RemovePrivateBlockedAndWithdrawnRAQs updated to avoid exception

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.2

If the method removePrivateBlockedAndWithdrawnRAQs() (present on the class) had both the "ignore personal rulesets containing checked out files" and "ignore "Blocked or Withdrawn agent" conditions set, raqsItr.remove(); ran twice and resulted in a java.lang.IllegalStateException. This could lead to undesired outcomes such as agents not showing up properly. To correct this, the code has been refactored to avoid running raqsItr.remove(); more than the necessary number of times.

Processed in last hour generated correctly

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.2

After upgrade, the 'Processed in last hour' for pyFTSIncrementalIndexer (or any other queue processor) did not show the totals processed. This was traced to an error in a declare expression rule, and has been corrected.

Queue processor handling updated

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.2

After upgrade, the queue processors were not processing all the items in the queue, however the value under the 'number of items processed in the last hour' in the Admin studio showed the value was equal to the total number of items in the queue. This was traced to the an incorrect offset kept by the queue processor in the data table (Data-QueueProcessor-Run-Partition). Because the incoming messages from Kafka have a lower offset than the one kept by the queue processor, messages were treated as duplicates and not processed. This has been resolved by adding a partitions-validation mechanism on QP startup. To assist in proper handling, any messages identified as potentially already processed will be moved to the broken messages queue.

SR-D85839 · Issue 550939

Support added for custom Kafka connection properties

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.2

An enhancement has been added to allow specifying custom Kafka connection properties in the Data-Admin-Kafka data instance to allow connections to external Kafka through the common client configs, ssl configs, and sasl configs.

Declaratives disabled during startup

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.2

Declaratives firing before the engine is fully up can lead to null pointer errors. In order to avoid this condition, declaratives will be disabled during startup so that unnecessary operations can be avoided and system can be started faster.

INC-119678 · Issue 564202

Improved timing for node tracing termination

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.2

The tracer stopped tracing after tracing a certain number of events. This was due to communication timing issues for tracer events from one node to another node in a multi-node cluster environment, caused by the Tracer Client using the pzMaxEvent property which limited the maximum number of events fetched at a time to 200. Any leftover Events should have been fetched in the next request, but when the consuming node's service ended after the 200 events, the system removed the service requester entry from the distributed Map and disabled remote node tracing as part of cleanup of the service execution. To resolve this, an update has been made so the node tracing will not be terminated until the service execution ends and there are no more events to process.

Class Loader cache values wrapped with WeakReference for improved cleanup

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.2

Out Of Memory exceptions due to Metaspace were observed on Web tier instances running with a max Metaspace size of 2GB. Investigation showed that in PRClassLoaderDB, mLoaderCache values were wrapped with a SoftReference. To resolve this, the Class Loader cache values will be wrapped with a WeakReference, allowing the cache to free memory when it is no longer needed. JVM options has also been added to switch types of References being used if there is a preference.

Resolved Agile Workbench video recording timeout

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.2

Using the Record Video option thru Agile Workbench to create an Agile Studio item was either taking an excessively long time to finish or was hanging. Research showed that this scenario could arise when the input parameter value crossed more than 50 characters and triggered the interaction threshold for an alert, and has been resolved by updating the system so that query parameters with size more than 50 are not encoded and added to alert logs.

INC-126662 · Issue 561315

Thread context updated to supply steppage

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.2

After upgrade, Server Startup was failing with the error "PEGA Rules Server not available". Investigation traced this to missing steppage information while invoking Rule-Utility-Function (from declare trigger when rule) during startup, which was caused by the thread calling the declare trigger, which was different from the thread running WhenRule, not being properly initialized during startup. To resolve this, the thread context has been changed to gThread, which contains the necessary steppage information.

INC-126857 · Issue 564596

Added handling for download of attachment with special characters

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.2

If the name of an uploaded attachment contained a non-ascii character, the upload was successful but the downloaded file had the wrong name without any suffix. This was an issue on WAS or JBoss servers where filenames contained non-ascii characters, and the filename parameter in the content disposition header also contained these characters. To resolve this, the filename parameter in the content disposition header will be encoded as well along with the filename* parameter to handle non-ascii characters in the filename.
