Email Discussion Thread retains Formatting

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.1

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.

ChatMashup loading issue with IDP resolved

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.1

When using a harness containing chat scripts via Mashup that called an activity to set parameters, attempting to launch the Mashup from an external application failed on the first attempt: an incorrect URL was generated and the activity was not triggered, resulting in an empty harness. The second attempt to launch the Mashup worked as expected. This was seen when using an IDP initiated Login with query string - pyActivity= classname.ActivityName, and there was a workaround to use SP initiated login or to use the activity URL directly on the IDP portal. Investigation showed that the resourcePath was coming as http in SSL enabled system, but the reqURI was still https. To correct this, the system has been updated so that if the reqContextURI starts with https and the requestURL starts with http, then the requestURL will be converted to https.

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.

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.

Webchat bot interaction box cleared on submit

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.3

After upgrade, when using Google Chrome responses to webchat bot questions were not getting cleared from the chat input window after the enter/send button was clicked. This has been resolved by changing the order of refresh section and set value and disabling submit on refresh when refreshing pzSubmitArea.

SR-D86837 · Issue 547992

Webchat interaction timeout updated

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.3

Interaction timeout was not working as expected in Webchat channels. This was traced to the system looking for total interaction timeout instead of user inactive timeout, along with the Web chat interaction case clipboard page being stale. To resolve this, timestamp propagation has been updated for pxProcess in Work-Channel-Interaction.pxAcquireInteraction.

Removed redundant Microsoft Outlook email interaction chain

Resolved in Pega Version 8.6.2

When opening an email interaction case, the email editor user interface area showed the complete email chain of the email for every new message that came in related to the case. This was traced to the difference in the selectors that various email clients use to construct a response to an email with email history in it, and has been resolved by updating the selectors for Microsoft Outlook in pyRichTextEmailHistorySelector so no conversation is repeated when using that client.

Resource added to extract email threading code from message body

Resolved in Pega Version 8.6.2

In some scenarios the case ID was not being sent in the subject of email replies as expected, and the secure tracking code was part of the email body instead. That caused replies back to the email thread to create a new email interaction case instead of properly threading the new message into the conversation. Investigation traced this to some email clients removing space after the tracking code. To resolve this, an update has been made which will extract the tracking code from email-content html if it is found and otherwise fallback to the email body.

INC-178990 · Issue 664613

Added handling for reloading portal while ChatBot is active

Resolved in Pega Version 8.6.2

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.
