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.

StackOverFlow logging improved

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.4

Enhanced diagnostic logging information has been added to help find issues when StackOverFlow errors occur.

Web Tier busy threads released on timeout

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.4

Tomcat Web Tier Busy Threads were not being correctly released, causing stability and performance problems that included health check pings not receiving a thread to service the request so the node was marked as bad, users were quiesced, and the node replaced. Investigation showed the 'put' on the blocking queue did not time out when the queue was full and waited indefinitely, keeping the thread blocked. To resolve this, the system will use 'offer' on the blocking queue instead of 'put' to force thread release on timeout. In addition, debug logs have been added to understand when the offer (or Put) does not succeed and the state of the queue that is causing this issue; the debug logs for class com.pega.pegarules.session.internal.serverpush.RoboticAutomationImpl should be enabled only if the thread busy issue is observed and for limited time window while actively debugging.

Apache commons-codec has been updated to version 1.15 , and Apache commons-io has been updated to version 2.7.

Resolved Push Node Daily Information exception

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.4

The "Push Nodes Info Daily" agent was generating an exception on each of the nodes. This has been resolved by enhancing the PegaAESRemote code to handle the exception and get the node info locally, then push it to the console when it is not able to get it via the cluster management API.

Certificate match will use Subject Distinguished Name

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.4

Signature verification was failing due to the system not finding the matching root certificate for the chain. The root certificate was in the trust store, but the system found a different certificate first and that other certificate (an intermediate certificate) was not considered a valid certificate for validating the whole certificate chain. This was traced to filtering on the Issuer Distinguished Name (DN) instead of the Subject DN and was due to intermediate certificates potentially having the same Issuer as a root certificate (e.g. if that root certificate was used to create the intermediate certificate). To resolve this, an update has been made to check the Subject DN instead of Issuer DN.

Instance count logic updated

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.4

A performance issue was seen during upgrade that resembled an upgrade hang. This was caused by a combination of incorrect logic in DDLGenerator.getInstanceCountForClass() around counting instances of 'core' classes and all of the site history-data- tables being mapped to the same table that had 1.4+ billion rows. This behavior has been addressed with more correct query logic while performing instance counts. In addition, instance count will be supressed during command line invocations (prpcUtils, platform upgrade).

Workaround added for Oracle 4000 character column value max

Resolved in Pega Version 7.3.1

Due to an Oracle limitation, RD on a clob column fails if the column value is of length greater than 4000. To work around this, support has been added to retrieve data from a clob column of length greater than 4000 characters using report definition based on DASS setting "reporting/retrieveFullClobContent" defined on "Pega-RULES".

TimeStamp column includes milliseconds in extract

Resolved in Pega Version 7.3.1

Extraction to database output format was not showing the millisecond part of the datetime column. This was a missed use case for BIX when the support of Datetime property mapping to timestamp column was introduced in Oracle, and has been fixed.
