SR-D54120 · Issue 542260

Improved handling for attachments not using UTF-8 encoding

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.1

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.

Performance improvements for opening cases with embedded images

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.1

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.

isAuthenticated checks trimmed for Performance Improvement

Resolved in Pega Version 8.2.7

In order to improve performance, a duplicate check of pxIsRepositoryAuthenticated has been removed from the Function Rule.

INC-127859 · Issue 564619

Email image retrieval switched to Lazy Load

Resolved in Pega Version 8.2.7

In email, multiple images being loaded at once resulted in a performance impact. To resolve this, the fetching of inline images has been modified to use Lazy Load optimization which will retrieve file content from S3 storage on a need basis.

INC-127891 · Issue 564726

Added check for redirects when getting images from S3

Resolved in Pega Version 8.2.7

When retrieving images from S3 storage, a 303 redirect status response code was shown. Investigation showed that using a public URL caused the redirects, and this has been resolved by adding an AG hash while fetching images via an activity.

SR-D87412 · Issue 563227

Support added for multi-language email parsing

Resolved in Pega Version 8.2.7

Parsing an email body for different languages was causing performance issues. To resolve this, an enhancement has been added to support email IVA in seven languages, to use this, override the Work-Channel-Triage.pyParseReplyMail activity and add the required languages in the given parameter.

SR-D92688 · Issue 551340

Optional feature to improve pxETReport performance

Resolved in Pega Version 8.2.7

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.
