INC-128880 · Issue 592817

Handling added for angle brackets in legacy Chart control

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.5

When using Investigative Case Management, some report charts were not rendering correctly. This has been resolved by updating appendFormattedString in AbstractJsonDataGenerator.java to escape angled brackets (< and >) before appending the input.

Resolved drill up doubling the filter box

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.5

When opening a report with a visual graph, clicking on one of the filtered options, leaving this box open (not submitting it) and then clicking on a bar in the visual graph of the report showed the contents of the graph, but then clicking on the report link to go back to the report overview caused a doubled filter box to be displayed. The report would then have to be reopened before being able to continue. The problem was that the value of .pyUI.pyConfigSecToShow was still set to "filter" after the drill down. When the drill back up happened, the report was trying to show the filter configuration section from before but the context was no longer available and it failed. This has been resolved by adding a call to pzCancelFilterLogicChanges in pzDrillUpReport to set the filters to the previous values and reset the value of pyConfigSecToShow.

Shortcut works for copying reports into private rulesets

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.5

Copying out of the box shortcuts to other categories in the Report Browser was failing with the error ".pyShortcutName: The rule name pyTimePerStage is a reserved name (starts with px, py, or pz) and is not created in a Pega- ruleset." This was caused by the system trying to create a new rule with a py prefix in a non pega- ruleset, which was a missed use case in the refactoring work of report actions to use the Record API. This has been corrected by moving the report ID generation logic from the activity pzValidateSaveAsInput to a new Rule-Utility-Function in the ReportingUtils library called pzGenerateUniqueRecordName so that it can also be used by pzCopyShortcutPostActivity7 when the shortcut's ID is prefixed with px, py, or pz.

The Report Resource Limit is applied on Job Scheduler

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.5

The Job Scheduler was ignoring the application-wide limit for maximum number of rows to retrieve that was set on the Report > Settings landing page. If the limit was set on the Data Access tab of the report, it was honored. If it was set on the Application settings rule Pega-RulesEngine.pyMaxRecords it was not honored. This behavior was due to pzUpdateSystemSettings being called by pxRetrieveReportData. In pzUpdateSystemSettings, .pyContent.pyMaxRecords was updated to match the value in px.Requestor.pyReportSettings.pyMaxRecords. In some cases, that was not available and the max amount of records was not limited in that case. This has been resolved by updating pzUpdateSystemSettings to pull pyMaxRecords using @getRuleSystemSetting().

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.

SR-D19299 · Issue 511324

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.

SR-D21527 · Issue 491739

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.
