Email Discussion Thread retains Formatting

Resolved in Pega Version 8.2.4

CSS styles were not being retained in the discussion thread when replying to InboundCorrespondence cases. This was traced to a missing value in Param.latestReply activity pzCreateExternalPostFromMail, and has been resolved by setting an initial plain text value to the param.latestReply before it is set with the HTML value. This prevents having a blank parameter value if the incoming HTML value is empty.

Repository document deletion modified for better cleanup

Resolved in Pega Version 8.2.4

When using documents functionality, creating and uploading a document properly stored it, but deleting the document did not remove the associated files from storage. Whenever a document is created that has a file, instances Of Link-Attachment and Data-WorkAttach-File are also created. Previously, when the document was deleted, the associated instances and actual file were not deleted from the repositories but rather marked as Resolved-Withdrawn and hidden at the UI level. The system has now been updated so that when a document is deleted, the document attachment will also be deleted from all places like list, Tile, and document View, and reference instances like Link-Attachment and Data-WorkAttach-File instance will also be removed along with the actual file from the repository.

Fallback to Pulse notification added for empty incoming account in CallEmailAutomation

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.2

After upgrade, issues were seen with the sender receiving email notifications for sent messages when alias addresses were used for incoming emails. To resolve this, a fallback mechanism to use a Pulse notification has been added in cases where an incoming email account is not found in the pyCallEmailAutomation activity.

TextAnalyzerClass will be populated during upgrade if not present

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.2

After upgrading, the email channels were failing to process the emails and the error "Unable to load data page D_pyEntityClassMapping. Required parameters : ClassName cannot be blank" was seen in the tracer log. Analysis showed the email channels were failing to process the emails due to the pzUpgradeVersion property in Data-Channel-Email instances being inconsistent post-upgrade. To resolve this, the system has been updated so if the TextAnalyzerClass or name property is not present in old email channels (created in 7.4), it will populate that property in the upgrade activity with the default classname.

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.2

In order to support clearing a custom interaction page after clicking the "Reset" button on preview console, an extension point has been added to pyClearInteraction.

SR-D54120 · Issue 541351

Improved handling for attachments not using UTF-8 encoding

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.2

When an email was received that used a charset encoding other than UTF-8, special characters in the HTML body were not displayed and instead the replacement character was shown. To resolve this, the system will read the encoding from the email rather than use the meta tag, and will add the attachment's HTML encoding information in Data-WorkAttach-File so that the same can be used to process and display the original HTML properly.

SR-D57865 · Issue 520962

Added property check for outbound templated email reply

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.2

When a template was used for the first time for outbound correspondence, email was generated correctly. If the same template was used as the content for reply, the generated email skipped all styles. This was traced to a missing property check, and has been resolved.

SR-D87188 · Issue 551349

Mentioned user in Pulse correctly converted to hyperlink

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.3

In the Interaction portal, mentioning a user in Pulse using @ was not converting the name to the user name with hyperlink for Email Interactions. @ mentions were working as as expected in Phone Interactions. This problem was introduced as part of using OWASP to sanitize HTML user input in Rich Text support, and was due to OWASP converting @ to an HTML entity. To resolve this, the @ will be excepted from HTML conversion.

Optional feature to improve pxETReport performance

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.3

Poor performance was seen when using pxETReport. This was caused by the system loading the recent cases widget by looking up all the ET cases within last 30 days, opening each ET case to check if it is from the same pyFrom email address, and then if yes, opening its related service case. On a complex system, this was potentially a slow process. To improve performance, the "Related cases" feature can now be disabled through an overridable 'when' rule.

SR-D63638 · Issue 544015

Performance improvements for opening cases with embedded images

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.3

Opening cases containing email interactions was taking an excessive amount of time. This was traced to the use of embedded images, icons, etc, in the message body and signature, and was caused by the pyGetAttachmentsbyCID activity running multiple times due to discussion threads that were duplicated over and over. In some cases, more than 360 calls to the database were seen. This has been resolved by shifting some case opening processes to executing when the listener thread gets the mail, and storing the results in a .pynote property, and a URL will be used to get images instead of embedding them directly to the HTML. If preferred, this can be reverted to the previous behavior by changing the when rule (pyUseCachedHtmlForDisplay) to false.
