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.

INC-153138 · Issue 625567

Database primary keys generated as NONCLUSTERED for imports

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.5

When a primary key was defined for a table and the table was exported and then imported, the primary key was generated as CLUSTERED. This resulted in an MS SQL Cluster Index violation because all Pega-shipped tables generated during installs/upgrades have a PK constraint index with NONCLUSTERED index type as it allows for a longer key. This was a missed use case, and has been resolved by updating the system such that when importing with MS SQL database, the primary key index is made NONCLUSTERED all the time so it will be consistent with the base platform.

INC-154042 · Issue 621259

Pega Catalog custom upload control modified

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.5

Attempting to upload a catalog.zip file caused the system to hang and thread dumps were seen in the logs. Investigation traced the issue to the custom control used to upload the catalog, which was posting the entire content in form data rather than sending a multi-part request. The control contained both legacy code which used form.submit() and encoding along with new code that used SafeURL and sent an async request. With this, encoding could not be set to multi-part in case of an AJAX request. To resolve this, the catalog upload control has been modified to use the appropriate legacy code that performs form.submit() and sets the encoding properly.

INC-157196 · Issue 629296

Deprecated service package features now require authentication

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.5

Authentication has been added to deprecated features of the standard service package to improve security. If issues are encountered during product migration, please use the Deployment Manager.

INC-158519 · Issue 625078

Filter considers all instances pages during deployment

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.5

During package deployment, attempting to use Filter to skip some of the instances only displayed the result of the current active page instead of all pages. This was an unintended consequence of previous work, and has been resolved by adding the logic to strip quotes in the value and adding the "Pagination activity manages filtering" checkbox by default.
