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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Email Discussion Thread retains Formatting

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.1

CSS styles were not being retained in the discussion thread when replying to InboundCorrespondence cases. This was traced to a missing value in Param.latestReply activity pzCreateExternalPostFromMail, and has been resolved by setting an initial plain text value to the param.latestReply before it is set with the HTML value. This prevents having a blank parameter value if the incoming HTML value is empty.

SR-D28342 · Issue 504970

ChatMashup loading issue with IDP resolved

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.1

When using a harness containing chat scripts via Mashup that called an activity to set parameters, attempting to launch the Mashup from an external application failed on the first attempt: an incorrect URL was generated and the activity was not triggered, resulting in an empty harness. The second attempt to launch the Mashup worked as expected. This was seen when using an IDP initiated Login with query string - pyActivity= classname.ActivityName, and there was a workaround to use SP initiated login or to use the activity URL directly on the IDP portal. Investigation showed that the resourcePath was coming as http in SSL enabled system, but the reqURI was still https. To correct this, the system has been updated so that if the reqContextURI starts with https and the requestURL starts with http, then the requestURL will be converted to https.

INC-202878 · Issue 713790

Handling updated for social messaging items with very large embedded images

Resolved in Pega Version 8.7.2

Job scheduler was running out of memory while handling large/multiple files, causing nodes to crash while handling Social Messaging items. Inline images were also not being sent in the ACK email. Investigation traced this to a custom job scheduler and activity used to create PDFs from email communication and send the PDFs to a third-party system. This used the standard Email Triage/PegaSocial functionality for the emails, which were stored as instances of PegaSocial-Message. The custom Job scheduler and activity then leveraged the Data Page D_pxEmailPosts to retrieve the emails in order to harvest the text from the emails. The issue occurred when a number of the emails had multiple or large embedded images in them, meaning the PegaSocial-Message instances are very large. This resulted in the node running out of memory and crashing. To resolve this, code has been added to support inline images in ACK email and the complete message from Pulse will be used instead of the original message as the email body for the ACK email.

Updated URL construction for inline images for better performance

Resolved in Pega Version 8.7.2

System slowness was seen, and inline images were not getting displayed when the case was opened. This has been resolved by modifying pyExtractHtmlFromAttachment to ensure the image source URL is built in a consistent way whether or not there is a cache to call from.
