SR-D23239 · Issue 499591

Support added for multi-operator SAML logins

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4

When a SAML user logged in by Single Sign-On (SAML), the system processed the login to portal as a different operator if there was a function on the Attribute field under Operator identification in the SAML authentication service. In this scenario, using an expression for operator provisioning did not work because all SAML login sessions resolved to same first operator due to parseAndEvaluateExpression() in ExpressionHelper.java ignoring new expression arguments if the expression page already existed. To support the use of multiple operator logins in this format, the system has been updated to clone a new expression page for every session and update it with the correct expression arguments.

XSS protection added for parameter page properties

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4

An XSS vulnerability was seen with the Edge browser when run on visibility on client check was enabled with dynamic layouts and some properties were accessed from parameter page. Because run on visibility on client check is not required in this scenario, is has been removed and the values will be accessed from the server instead.

SR-D47685 · Issue 514647

Cookie logging restored

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4

As part of security updates, Cookies were restricted from being logged. However, this caused some business use cases such as a custom function call to obtain the list of cookies that are present in the application to stop working. To resolve this, the cookie logging restriction has been reverted.

Updates to displaying embedded images in cases

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.6

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.

INC-152776 · Issue 621243

Check added for HTML and linefeed combined in email

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.6

In the Interaction right hand pane Email triage widget, additional line breaks were seen when displaying email message data that contained table tags. This was a missed use case for email which contains both HTML and '\n', which resulted in the system replacing '\n' with < / br >. This has been resolved by adding a check whether the content has HTML tags which will avoid the replacement.

INC-165188 · Issue 635774

Third-party links allowed to pass target attribute in anchor

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.6

Attempting to connect to Docusign, a third party application, via Email in an interaction portal was not working, and the error "account.docusign.com refused to connect" appeared. This was caused by the HTML data being sanitized so the attribute 'target' was not allowed to pass and the application could not open in a new tab. To resolve this, an update has been made that will allow the target attribute for an anchor tag.

INC-155276 · Issue 622816

Null check added for step page

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.6

After creating and adding new Access Roles and application 'Access When' to the privileges instead of Production level, during run time the error "runtime.IndeterminateConditionalException: Trying to evaluate Rule-Access-When conditions L:IsProdAccess when there is no page to evaluate them against" appeared for the specific privileges. This was traced to a missed use case where the system falls back to the step page if the page for evaluating the 'when' condition is null, which did not account for scenarios where the step page can be null. To resolve this, a null check has been added which will fetch the primary page if the step page for the access 'when' condition is null.

INC-156647 · Issue 626293

Improved disconnected requestor cleanup for FieldService

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.6

A large number of requestors from FieldService with the status as 'Disconnected' were accumulating and causing performance issues. This was traced to the requestors not getting passivated due to users not logging out and new requestors being created for the same users next time, and was caused by the value of the DSS Initialization/PersistRequestor being set as "OnTimeout". When the DSS prconfig/timeout/browser/default is not configured, the default browser requestor timeout is 60 minutes. In this scenario, requestors were not passivating as the requestor passivation timeout was set to the refresh token lifetime for mobile users, which was very large and overwrote the DSS value. This has been resolved by removing the code which set the passivation timeout to the OAuth2 refresh token lifetime.

INC-127591 · Issue 564820

isAuthenticated checks trimmed for Performance Improvement

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.2

In order to improve performance, a duplicate check of pxIsRepositoryAuthenticated has been removed from the Function Rule.

INC-127859 · Issue 564621

Email image retrieval switched to Lazy Load

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.2

In email, multiple images being loaded at once resulted in a performance impact. To resolve this, the fetching of inline images has been modified to use Lazy Load optimization which will retrieve file content from S3 storage on a need basis.
