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.

pxFeed replaces pxContextFeed and pxActivityFeed Pulse gadgets

Valid from Pega Version 7.4

The pxContextFeed and pxActivityFeed gadgets have been replaced by the pxFeed gadget to integrate the functionalities of viewing and posting messages in the Pulse activity feed. You can include this gadget within a section or harness across your application, for example, in the dashboard of the Case Manager portal, to display the activity feed. You must add the latest UI Kit ruleset to ensure that your application uses the pxFeed gadget instead of the pxContextFeed and pxActivityFeed gadgets to generate the activity feed.

For more information, see Pulse gadget and custom APIs.

Survey rules are deprecated

Valid from Pega Version 7.4

Surveys that were created prior to version 7.4 of Pega Platform are now deprecated. As a best practice, recreate your survey by using the Survey Management landing page, and then reuse questions or question pages from your survey library.

For more information about creating surveys, see Improved survey authoring.

Questionnaire shape replaces Survey shape in legacy flows

Valid from Pega Version 7.4

In flows that reference deprecated surveys, the Questionnaire shape has replaced the Survey shape. Although legacy surveys continue to function in this release, update your flows to use the Survey shape because it provides the latest survey capabilities, and deprecated features are not supported.

For more information about the new survey authoring experience, see Improved survey authoring.

Limited question and answer formats in new surveys

Valid from Pega Version 7.4

Complex questions and some answer formats for simple questions, such as attachment, are not supported by the new surveys that you create. Although you can create stand-alone questions in your survey library that use these formats, you can add these questions to legacy surveys only.

For more information about supported answer formats, see Answer formats for questions in a survey.
