WSDL generation error prevents invocation of SOAP services

Valid from Pega Version 8.4.2

Status

A Known Issue was introduced in the 8.4.2 Pega Platform patch release, which impacts both upgrades and new installations of that version.

Description

Due to changes introduced in the SOAP functionality for the case-mismatch error in SR-D98509/INC-119725, the WSDL is being generated for SOAP services with an incorrectly-capitalized element, which prevents the service from being invoked.  The element should be “name” instead of “Name”.

Workaround

Clients must perform the following workaround after they define a new SOAP connector in Pega Platform:

  1. To download the WSDL from Pega Platform:
    1. After using the SOAP Wizard (Dev Studio > Configure > Integration > Services > Service Wizard) the WSDL URL is shown at the bottom right of the Dev Studio screen.
    2. Click the URL to display the XML.
    3. Save the WSDL file to your local system.
  2. In the text editor of your choice, modify "Name" to "name" in every <element “name” = … > tag in the WDSL.
  3. Save your changes to the local file.
  4. To reload the WSDL into Pega Platform:
    1. In Dev Studio, open the Configure menu.
    2. Select Integration > Connectors > Create SOAP Integration.
    3. In the New SOAP integration wizard, select Upload WSDL from File.
    4. Complete the upload using the wizard prompts.

This is a design-time issue, not a run-time issue; therefore, clients only have to perform this workaround process once. Existing SOAP services should not be impacted; however, if clients modify an existing SOAP service definition by re-running the wizard, clients must reapply the workaround for Pega Platform to recognize the SOAP definition changes.  

Resolution

This issue will be addressed in the Pega Platform Patch Release 8.4.3.  Clients who upgrade to that version or later should not see this issue.

Geolocation tracking requires browser permission

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.6

When the geolocation tracking feature is enabled, a Map it link appears next to each requestor entry in the audit trail. When you click a link for the first time, the browser displays a notification asking whether you want to permit tracking. Make your yes/no selection in the prompt. Do not click "X" to close it, as doing so may render the session unresponsive. Refresh the browser if necessary and make your selection.

Geolocation tracking Map it links do not appear

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.6

If geolocation tracking is enabled, the first time you create a case in the first browser session, the Map it links do not appear next to the initial audit trail entries. When you submit the first flow action, the links appear next to all subsequent entries.

Node description cannot match application server node name

Valid from Pega Version 6.3 SP1

A node's Short Description should not be the same value as the application server node name. If the node's Short Description is changed to be the same value as the application server node name, then the node description is automatically changed back to the original value after a system restart.
