INC-133026 · Issue 578278

Updated Pulse email attachment handling

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.3

After updating from 8.3.2 to 8.3.3, the Audit Trail displayed the entire contents of an email. In some instances, attaching a .txt file caused the file extension to be displayed twice. This was due to pyNote being used to create email file posts, and has been resolved by updating the implementation to use pyEmail instead of pyNote. Backward compatibility has been ensured by still considering pyNote for older emails and changing when emails open.

In order to present an improved interface for customers interfacing with chatbots, the code has been updated so that the recipient's chat scroll will remain at the top of an answer that would scroll off the screen.

Rules updated to handle Outlook change that displayed multiple/duplicate email responses

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.3

In Pega Email Triage case, all the replies were displayed along with the original email body, meaning for each and every reply, Pega showed the original email body and duplicated the data. This was traced to an update made by Microsoft in the Selector function of Outlook Windows, and has been resolved by updating the rules 'PyExtractLatestReplyFromHTML' and 'pyRichTextEmailHistorySelector' to work with this change.

Interaction case closing updated

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.3

Utility nodes were reporting the error "Unable to close interaction case WORK-CHANNEL-INTERACTION - XXXXX." This was caused by the pxCloseExpiredInteractions activity used in ProcessEngine agent throwing a null pointer error when the Data-Channel-User has reference to a deleted interaction case. The handling for CloseExpiredInteractions has been updated to resolve this issue.

Email history will be stripped from case replies

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.4

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.

INC-143320 · Issue 602282

Support added for email addresses with hyphen in domain name

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.4

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.

INC-145425 · Issue 600774

New email template added to include full message history

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.4

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.

INC-146544 · Issue 604495

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

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.4

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.

Email Triage properly maps attachments to case

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.4

Attachments from emails coming in via the Email channel were not being attached as expected to both the Email Triage case and the case generated from that. Instead, attachments were only being added to the triage case. This was traced to the pyAttachments property not being properly updated for attachment to the generated case, and has been resolved.

INC-150367 · Issue 606030

Double quotes escaped in entity mapping

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.4

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.
