Updated upgrade handling for migrating work objects

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.6

After upgrading from Pega 6.2 to 8.3, the work migrated work objects were missing SLAs due to missed entries in the assignment tables (PC_ASSIGN_WORKLIST/ PC_ASSIGN_WORKBASKET) . The SLA was firing, but the processing failed due to the fact the runtime could not resolve a 'AddHistoryPage' library function. In this case, multiple upgrades of the application dating back to Pega 4 resulted in the runtime context containing older ruleset versions in higher ruleset versions, hiding the underlying Pega 8 version of the rule. For releases prior to Pega 7.3, Rule-Application was stored in pr4_rule and will be migrated to pr4_rule_application during upgrades. However, since Context Upgrade is run before Optimize Newly Exposed Columns, the pyDependsOnName won't always be populated. To resolve this, the system will filter based on the value in the blob rather than the exposed column so there will be a value regardless of the upgrade-from version.

Configuration added for extending queue processor timeout

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.6

Alerts for queue processor (QP) items which took more than 15 minutes to run could result in the system marking the node as 'unhealthy'. In environments with Pega Health Check enabled, this would shut down the node gracefully. It was not possible to change this default as it was hardcoded. In order to support systems that may have custom processes that run beyond 15 minutes, a a new setting has been exposed that allows configuration of the interval after which a node with long-running queue processor is marked as unhealthy and is restarted. By default this remains 900000 milliseconds / 900 seconds / 15 minutes, but it may be adjusted up to 24 hours to avoid premature node shutdown. The stale thread detection mechanism will take that setting into account and use the provided value or default to 15 minutes if the value was not provided. In addition, the threshold's units in the UI have been changed from ms to seconds.

Added tenantID checking for multi-tenant import of access groups

Resolved in Pega Version 7.1.7

When attempting to overwrite an existing access group by importing the Client Access groups in the tenant layer, an error was generated and the access groups were not overwritten. This occurred when the SQLs were not Tenant-qualifying for operator records but were being imported into a tenant; as a result, operator record updates were marked as inserts. To correct this, the behavior has been updated to query for current tenantId and always tenant-qualify the query if it's an overridable instance and not in a shared context.

System scanner performance enhanced

Resolved in Pega Version 7.1.7

When working with a large number of hotfixes, the system scanner can become very slow. Performance enhancements have been incorporated to increase speed by changing how ID and key comparisons are performed.

SR-116510 · Issue 171699

Handling corrected for testing rulesets with multiple versions

Resolved in Pega Version 7.1.7

If two rulesets with multiple versions were moved to a test environment, when the product rule was created only one of the version's instances was in the .jar file. This issue was caused by incomplete clearing of the ruleset spec after collecting the rules, and has been corrected.

SR-116941 · Issue 168143

Improved performance for sending queued messages

Resolved in Pega Version 7.1.7

LogToSpecifiedAppender was experiencing poor performance in some situations caused by duplicating locking attempts while processing an appender to send queued messages. To improve this, code changes have been made to smooth locking and avoid searching appenders when dynamic appenders are configured.

SR-117131 · Issue 167711

Corrected Rule cleanup utility

Resolved in Pega Version 7.1.7

The Rule Cleanup utility deletes instances from pr4_rule_ruleset that contain old ruleset versions. Some Rule-RuleSet-Name instances have rulesets and were deleted incorrectly. To correct this, the utility has been modified with an additional 'where' clause to restrict deleting Rule-RuleSet-Name instances.

SR-117847 · Issue 172996

Handling enhanced for custom system names

Resolved in Pega Version 7.1.7

If the system.name property in setupDatabase.properties was updated to reflect a custom System Name during ruleset migration, the value was not being used by the software update process and the resulting error caused a batch failure. There was a workaround of explicitly setting the system name in the field env name="Identification/SystemName" value=, but this has been updated to fetch the name from the db. In addition, the query that fetches the system name has been modified with a check to make sure that there is at least one requestor for the name it fetches.
