SR-D18879 · Issue 500643

Logic update made to PrepareColors to resolve calculation ambiguity

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4

When a Report Definition was summarized, the executed report showed a graph for multiple categories but generated the error "No data to display" if given a single category. This was traced to an ambiguity in the Java syntax of the Rule-Utility-Function pzPrepareColors that led to a NegativeArraySizeException on a customer's environment. To resolve this, parentheses have been placed around a ternary operator to ensure the correct order of operations.

Support added for calling Export to Excel directly from RD

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4

When using Export to Excel directly from a report definition, a date column specified using pxDatetime was shown as applied date format in the resulting Excel file. The column was formatted as expected if the export was called from an activity. This was traced to the recent refactoring of Export to Excel: it was not expected that it would be called directly, but rather that it would be invoked from a report viewer ruleform. In order to support this direct use, step calls have been added to the pzRDExportWrapper activity to call pzMergeAutoGen before the engine call. This step will merge the pyModes pages from pxDateTime control.

Hidden filters will not be shown on the resulting report

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4

After setting up a Report Definition to be visible in report browser with all filters hidden, editing and saving the report resulted in the filter values being visible on the report. This has been resolved by modifying pzResolveCopyFilters activity so that If the filter view option is "Read only, allow no changes" and "Filter not visible in Viewer", it will skip copying the filter values on to the report definition page.

Corrected Flex UI Alignment issues in Microsoft Internet Explorer 11

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4

In Microsoft Internet Explorer 11, a UI rendering issue was observed when Report Definition uses many columns. This was traced to Flex not being fully supported in Microsoft Internet Explorer 11, causing the flexResize function inside pzpega_ui_doc_lifecycle to not perform well when calculating harness width based on content. While there was a workaround of using the flag "pega.u.d.DISABLE_FLEX_RESIZE" to indicate the system should not execute that function, the issue has been resolved by setting table layout to auto.

SR-D22548 · Issue 502077

Handling added for special characters in Report Category name

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4

When a Report Category was created with a special character such as ' ( , ) (ex "ABC's Reports"), the special character was not correctly shown at the Category Selection in Report Widget of the Dashboard Configuration. This was traced to the category names being sanitized against XSS attacks twice, once by the dropdown itself, and once by the activity pzRBCategoriesPostProcess, which is shared between this dropdown and the report browser. To resolve this, the system will make a simplified copy of pzRBCategoriesPostProcess for the report widget's use case and continue to use that as the post processing activity for D_pzReportWidgetCategories.

SR-D22885 · Issue 494166

Added check for empty class properties to report scheduler

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4

A report that was looking for events in the most recent X hours by using the "Difference In Hours" filter function ran in the foreground but failed with an exception when running under the scheduler. The same report ran as expected in background without the filter. This was traced to a classname property not being set on the clipboard, and has been resolved by adding a check for empty classes on the clipboard when scheduling a report.

SR-D26815 · Issue 500192

Updated support for numeric values in text columns during Excel export

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4

After creating a report definition that included currency and percentage as a columns, the currency, percentage, and number format were not shown as expected for the locale when the report was exported to Excel. This was an inadvertent side effect of work performed to resolve issues for text columns formatted by non-numeric controls, and has been resolved by moving the support for numeric values in Text columns from ReportUIField to NumericReportUIField.

SR-D27528 · Issue 501371

Return from drilldown in frameless portal corrected

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4

Drill up after drilling down on a dashboard chart in a frameless portal (such as Case Worker or Case Default) was throwing an exception. This was caused by the top-level page generated during drilldown not having pyRetainPage set to true, causing it to be removed from the clipboard by doUIAction. This has been resolved by updating runReport to set pyRetainPage if it needs to create the top-level page.

SR-D27622 · Issue 498771

Export to Excel updated to pass custom time format

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4

When running a report definition the date fields showed the proper date and time, but when exporting to Excel the time showed as the 12:00:00 AM default. Investigation showed that when using edit columns to get the date/time in a specified format and the Data Access tab “Ignore formatting when exporting to excel” option was not enabled, the BasicDateTimeReportUIField class's getFormattedValue method was using the column's reported type to decide whether the clipboard values would be parsed as date+time or date only. This has been resolved by updating the export function.

SR-D27687 · Issue 500054

Mashup Export to Excel works on first use

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4

If a report was opened from Mashup and exported to Excel, only one record was given regardless of the actual size of the report. If the mashup main page was refreshed, the open and export process worked correctly. This has been corrected by adding a call to pzSetQueryDefaults in pzRDExportWrapper when the requestor is initialized for Mashup.
