INC-130299 · Issue 583924

Updated SSO operator authentication handling after passivation

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.9

With SSO enabled and the pyAccessGroupsAdditional value list populated with the Mapping tab, attempting to access an expired session with an old cookie resulted in a stale thread exception while mapping value list attributes. This was due to using an AuthServicePage which was created by another session thread that had become stale for current session, and has been resolved by updating the code to call the authenticateoperator method on the authservicepage copy.

INC-135874 · Issue 58341

Added handling for password containing a colon on Pega Client for Windows

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.9

If a password included a colon (:), it was possible to log in on the desktop but not Pega Client for Windows. This was due to authentication files specific to the Windows mobility client, and handling has been added to resolve the issue.

INC-137709 · Issue 584291

New security role added to restrict access to development-specific classes

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.9

A new security role and related RAROs have been implemented to allow better security for end users on non-BAC systems. This restricts access to Rules and execution of activities on classes that are development-specific.

INC-137978 · Issue 586184

CDK key loading modified for better database compatibility

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.9

Users were unable to log on to the system and received the error "There has been an issue; please consult your system administrator." Investigation showed the log errors stating "(dataencryption.DataKeyProvider) ERROR localhost - Could not get CDK from systemKeyManagementCache - System CDK is null". This was an issue specific to the MS SQL Server database when there were 6 or more CDKs in the database: CDK keys are loaded from database into Cache using an SQL statement which had the ORDER clause. By default, the ORDER clause treats NULL values differently on different databases, and this caused MS SQL databases to not load a necessary CDK key. To resolve this, the SQL query has been modified so the result will be the same for all supported daatbases (Oracle, Postgres & MS SQL Server).

INC-138490 · Issue 591016

Handling added for samesite cookies with httpOnly

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.9

After enabling samesite cookies on Google Chrome to support Mashup login, intermittent issues were seen with a non-mashup login where entering the OperatorID and password only resulted in a refresh of the login screen. This was traced to a scenario where an httponly cookie attribute was present along with samesite cookie attributes, and has been resolved by adding handling for a condition where samesite is set and httpOnly is enabled.

SR-D95148 · Issue 557485

Port validation updated for redirect URI

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.9

When an offline app for windows client was generated, trying to login via SSO resulted in the error "invalid redirect_uri". This was traced to the system validating the whole loopback redirection URL, e.g. "http://127.0.0.1:1234/redirection", including the port number. To enhance flexibility, an update has been made so that the port number will not be validated, allowing the client to establish it based on availability at the moment of the request to the authorization service. NOTE: As a best practice, a loopback URL should not be configured as a redirect URI. If a loopback URL is configured, then at run time the port number will not be validated, and the client application can use any available port on the system including ports that may not be intended for use.

SR-113624 · Issue 167070

Enabling out-of-the-box Security Policies now redirects immediately

Resolved in Pega Version 7.1.7

When enabling out-of-the-box Security Policies, it was not immediately redirecting to the change password screen but instead requiring the timeout interval to expire before redirect happened. This has been corrected.

SR-118880 · Issue 172588

Change Password redirect loop fixed

Resolved in Pega Version 7.1.7

When URLEncryption is enabled along with Security Policies, redirection to the Change Password screen caused the browser to loop into an endless redirect (HTTP 302 loop). This was caused by Incorrect (un-obfuscated) data being used internally when obfuscation was enabled, and has been fixed.

SR-131072 · Issue 203709

Requestor token creation added for PRExternal authentication

Resolved in Pega Version 7.1.9

When using a PRExternal authentication scheme, the csrfsession requestor token was not created. This caused a heavy volume of INFO logging messages in production due to the null token. This authentication path has now been added and the token will be correctly created for use.

SR-131691 · Issue 202207

Improved performance for incorrect password handling

Resolved in Pega Version 7.1.9

When the operator entered the wrong password in the login screen, numerous "Stream Overwritten" alerts appeared the Alert log. There was no workflow problem involved, but the logging indicated that there was an additional unnecessary call being made to Stream Web-Login, and that unneeded call has been removed to improve system performance and remove the error being logged.
