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.

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.

Handling added for response command beginning with "call"

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.5

There was an issue if a response command in a web chatbot channel started with the word "call". This was due to the storage and handling of the commands in the decision table. There was a workaround of avoiding the use of "call" to start a command, but the issue has been resolved by adding quotes around the decision table result to support this response command structure.

INC-170135 · Issue 652522

Rich HTML handling added for outbound email

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.5

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.

INC-173193 · Issue 660938

Resolved exception from isArchived

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.5

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.

INC-178990 · Issue 663786

Added handling for reloading portal while ChatBot is active

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.5

An issue was seen with UI rendering when a customer tried to reload the portal where the chatbot is deployed. Investigation showed that this was caused by the screen going to pyCreate harness instead of ChatPerform harness due tot he unexpected refresh, and has been resolved by updating the handling for the Chat Work page and the business case so that pyWorkPage is always Work-Channel-Chat.

INC-179722 · Issue 659283

Added handling for legacy HTML formatting in Email Manager Bot

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.5

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.
