SR-D28965 · Issue 501857

Repository document deletion modified for better cleanup

Resolved in Pega Version 8.2.4

When using documents functionality, creating and uploading a document properly stored it, but deleting the document did not remove the associated files from storage. Whenever a document is created that has a file, instances Of Link-Attachment and Data-WorkAttach-File are also created. Previously, when the document was deleted, the associated instances and actual file were not deleted from the repositories but rather marked as Resolved-Withdrawn and hidden at the UI level. The system has now been updated so that when a document is deleted, the document attachment will also be deleted from all places like list, Tile, and document View, and reference instances like Link-Attachment and Data-WorkAttach-File instance will also be removed along with the actual file from the repository.

Installer files updated with class loader conflict resolution assistance

Resolved in Pega Version 8.2.4

When sending emails with attachments, errors were observed relating to a loader constraint violation indicating that when resolving interface method, the class loader of the current class and the class loader for the method's defining class had different Class objects for the type used in the signature. The resolution for this requires user configuration of the app server, and the following files for the install guide have been updated with the appropriate information:Deployment-guides-dita/install.ditamap Deployment-guides-dita/Content/Topics/app-server-config/creating-jdbc-driver-module-jboss-tsk.dita Deployment-guides-dita/Content/Topics/app-server-config/delegating-javax-activation-to-JRE-loader-tsk.dita

Added timeout handling for non-PRAuth servlets

Resolved in Pega Version 8.2.4

After logging in via external authentication service (SAML Single Sign On) and setting up a timeout in the access group RuleForm, when the user performed any action and the server identified the request to be timed-out, it was expected that a SAML request would be sent from the browser to the external Authentication Server (referred as IDP) and the flow would proceed from there. This worked as expected for a non-AJAX request. To resolve this, handling has been added for timeout when using non-PRAuth authentication services.

SAML data pages restored after passivation

Resolved in Pega Version 8.2.4

If login used SAML SSO, resuming the session after passivation resulted in missing or empty data pages when using an SAP integration with Pega Cloud. This was traced to a security change that modified the D_SAMLAssertionDataPage and D_SamlSsoLoginInfo data pages as readonly, causing them to not be passivated under these conditions. To resolve this, the data pages have been made editable so they will be restored as expected. This change also resolves any difficulty with SAML logoff activities in conjunction with SAP and Pega Cloud.

prproductmigration build.gradle updated for new mime4j asset name

Resolved in Pega Version 8.2.4

While running the getMigrationLog for ProductMigration script provided in the Pega 8.2.2 media files, errors appeared referencing "NoClassDefFoundErrors when running getLogs". This was caused by the referenced class not being found on the classpath: the version of the included jar did not include the class needed due to Praxiom's default version being updated to use a new version of mime4j that required an asset name change. To resolve this, the mime4j asset name in prproductmigration build.gradle has been updated to pick up the correct version of the dependency for Praxiom.

Colon in folder or file name will be replaced with underscore during unzip

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.1

After creating a product file (zip), attempting to import the same file into an updated system resulted in an exception. Investigation showed that in this case the zip file was a Product rule form which had applications packaged with a colon(:) in the name of the application, a format that was allowed in 6.x versions. Because Windows machines restrict creating creating any folder or file with : in its name, the zip file could not be inflated as part of the import process. To resolve this, the system has been updated so that a colon(:) will be replaced by underscore(_) during inflate operations.

Stream Registration deprecated and replaced

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.1

Previously, Stream Registration, which was added as an extra layer of protection during the display of stream rules, automatically registered any streams being used in the context and checked this registry during reloadSection/reloadHarness calls to prevent Broken Access Control attacks. However, only an alert was thrown and no further action was being taken on it. With platform added support for URL Tampering, Stream Registration is no longer required and has been deprecated. The URL Tampering function has the capabilities to register for auto/non-auto rules and configure whether to display warning or reject the request for all the activities, and not just the stream rules. Note that URL Tampering will do registration/validation only when security/rejectTamperedRequests is explicitly set to true.

Logout Redirect updated to handle special characters in IDP parameters

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.1

When using "HTTP Redirect" in Authentication Service, the Logout Redirect service was failing due to the query parameter name containing "_" (underscore). This was traced to IDP sending parameters to assertion consumer service or logout request endpoint with names which contained any special characters, as the system was trying to put those key values on the parameter page for additional processing. To resolve this, the system has been updated to suppress exceptions when the parameters from IDP includes special characters.

Kerberos authentication parameters propagated for deployment

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.1

Attempting to perform a deployment using Kerberos authentication to an Oracle database failed with an authentication error. This was traced to the java system properties (for example, -Dname=value) required by the Oracle JDBC driver for Kerberos authentication intermittently not being set when connections were being made to the database. When they were not being set, the connection would fail due to authentication. This has been resolved by ensuring the java system properties (-D's) that were provided to the 'custom.jvm.properties' property in the collection of deployment related *.properties files are being propagated to every part of the deployment scripts.
