Handling added for response command beginning with "call"

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.5

There was an issue if a response command in a web chatbot channel started with the word "call". This was due to the storage and handling of the commands in the decision table. There was a workaround of avoiding the use of "call" to start a command, but the issue has been resolved by adding quotes around the decision table result to support this response command structure.

Rich HTML handling added for outbound email

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.5

The HTML content was visible in the received email when replying from the email pane in the existing email interaction. This has been resolved by adding logic to handle rich HTML for outbound email.

Resolved exception from isArchived

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.5

After update, the message "ERROR - Could not retrieve the database time" was seen. This was traced to the interactions of the isArchived API with a version of Oracle, and has been resolved by adding code to skip the isArchived() API call if pzIsPegaCloud is set to false.

Added handling for reloading portal while ChatBot is active

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.5

An issue was seen with UI rendering when a customer tried to reload the portal where the chatbot is deployed. Investigation showed that this was caused by the screen going to pyCreate harness instead of ChatPerform harness due tot he unexpected refresh, and has been resolved by updating the handling for the Chat Work page and the business case so that pyWorkPage is always Work-Channel-Chat.

Added handling for legacy HTML formatting in Email Manager Bot

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.5

When implementing Email Manager Bot features, pyBody fields were removing the additional spaces and causing the NLP model to not extract the correct data. Investigation showed HTML formatting from older version of Microsoft Outlook created nbsp; instead of space. This has been resolved by ensuring nbsp is replaced with spaces before calling JSoup clean.

Training data correctly added to model

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.5

Negative training data was not getting added to the entity model. This was traced to logic used to remove consecutive spaces which was incorrectly removing new lines and leading to entity detection of entities such as address line. This logic has now been removed.

Documentation updated for accents and special characters used in search

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.5

The "Pega search API" article has been updated to reflect that the search functionality in Pega Platform does not match accented words with unaccented. For example, searching for santé and sante will retrieve different results. In addition, Domain Specific Language (DSL) includes special characters for use when searching, for example '-', '_', '!', '@'. However, the system retrieves various results depending on the way the special characters are used in the search query. If the query contains special characters that are not escaped, the system may retrieve incorrect results. For example, not escaping the slash mark in the 25/02 query may cause the system to ignore the special character.

Updates to displaying embedded images in cases

Resolved in Pega Version 8.7

Sending an email with an embedded image to the email ID associated with the email listener successfully created the interaction case, but the embedded image was not displayed when the case was opened from the work-basket. A rule-not found exception was seen in the tracer for pyGetImageDisplay, the rule responsible for displaying the images in the ET pane. Investigation showed that when URLObfuscation was turned on, the decryption of the URL was not successful because "&" had been encoded to '& amp;'. This has been resolved by calling the activity pyGetImageForDisplay using URLMapping instead. An additional issue was seen with displaying images in the email interaction pane where the additional empty new lines moved the image outside the intended place. This was traced to a customization for the reply area which used the pyHighlightedMessage property and converted newlines to br tags even in HTML mode. To resolve this, pyHighlightedMessage has ben modified to convert newlines to br tags only if the mode is plain text.

Correct Email Bot training text highlighted

Resolved in Pega Version 8.7

When a piece of text was selected and tagged against an entity while training the Email Bot, the entity selection was misplaced and partially covered the actual text selected. The incorrect selection was then carried forward to the training data spreadsheet. To resolve this, rule changes have been made that will update HTML entities to HTML encoded forms.

INC-166844 · Issue 651407

Email bot updated to handle negative and positive feedback on the same text

Resolved in Pega Version 8.7

When positive and negative training was done on the same piece of text, text extraction by Email Bot failed. For example, when using the sentence. “John Smith plays cricket”, the bot detects “John” as person name. If user wants to train the bot to detect “John Smith” as the entity, the user needs to first remove “John” and build the model, and then select “John Smith” and build the model again. In this case, the email bot never again detects “John Smith” as person name due to the negative feedback given for “John”. This was traced to the entities having same the startIndex/endIndex, and has been resolved by removing entities of the same modelName which have the pyIsRemoved property as true so that multiple entity models are detected on the same word.
