SR-D90687 · Issue 560431

IOException handling improved to resolve broken pipe errors

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.2

Frequent "connection reset by peers" exceptions were being generated and broken-pipe exceptions were seen in the logs. Investigation traced the issue to unhanded IOExceptions on the server side that were a result of the client application not always closing the TCP connection gracefully. To resolve this, error handling for IOExceptions has been improved.

Directory traversal blocked in zip import

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.2

One of the files contained in a zip archive was not deleted from the system after zip import. This was due to the file being created by a third-party archive that included of a directory traversal character that caused it to be inflated outside of the temp directory. To resolve this, a check has been added to that a file with directory traversal characters in its name will not be inflated.

JDBC URL handling added for Oracle over TCPS

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.2

While attempting to upgrade an environment over TCPS, the generateDDL.sh script was failing. The same environment ran without issue on Tomcat with the same URL. Investigation showed the JDBC url was not correctly generated while running the upgrade: in a standard scenario, there will be no spaces in the JDBC URL specified. However, because Oracle can send spaces as part of JDBC URL and cause this issue, an update has been made which will quote the JDBC URL argument for the ant target in setupDDL.xml.

SR-D84364 · Issue 551403

Check for circular references added to SearchInventoryImpl to prevent recursive call

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.2

An out of memory error was traced to SearchInventoryImpl infinitely recursing over a clipboard property, where the child property referenced a parent property and resulted in an endless loop. This has been resolved with the addition of a depth check to ensure that the search does not recurse infinitely.

ProductInfoReader updated to fetch only most recent version information

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.2

After upgrade, running Hfix scanner on Pega Marketing 8.2 displayed missed critical Hfixes for Pega Marketing 8.1. This has been resolved by modifying ProductInfoReader.runQuery to fetch only latest version of DAPF instances during a scan.

SR-D98404 · Issue 558207

Handling added for hotfix Rule-Application instances

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.2

A null pointer error during DL file expansion performed as part of the second phase of a hotfix installation caused the hotfix install to fail. The null-pointer exception was thrown because the code, primarily used for export, performed a database lookup of a Rule-Application and assumed the response would be non-null without checking the result. During export the Rule-Application would normally exist because the system would have interacted with it already during the export by identifying it and writing it to the archive. During phased hotfix installation, rules are staged to the database in a different table during the first phase and reconstituted during the second phase. The scenario for this error was a missed corner case specific to the unusual combination of including Rule-Application instances in a platform hotfix. To resolve this and prevent further issues, handling has been added for this use case.

SR-128961 · Issue 208349

Added check for naming conflicts when upgrading Oracle

Resolved in Pega Version 7.2

When attempting to upgrade a single schema on Oracle database, running the generateddl script failed with a NullPointerException. This was caused by database tables which had a column name called 'SYS_ID' as part of the primary key. Since Oracle uses system-generated names beginning with "SYS_" for implicitly generated schema objects and subobjects, Oracle discourages the use of this prefix in the names explicitly provided to the schema objects and subobjects in order to avoid possible conflicts in name resolution. To resolve this, a tester has been added to the system to check for this naming use and issue a warning.

SR-A2239 · Issue 205811

Documentation added on adding Tomcat-on-Oracle Rules resource

Resolved in Pega Version 7.2

The Tomcat-on-Oracle installation guides for Pega ML7 and ML8 did not contain instructions for adding a for jdbc/AdminPegaRULES. As such if the installer prepared a two-user (Base + Admin) setup in the database and allocated the Base user to jdbc/PegaRULES, the Pega platform was unable to run DDL to create new tables for new work types and new data types, as the installer has not configured the additional datasource to use the Admin user. The documentation has been updated to add the necessary step between Steps 1 and 2 of the "Create a JDBC Datasource" chapter (page 41 from the ML7 installation guide).

SR-A9147 · Issue 220746

Documentation updated for command-line BIX extractions

Resolved in Pega Version 7.2

The documentation for "Using a stand-alone command-line BIX extract process" has been updated to refer to the BIX 7.1 User's Guide regarding configuring the necessary database connection properties set (prbootstrap, prconfig, etc.).

SR-A5258 · Issue 213386

Documentation updated to reflect change to read-only getProperty pages

Resolved in Pega Version 7.2

In recent versions of the system, getProperty() was modified to support the creation of a property on a read-only page. However, even though the property has been created, it is not possible to set its value. This was not clearly indicated in the documentation, and read-only exceptions were being generated when putString() or setValue() attempted to give a value for the property on a read-only page. The documentation has been updated to clarify this use case.
