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.

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.

Added handling for Authorization Server login loop

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.1

When the Authorization server returned an error, it was redirecting back with error, error_description, and parameters. The system then tried to start the login process again, the same error parameters were returned again, and it continued to loop this way. To resolve this issue, handling has been added for this error scenario from the Authorization Server.

View Full History will not include private edits

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.1

After upgrade, clicking 'View Full History' and then 'History of All Versions', showed the history of discarded private edits of other users. This was an inadvertent side effect of work done to improve the support for rollback and migration, and has been resolved by updating the system to not save the history when in a personal ruleset (checkouts/private edits). The help documentation has also been updated to note there is no history available for checkouts/private edits.

SR-D78274 · Issue 544094

Handling added for dual privileges with MSSQL

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.1

After setting up dual privileges, the Admin user was able to create a table but the base user received an "insufficient privileges" error. Investigation showed this was an issue when using MSSQL: the generated grant statements used the server login name as the user in the grant statement, instead of the database user. For all other databases, the username passed into the connection is the correct user to use for grants. Only MSSQL has a distinction between this connection user name (the login) and the database user, and since the login did not exist in the user table, the grant failed. To resolve this, when MSSQL is used, the system will fetch the underlying database user when determining the user for grant statement generation.
