resources;
    db.endpoints.updateMany({},{$unset:{"handoverSettings.agentAssistSettings.copilotType":""}});
    
  2. Execute the Helm Chart rollback.

Cognigy Voice Gateway

  • Add VG_DISABLE_DIAL_PAI_HEADER to feature-server StatefulSet and Deployment. It can be controlled via .Values.featureServer.disableDialPaiHeader. The default value is false.
  • Add PRIVATE_IP_ONLY to feature-server StatefulSet and Deployment, and sbc-sip StatefulSet and DaemonSet. It can be controlled via .Values.drachtio.privateIpOnly. The default value is false.
  • Rename JAMBONES_EAGERLY_PRE_CACHE_AUDIO to VG_EAGERLY_PRE_CACHE_AUDIO in the feature-server StatefulSet and Deployment.
  • Add ENABLE_PING_OPTIONS to the vg-webapp deployment.
  • Add .extraEnvVars to all containers of a template. Optionally, specify a list of extra environment variables to be added to the container. Containers:
    • api-ban
    • api-server
    • billing-app
    • drachtio
    • feature-server
    • freesSWITCH
    • heplify-server
    • homer
    • rtp-engine
    • rtp-engine-sidecar
    • sbc-call-router
    • sbc-inbound
    • sbc-outbound
    • sbc-sip-sidecar
    • test-call-manager
    • webapp
      Example:
      myService:
        extraEnvVars:
          - name: FOO
            value: "bar"

  • Add a new environment variable to feature-server to control the trimming of trailing silence for Microsoft TTS services. By default, the trimming is enabled and VG_TTS_TRIM_SILENCE_DISABLE_BY_ACC_SID is not set. If you want to add an account sid to the ignore list, add VG_TTS_TRIM_SILENCE_DISABLE_BY_ACC_SID to the extraEnvVars property:
    featureServer:
      extraEnvVars:
        - name: VG_TTS_TRIM_SILENCE_DISABLE_BY_ACC_SID
          value: "<account_sid1>,<account_sid2>,..."
