Our software consists of two parts - the engine and the API. Release notes for new features, improvements, and bug fixes will show under the Engine Release Notes. Release notes for updates to the API input and output structure will show under the API Release Notes.

These release notes are for Sovren's SaaS offering. If you're looking for self-hosted release notes go here.

AI Matching

Added a restriction for Match by Criteria. To enable Match by Criteria on your account, please contact

We made the boolean connectors (AND, OR, and NOT) in the FilterExpression.SearchExpression case insensitive. For example, you can now search for "java and c#" as opposed to having to specify "java AND c#".

Updated the logic for boolean search fields (IsAuthor, HasPatents, IsMilitary, IsPublicSpeaker, HasSecurityCredentials, IsMilitary) to only support filtering when passing true for those fields. Previously, passing a value of false for any of these fields would filter out results that had the specified criteria. Now, passing false or null for any of these fields will not filter the results any further.

We added wildcard support to the following fields on the FilterCriteria object in Matching and Searching (for more information refer to the documentation):

  • Skills
  • JobTitles
  • Certifications
  • SchoolNames
  • DegreeNames
  • Employers
  • SecurityCredentials
