Chatbot text starts scroll at top of answer

Updates to displaying embedded images in cases

Resolved in Pega Version 8.6.1

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.

Email bot updated to handle negative and positive feedback on the same text

Resolved in Pega Version 8.6.1

When positive and negative training was done on the same piece of text, text extraction by Email Bot failed. For example, when using the sentence. “John Smith plays cricket”, the bot detects “John” as person name. If user wants to train the bot to detect “John Smith” as the entity, the user needs to first remove “John” and build the model, and then select “John Smith” and build the model again. In this case, the email bot never again detects “John Smith” as person name due to the negative feedback given for “John”. This was traced to the entities having same the startIndex/endIndex, and has been resolved by removing entities of the same modelName which have the pyIsRemoved property as true so that multiple entity models are detected on the same word.

Rich HTML handling added for outbound email

Resolved in Pega Version 8.6.1

The HTML content was visible in the received email when replying from the email pane in the existing email interaction. This has been resolved by adding logic to handle rich HTML for outbound email.

Resolved exception from isArchived

Resolved in Pega Version 8.6.1

After update, the message "ERROR - Could not retrieve the database time" was seen. This was traced to the interactions of the isArchived API with a version of Oracle, and has been resolved by adding code to skip the isArchived() API call if pzIsPegaCloud is set to false.

Removed unnecessary commit in pyGetAttachmentsByCids

Resolved in Pega Version 8.6.1

Attempting to reply to inbound emails generated the error "This action is not allowed as it is outside the current transaction". Investigation showed a commit was occurring for pygetattachmentsbycids even when there was no change in attachment, and this interfered with the subsequent transactions and resulted in the Transaction id mismatch issue. To resolve this, the commit has been removed and the system has been updated to save only when needed for backwards compatibility.

INC-179722 · Issue 659282

Added handling for legacy HTML formatting in Email Manager Bot

Resolved in Pega Version 8.6.1

When implementing Email Manager Bot features, pyBody fields were removing the additional spaces and causing the NLP model to not extract the correct data. Investigation showed HTML formatting from older version of Microsoft Outlook created nbsp; instead of space. This has been resolved by ensuring nbsp is replaced with spaces before calling JSoup clean.

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.
