SR-D87188 · Issue 551350

Mentioned user in Pulse correctly converted to hyperlink

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5

In the Interaction portal, mentioning a user in Pulse using @ was not converting the name to the user name with hyperlink for Email Interactions. @ mentions were working as as expected in Phone Interactions. This problem was introduced as part of using OWASP to sanitize HTML user input in Rich Text support, and was due to OWASP converting @ to an HTML entity. To resolve this, the @ will be excepted from HTML conversion.

Performance improvements for opening cases with embedded images

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5

Opening cases containing email interactions was taking an excessive amount of time. This was traced to the use of embedded images, icons, etc, in the message body and signature, and was caused by the pyGetAttachmentsbyCID activity running multiple times due to discussion threads that were duplicated over and over. In some cases, more than 360 calls to the database were seen. This has been resolved by shifting some case opening processes to executing when the listener thread gets the mail, and storing the results in a .pynote property, and a URL will be used to get images instead of embedding them directly to the HTML. If preferred, this can be reverted to the previous behavior by changing the when rule (pyUseCachedHtmlForDisplay) to false.

Optional feature to improve pxETReport performance

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5

Poor performance was seen when using pxETReport. This was caused by the system loading the recent cases widget by looking up all the ET cases within last 30 days, opening each ET case to check if it is from the same pyFrom email address, and then if yes, opening its related service case. On a complex system, this was potentially a slow process. To improve performance, the "Related cases" feature can now be disabled through an overridable 'when' rule.

Improved handling for attachments not using UTF-8 encoding

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5

When an email was received that used a charset encoding other than UTF-8, special characters in the HTML body were not displayed and instead the replacement character was shown. To resolve this, the system will read the encoding from the email rather than use the meta tag, and will add the attachment's HTML encoding information in Data-WorkAttach-File so that the same can be used to process and display the original HTML properly.

Chatbot text starts scroll at top of answer

Resolved in Pega Version 8.2.8

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.

Updates to displaying embedded images in cases

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.4

Sending an email with an embedded image to the email ID associated with the email listener successfully created the interaction case, but the embedded image was not displayed when the case was opened from the work-basket. A rule-not found exception was seen in the tracer for pyGetImageDisplay, the rule responsible for displaying the images in the ET pane. Investigation showed that when URLObfuscation was turned on, the decryption of the URL was not successful because "&" had been encoded to '& amp;'. This has been resolved by calling the activity pyGetImageForDisplay using URLMapping instead. An additional issue was seen with displaying images in the email interaction pane where the additional empty new lines moved the image outside the intended place. This was traced to a customization for the reply area which used the pyHighlightedMessage property and converted newlines to br tags even in HTML mode. To resolve this, pyHighlightedMessage has ben modified to convert newlines to br tags only if the mode is plain text.

Mentioned user in Pulse appears correctly

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.4

When loading user names while using the "@" functionality in a Pulse post, adding or tagging the operator/user in Pulse by entering each letter brought up the list, but when using copy/paste it was not possible to select the desired value from the user.Suggestions list of operators/users. If by chance the user name was selected from the suggested list, the operator ID was added instead of the full name. This has been resolved.

Resolved unneeded chat survey error logging

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.4

After configuring a chat server to do a post chat survey, the post chat survey was correctly served but errors indicating "Cannot find PegaCA-Work-SurveyNPS.Thank you for your feedback. van type Rule-HTML-Paragraph" were logged. This was caused by the method used by the system to distinguish between text and paragraph questions in pyProcessNextStep, and has been resolved by adding additional checks for whether paragraph exists before opening it.

Skip topics from the attachments setting honored

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.4

Topic detection was happening for attachments even when it was disabled in the UI. This issue was traced to pyTopics which were not properly configured by selecting checkboxes in iNLP configuration for Email Channel, and has been resolved.
