Email history will be stripped from case replies

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.2

When sending an email reply to a case, the entire email history (all previous emails in the email chain) was attached to the case as part of the reply.To resolve this, updates have been made so the system will strip history only when it's a follow-up mail. In addition, an issue with duplicate attachments has been corrected, and attachments from trailing mail will not be copied to a new post.

Support added for email addresses with hyphen in domain name

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.2

When attempting to enter a email with a hyphen '-' in the domain part of an email ID (test_ab@test-email.com), the reply button was getting disabled. This was caused by the regex validation implemented in the "pzValidateEmailAddress" (Work-Channel-Triage-Email) standard activity not covering all the possible cases. To resolve this, regex has been changed to instead use a platform-provided rule to ValidateEmailAddress.

New email template added to include full message history

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.2

Whenever a reply was sent from the email triage case, the outbound email sent only the actual reply along with the original email and latest reply only, skipping all remaining replies from email. For example, if there were 5 replies from case, replying 5th time generated an outbound email that contained only 5th reply (actual / current), original reply (which created the service case) and the latest reply (reply 4 in this case) and skipped reply 1 and reply 2. To resolve this, a new Outlook-style template has been added for use in replies that will include all of the previous exchanges.

Updated handling for unexpected character set in non-UTF-8 email

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.2

After upgrade, the listener properly created a case from an email, but the space character was being replaced by ? in the inbound emails. Investigation showed the messages did not appear properly in the UI if the email was sent using any encoding other than Unicode (UTF-8) and it had a special character set. To resolve this, the system will remove the attachment type which includes the charset.

Double quotes escaped in entity mapping

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.2

A usecase where the BOTS created the triage cases from the emails and pushed it to the Workgroup had an intermittent problem where the screen would freeze and no actions could be performed. perform any action on the same. Investigation showed this occurred when the entity text contained double quotes which is caused JSON to break on the client side. This generated an exception during rendering, and other onload scripts failed on load and blocked the entire thread. To resolve this, the system will now avoid the JSON break by escaping double quotes in entity mapping.

Documentation updated for troubleshooting inline images for email

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.2

Inline images were not showing by default when sending emails. To assist in this, the troubleshooting information for email has been updated with the following information: Correct configuration for display of inline images via Email bot is one that is shipped standard. To support Rich text in email display via Email bots, Email body must be stored 'As HTML attachment' (the setting on auto generated Service Email rule). In addition, no other setting on listener must be changed especially 'Embed inline images'(should remain unchecked) on Email listener rule. Combination of these 2 settings causes Email bot to save - 1. Email body as attachment 2. All inline images as attachment At runtime UI display, these 2 are recombined to display proper email. This is done in order to increase performance because images are lazily loaded.

PostgreSQL information updated in Platform Support Guide

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.2

The Platform Support Guide has been updated to reflect the following:Postgresql-42.2.14.jar supports PostgreSQL 8.2 or newer, and requires Java 6 or newer (Pega only supports Java 8 and 11); this driver also contains support for SSL and the javax.sql package. Prior versions of this .jar file have known problems. Do not use these versions: • 42.2.11 – creates an exception which stops Pega Platform startup • 42.2.12 and 42.2.13 – known vulnerability issues (CVEs) reported

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.

SR-D92688 · Issue 551339

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.

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.
