Required Oracle optimization parameter

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.3

To optimize performance, set the Oracle parameter optimizer_index_cost_adj to a value between 20 and 25. If this value is not set, the system can run exceedingly slowly, potentially blocking users from login.

Synchronized database and application server settings

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.3

Configure your database and application server to use the same time zone and character encoding to avoid conflicts.

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.

Column Populator utility documentation out of date for prior versions

Valid from Pega Version 7.2

The documentation for using the Column Populator utility to populate newly exposed database columns is out of date for Pega 7 Platform versions prior to 7.2. For all Pega 7 versions, refer to the Pega 7.2 help documentation for instructions about how to use this utility.

Child case queries performance can be slow

Valid from Pega Version 7.2

Some customers have reported that performance is slow when they execute queries on child cases. This issue is often indicated by PEGA0005 (query time exceeded limit) alerts that can be correlated to these queries in the logs. To resolve the issue, add a database index to each of your work tables by using a multicolumn index on the pxCoverInsKey, pxObjClass, and pyStatusWork columns.

See Performance improvements for child case queries.

Verify ML Readiness error: Upgrades from Pega 7.1.0 through 7.1.8 do not replace nonversioned rules

Valid from Pega Version 7.2

Upgrading from any Pega 7 Platform version between Pega 7.1 and Pega 7.1.8 to Pega 7.2 does not automatically replace nonversioned rules. If you revalidated and saved a Pega 7.1.x rule after the timestamp on the Pega 7.2 version of the rule, upgrading to Pega 7.2 does not overwrite the saved rule. You might see either of the following behaviors:

  • The upgrade fails with the following error message:
    Verify ML Readiness
  • The upgrade succeeds, but you might be unable to open changed rule forms.

If the upgrade fails, see the Pega 7 Platform Upgrade Guide to force the upgrade.

This known issue does not affect Pega 7.1.9. After the upgrade has finished, apply Hotfix 27288. For information about obtaining and applying hotfixes, see Hotfix Manager.

Upgrades and updates from Pega 7.3 on MSSQL fail with column name mismatch

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

This failure applies only to upgrades and updates from Pega® Platform 7.3 on systems running Microsoft® SQL Server®. In Pega 7.3, the capitalization for the column name pc_work_agile.pzPvStream is incorrect. The correct capitalization is pzPVStream. To prevent upgrade and update failures, before you upgrade or update, run the following command from the Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) to rename the column:

EXEC sp_rename ‘data-schema-name.pc_work_agile.pzPvStream', 'pzPVStream', 'COLUMN'

Reports on pc_work_agile table fail in Pega 7.3 on MSSQL

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

This failure applies only to Pega® Platform 7.3 on systems running Microsoft SQL Server. In Pega 7.3, the capitalization for the column name pc_work_agile.pzPvStream is incorrect. The correct capitalization is pzPVStream. To prevent reporting failures on the pc_work_agile table, run the following command from the Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) to rename the column after you install Pega 7.3:

EXEC sp_rename ‘data-schema-name.pc_work_agile.pzPvStream', 'pzPVStream', 'COLUMN'

Nodes in a cluster do not see each other for Docker, multiple VMs, or multiple NICs setup

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

If a cluster is set up in Docker, or uses separate virtual machines (VMs) or multiple network interfaces, you must set the public address in the prconfig.xml file for each Pega® Platform node to avoid problems with node clustering. Add the <env name=”identification/cluster/public/address” value=”IP address”/> setting to specify the public address that is used by each node.

Security fields in JFrog Artifactory repository do not work

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

The fields in the Security section of the JFrog Artifactory repository rule form, including the Secure protocol field, the Truststore field, and the Keystore field, were not implemented. In the Pega™ Platform 7.3 Designer Studio help, disregard the optional Security section in step 4 of the Configuring a JFrog Artifactory or Amazon S3 repository connection help topic, and disregard the optional Security section in step 5 of the Creating a repository configuration help topic in the 7.3.1 Designer Studio help.
