INC-143320 · Issue 602281

Support added for email addresses with hyphen in domain name

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.5

When attempting to enter a email with a hyphen '-' in the domain part of an email ID (test_ab@test-email.com), the reply button was getting disabled. This was caused by the regex validation implemented in the "pzValidateEmailAddress" (Work-Channel-Triage-Email) standard activity not covering all the possible cases. To resolve this, regex has been changed to instead use a platform-provided rule to ValidateEmailAddress.

Email history will be stripped from case replies

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.2

When sending an email reply to a case, the entire email history (all previous emails in the email chain) was attached to the case as part of the reply.To resolve this, updates have been made so the system will strip history only when it's a follow-up mail. In addition, an issue with duplicate attachments has been corrected, and attachments from trailing mail will not be copied to a new post.

New email template added to include full message history

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.2

Whenever a reply was sent from the email triage case, the outbound email sent only the actual reply along with the original email and latest reply only, skipping all remaining replies from email. For example, if there were 5 replies from case, replying 5th time generated an outbound email that contained only 5th reply (actual / current), original reply (which created the service case) and the latest reply (reply 4 in this case) and skipped reply 1 and reply 2. To resolve this, a new Outlook-style template has been added for use in replies that will include all of the previous exchanges.

Updated handling for unexpected character set in non-UTF-8 email

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.2

After upgrade, the listener properly created a case from an email, but the space character was being replaced by ? in the inbound emails. Investigation showed the messages did not appear properly in the UI if the email was sent using any encoding other than Unicode (UTF-8) and it had a special character set. To resolve this, the system will remove the attachment type which includes the charset.

Double quotes escaped in entity mapping

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.2

A usecase where the BOTS created the triage cases from the emails and pushed it to the Workgroup had an intermittent problem where the screen would freeze and no actions could be performed. perform any action on the same. Investigation showed this occurred when the entity text contained double quotes which is caused JSON to break on the client side. This generated an exception during rendering, and other onload scripts failed on load and blocked the entire thread. To resolve this, the system will now avoid the JSON break by escaping double quotes in entity mapping.

SR-D32991 · Issue 504129

Email Discussion Thread retains Formatting

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.1

CSS styles were not being retained in the discussion thread when replying to InboundCorrespondence cases. This was traced to a missing value in Param.latestReply activity pzCreateExternalPostFromMail, and has been resolved by setting an initial plain text value to the param.latestReply before it is set with the HTML value. This prevents having a blank parameter value if the incoming HTML value is empty.

SR-D28342 · Issue 504970

ChatMashup loading issue with IDP resolved

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.1

When using a harness containing chat scripts via Mashup that called an activity to set parameters, attempting to launch the Mashup from an external application failed on the first attempt: an incorrect URL was generated and the activity was not triggered, resulting in an empty harness. The second attempt to launch the Mashup worked as expected. This was seen when using an IDP initiated Login with query string - pyActivity= classname.ActivityName, and there was a workaround to use SP initiated login or to use the activity URL directly on the IDP portal. Investigation showed that the resourcePath was coming as http in SSL enabled system, but the reqURI was still https. To correct this, the system has been updated so that if the reqContextURI starts with https and the requestURL starts with http, then the requestURL will be converted to https.

Removed redundant Microsoft Outlook email interaction chain

Resolved in Pega Version 8.6.2

When opening an email interaction case, the email editor user interface area showed the complete email chain of the email for every new message that came in related to the case. This was traced to the difference in the selectors that various email clients use to construct a response to an email with email history in it, and has been resolved by updating the selectors for Microsoft Outlook in pyRichTextEmailHistorySelector so no conversation is repeated when using that client.

INC-176881 · Issue 669701

Resource added to extract email threading code from message body

Resolved in Pega Version 8.6.2

In some scenarios the case ID was not being sent in the subject of email replies as expected, and the secure tracking code was part of the email body instead. That caused replies back to the email thread to create a new email interaction case instead of properly threading the new message into the conversation. Investigation traced this to some email clients removing space after the tracking code. To resolve this, an update has been made which will extract the tracking code from email-content html if it is found and otherwise fallback to the email body.
