Certificate updates handled across nodes

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.3

An SSL handshake exception was occurring when running a Connect-REST call automatically from the flow as a background process on a background processing node. The same Connect-REST worked fine when run manually. The exception detailed the issue as "SSLHandshakeException: None of the TrustManagers allowed for trust of the SSL certificate(s) provided by the remote server to which this client attempted a connection." This was traced to a pulse change scenario where the reloading of the certificates was not happening on all the nodes after adding a new certificate or deleting a certificate. This has ben resolved by adding the DATA-ADMIN-SECURITY-CERTIFICATE class into the class.

Cache key handling updated for OAuth2 Connect-REST

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.3

After upgrade, a Connect-REST using OAuth2 credentials was failing with HTTP response code 403 when the Connect-REST was invoked by the agent, but the Connect-REST was successfully invoked from web node with the same Auth profile. OAuth2 tokens are stored in the cache and database. In this specific environment the key formation was happening differently on the utility node for batch processes, causing different keys to be formed for the same token. This has been resolved by adding a provider filter and updating the cache key.

Decryption updated for External assignment routed with DWA

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.3

When an external assignment was routed to a user using DWA, the user was able to access the assignment but received the error "There has been an issue; please consult your system administrator" when submitting. Investigation showed this was caused by the system attempting to decrypt the External assignment with the requestor level key, causing the decryption to fail with a NumberFormatException. To resolve this, the system will check if the obfuscated string starts with Global encryption key prefix and then decrypt with the global encryption key by trimming out the prefix.

Re-enabled users are able to log in

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.3

When disabled operators were re-enabled through operator management, the forced password change on next login was manually unchecked but the operators were unable to login because the change password screen was displayed without any password entry fields. This was a missed use case for handling the change password flag on a requestor , and has been resolved by having the system skip setting the change password on next login flag for disabled users.

Null check added for step page

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.3

After creating and adding new Access Roles and application 'Access When' to the privileges instead of Production level, during run time the error "runtime.IndeterminateConditionalException: Trying to evaluate Rule-Access-When conditions L:IsProdAccess when there is no page to evaluate them against" appeared for the specific privileges. This was traced to a missed use case where the system falls back to the step page if the page for evaluating the 'when' condition is null, which did not account for scenarios where the step page can be null. To resolve this, a null check has been added which will fetch the primary page if the step page for the access 'when' condition is null.

SAML SSO redirects to correct URL when application and authentication aliases match

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.3

Whenever there was a match in the authentication service alias and the application alias, the application alias was replaced with empty after logoff instead of making the authentication service alias empty. For example, given an authentication service with the alias XYZ ("login with XYZ" alias option) and an application name XYZMyOps, the application alias was being changed from XYZMyOps to appMyOps after logoff. As a result, a blue screen error resulted when clicking on button "login with XYZ" again because it redirected to appMyOps, which didn't exist. This has been resolved by removing authservicealias and modifying AuthServiceAliasHelper.adjustPathIfAuthServiceAliasPresent() to change the method for calculating the pathinfo to string tokenizing

Added mail/telephone link to allowed CSP child frame

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.3

After upgrade from v8.3 to v8.5, clicking on the mail / telephone link in the out of the box case participants gadget generated the Content Security Policy error "This content is blocked. Contact the site owner to fix the issue." Examination of the browser dev-tools console indicated the object refused to frame because it violated the Content Security Policy directive: "frame-src *". This behavior was specific to the Google Chrome browser, and has been resolved by adding code so the mailto: and tel: will be added to the frame-src when Data is selected under Child Frame-Source option. Unchecking the Data checkbox for Child Frame-Source on the policy landing page will remove these from allowed actions under CSP.

Improved disconnected requestor cleanup for FieldService

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.3

A large number of requestors from FieldService with the status as 'Disconnected' were accumulating and causing performance issues. This was traced to the requestors not getting passivated due to users not logging out and new requestors being created for the same users next time, and was caused by the value of the DSS Initialization/PersistRequestor being set as "OnTimeout". When the DSS prconfig/timeout/browser/default is not configured, the default browser requestor timeout is 60 minutes. In this scenario, requestors were not passivating as the requestor passivation timeout was set to the refresh token lifetime for mobile users, which was very large and overwrote the DSS value. This has been resolved by removing the code which set the passivation timeout to the OAuth2 refresh token lifetime.

Deprecated authentication methods removed

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.3

After upgrade, attempting to trigger the Pega hosted API externally through Post Man resulted in the exception "The method getAuthenticationService() is undefined for the type OAuth2AccessTokenValidation". This was traced to the use of references to the methods getAuthenticationService() and getAuthenticationServiceType(), which are not in use from v8.5 onwards in pzOAuth2AuthenticationActivity and have now been removed. For OAuth2 authentication, the service package should use authentication type as OAuth2; the system will then take care of validating the token and establishing the operator context.

Enhancement added for tenant-level authentication

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.4

In a multi-tenant PDC with a few tenants that utilize their own custom SSO, a pre-authentication activity inside a tenant that should block community access was also affecting tenants that did not have that pre-auth activity set. This was a missed use case and has been resolved by adding a tenantId hash in SchemePRAuth.makeUniqueSchemeName() to create the authServiceName.
