INC-128880 · Issue 592817

Handling added for angle brackets in legacy Chart control

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.5

When using Investigative Case Management, some report charts were not rendering correctly. This has been resolved by updating appendFormattedString in AbstractJsonDataGenerator.java to escape angled brackets (< and >) before appending the input.

Resolved drill up doubling the filter box

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.5

When opening a report with a visual graph, clicking on one of the filtered options, leaving this box open (not submitting it) and then clicking on a bar in the visual graph of the report showed the contents of the graph, but then clicking on the report link to go back to the report overview caused a doubled filter box to be displayed. The report would then have to be reopened before being able to continue. The problem was that the value of .pyUI.pyConfigSecToShow was still set to "filter" after the drill down. When the drill back up happened, the report was trying to show the filter configuration section from before but the context was no longer available and it failed. This has been resolved by adding a call to pzCancelFilterLogicChanges in pzDrillUpReport to set the filters to the previous values and reset the value of pyConfigSecToShow.

Shortcut works for copying reports into private rulesets

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.5

Copying out of the box shortcuts to other categories in the Report Browser was failing with the error ".pyShortcutName: The rule name pyTimePerStage is a reserved name (starts with px, py, or pz) and is not created in a Pega- ruleset." This was caused by the system trying to create a new rule with a py prefix in a non pega- ruleset, which was a missed use case in the refactoring work of report actions to use the Record API. This has been corrected by moving the report ID generation logic from the activity pzValidateSaveAsInput to a new Rule-Utility-Function in the ReportingUtils library called pzGenerateUniqueRecordName so that it can also be used by pzCopyShortcutPostActivity7 when the shortcut's ID is prefixed with px, py, or pz.

The Report Resource Limit is applied on Job Scheduler

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.5

The Job Scheduler was ignoring the application-wide limit for maximum number of rows to retrieve that was set on the Report > Settings landing page. If the limit was set on the Data Access tab of the report, it was honored. If it was set on the Application settings rule Pega-RulesEngine.pyMaxRecords it was not honored. This behavior was due to pzUpdateSystemSettings being called by pxRetrieveReportData. In pzUpdateSystemSettings, .pyContent.pyMaxRecords was updated to match the value in px.Requestor.pyReportSettings.pyMaxRecords. In some cases, that was not available and the max amount of records was not limited in that case. This has been resolved by updating pzUpdateSystemSettings to pull pyMaxRecords using @getRuleSystemSetting().

SR-D80589 · Issue 544840

Check added before clearing Report definition custom filter section page

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.3

When using a Custom Section in the Report Viewer, the Page referred to at the Prefix was getting reset while running the report. Investigation showed the page was being reinitialized in pzCreateCustomFilterPage step 2, and this has been resolved by adding a 'when' rule for clearing the custom filter page.

SR-D91038 · Issue 553163

Corrected report with combo chart in Case Manager portal

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.3

After adding the required columns a report in the report viewer and then adding a combo chart and dropping the summarized column on the y-axes and group by column on X-axis, clicking on "done editing" generated the error "pyUI.pyChart: You must have at least two Aggregate Columns in the chart series .pyUI.pyChart.pyDataAxis(1).pyChartOutputType: A Combo chart requires at least 1 Chart Type be a Column". Investigation showed that the second DataAxis page was getting deleted in the pzCleanChartDataAxis activity, causing the validation to fail. This has been resolved by adding a 'when' rule to "pzChartIsSingleY" that checks for "SingleYAxisClustered" chart and refers the same in pzCleanChartDataAxis to skip the data axis deletion.

SR-D53176 · Issue 541792

Error when adding function filter will persist

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.3

When an exception occurred while adding a filter in the report viewer, the error was shown but cleared due to an immediate refresh of the parent section. Analysis found that step2 of pzGetFiltersFromContent was failing, after which the error was shown, the section reload happened, and the error disappeared. To resolve the error being cleared prematurely, the pzOnLoadReloadReport control has been modified so that when there are messages on the top level page (pyReportContentPage), a parameter will be set on HarnessContextMgr to not to clear them during the next refresh call.

SR-D75097 · Issue 539515

Improved handling against formula injection attacks in Export to ExcelJJ

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.3

Every time a possibly vulnerable cell value was found during Export to Excel, the value on that cell was modified to prevent a formula injection attack. If the value was non numeric, it would still render an apostrophe, although it should be hidden. Previous work on this issue involved the addition of a DSS which allowed this security to be disabled if the Excel was going to be consumed by an external tool, but the security implementation used to protect against calculation injection has reworked the ExcelSecurity utility function to allow the ability to change the cell style of a cell that is potentially vulnerable to formula injection attacks. This change no longer changes the cell value but instead applies a new cell style that has quotePrefix enabled.

SR-D83060 · Issue 547918

Repaired History class report column sorting

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.3

Attempting to sort any of the columns in a report using the History class did not render the results and the error "Cannot render the section" appeared. Tracer showed a Fail status for some out-of-the-box activities with the message "java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException". Investigation showed the logic in pzMergeAutoGenForProp activity was failing because the pyIsFunction property was not set on the UIField pages for function columns. To resolve this, the logic for pzMergeAutoGenForProp has been modified to get pyIsFunction from the field name.
