Chatbot text starts scroll at top of answer

Resolved in Pega Version 8.2.8

In order to present an improved interface for customers interfacing with chatbots, the code has been updated so that the recipient's chat scroll will remain at the top of an answer that would scroll off the screen.

Retry logic added for downloading upgraded rules

Resolved in Pega Version 8.2.8

A Rules upgrade failed while downloading applications from the maintenance server due to an SFTP server connection failure. This has been resolved by adding logic to retry if the first connection attempt fails.

Resolved buffer overflow for Migration loadDatabase

Resolved in Pega Version 8.2.8

A Rules upgrade failed in the Migration step at loadDatabase stage, involving the move of all the table records from old schema to new schema. This was traced to the inability of Migration to load blob of sizes more than 100 MB, and has been resolved by updating Migration to use byte[] to read the blob content with the help of metadata that contains blob length.

TableRenameUtil hashing improved

Resolved in Pega Version 8.2.8

During index name generation, the algorithm that was responsible for index name uniqueness was sometimes insufficient and cerated a loop condition. This has been resolved by using a stronger hash algorithm and refactoring the code that could result in a loop.

SameSite cookie setting added for Mashup support in Google Chrome v80+

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.3

The Google Chrome browser version 80 and above now treats SameSite with a blank value as "Lax" by default, causing mashup scenarios to break. In order to compensate for this change, support has been added for setting SameSite=None in Cookie Settings; this value automatically includes the “secure” cookie flag, which enforces HTTPS for the Pega server and mashup. For mashups to work, SameSite should be set as None. Create a Dynamic system setting in the Pega-Engine RuleSet with the name “security/csrf/samesitecookieattributevalue” and the value "None" and restart the server. (The SameSite value "None" works only in secure HTTPS connections.)Note: The SameSite cookie may be set to None/Lax/Strict, based on the requirement. For cookie requirements other than mashup, it should be set as either Strict or Lax, depending upon your application.

Mentioned user in Pulse correctly converted to hyperlink

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.3

In the Interaction portal, mentioning a user in Pulse using @ was not converting the name to the user name with hyperlink for Email Interactions. @ mentions were working as as expected in Phone Interactions. This problem was introduced as part of using OWASP to sanitize HTML user input in Rich Text support, and was due to OWASP converting @ to an HTML entity. To resolve this, the @ will be excepted from HTML conversion.

Optional feature to improve pxETReport performance

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.3

Poor performance was seen when using pxETReport. This was caused by the system loading the recent cases widget by looking up all the ET cases within last 30 days, opening each ET case to check if it is from the same pyFrom email address, and then if yes, opening its related service case. On a complex system, this was potentially a slow process. To improve performance, the "Related cases" feature can now be disabled through an overridable 'when' rule.

SR-D63638 · Issue 544015

Performance improvements for opening cases with embedded images

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.3

Opening cases containing email interactions was taking an excessive amount of time. This was traced to the use of embedded images, icons, etc, in the message body and signature, and was caused by the pyGetAttachmentsbyCID activity running multiple times due to discussion threads that were duplicated over and over. In some cases, more than 360 calls to the database were seen. This has been resolved by shifting some case opening processes to executing when the listener thread gets the mail, and storing the results in a .pynote property, and a URL will be used to get images instead of embedding them directly to the HTML. If preferred, this can be reverted to the previous behavior by changing the when rule (pyUseCachedHtmlForDisplay) to false.

SR-D81707 · Issue 544671

Webchat bot interaction box cleared on submit

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.3

After upgrade, when using Google Chrome responses to webchat bot questions were not getting cleared from the chat input window after the enter/send button was clicked. This has been resolved by changing the order of refresh section and set value and disabling submit on refresh when refreshing pzSubmitArea.

SR-D86837 · Issue 547992

Webchat interaction timeout updated

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.3

Interaction timeout was not working as expected in Webchat channels. This was traced to the system looking for total interaction timeout instead of user inactive timeout, along with the Web chat interaction case clipboard page being stale. To resolve this, timestamp propagation has been updated for pxProcess in Work-Channel-Interaction.pxAcquireInteraction.
