INC-155276 · Issue 622816

Null check added for step page

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.6

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.

Improved disconnected requestor cleanup for FieldService

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.6

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.

Browser fingerprint validation issue resolved

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.3

After upgrade, Pega logoff was happening automatically within five minutes while using Microsoft Internet Explorer. This was traced to the COSMOS-based portal in Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 generating different hashes for different parts of the screen, causing a "Browser fingerprint validation failed" error because of the pzBFP token mismatch. To resolve this, an update has been made to exclude the graphic components for calculation of browserfingerprint.

SR-D96395 · Issue 555117

CDK key loading modified for better database compatibility

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.3

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).

SR-D79181 · Issue 551123

OKTA receives parameters on logout

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.3

When using an OIDC logout endpoint with a parameter set as a data page value, the data page retrieved the ID Token from the database, but when logout was clicked the datapage name was being displayed in the browser instead of the IDToken. To resolve this, code has been added to support sending ID token parameters for logoff endpoint for OKTA logoff using OpeniD connect.

SR-D64566 · Issue 547513

Option added for redirect to SAML IDP on logout

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.3

An enhancement has been added which provides a check box to choose to redirect to SAML IDP on logout from Pega.

SR-D75498 · Issue 545068

Resolved null-pointer exception for Token based Authenticated Rest

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.3

When logging in with auth0 OIDC auth service and then trying to use connect-Rest with an authentication profile using an auth0 provider, a null pointer error was generated indicating connect-Rest could not find the Access token. Even thought the Authentication service (OIDC) and authentication profile (authorization grant) both had the same scopes (“openid profile email”), OIDC flow and authentication profile save the Access Token with different scopes. Specifically, OIDC saves the token with an extra trailing space. Handling has been added to correct this.

SR-D92837 · Issue 551004

SameSite cookie setting updated for pre-authentication

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.3

In work done in previous versions to modify the SameSite cookie handling to support Mashups in Google Chrome v80+, SameSite was set to None only in case of an authenticated Pega-RULES cookie and not for a Pre-authenticated cookie. That caused the Samesite value to not be set when using a pre-authenticated cookie, and the blank value was treated as 'Lax', causing a login challenge. To resolve this, Samesite will be set to 'None' when using pre-authenticated cookie, which will match the way it is being set in authenticated cookie.

SR-D90452 · Issue 551808

SSOPreAuthenticationActivity runs until success

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.3

When a user visited a public-facing application via a Single Sign-On (SSO) URL that redirected to SAML IDP for authentication, the first time the URL was hit the system correctly executed pySSOPreAuthenticationActivity as part of pre-authentication to determine if authentication is possible/allowed. If the pySSOPreAuthenticationActivity set the pyAuthenticationPolicyResult to 'false', authentication was not allowed: the user was not redirected to the IDP and an error message was shown. However, if the same URL is hit again after that rejection without any changes, the user was redirected to the IDP for authentication because the preauthentication activity was not run again. This has been resolved by updating the system to continue to call the pre-authentication activity for the SSO URL until a success status is returned by the activity.

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.
