INC-144555 · Issue 603069

Changelog cleanup added for de-optimized properties

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.3

Unwanted optimization was automatically added to properties for the Application-Work-Casetype class created using the wizard in the App Studio. Attempts to remove the optimization did not work: the property advance tab was showing the optimized classes details even after deleting and recreating the property. When a property is optimized the system adds entries to pr_changelog for the list of classes it has optimized. When the property was deleted, the pr_changelog was not cleared. This was a missed usecase, and has been resolved by overriding the Cleanup activity at Rule-Obj-Property class to delete the pr_changelog entry associated with that if it is present.

Database primary keys generated as NONCLUSTERED for imports

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.3

When a primary key was defined for a table and the table was exported and then imported, the primary key was generated as CLUSTERED. This resulted in an MS SQL Cluster Index violation because all Pega-shipped tables generated during installs/upgrades have a PK constraint index with NONCLUSTERED index type as it allows for a longer key. This was a missed use case, and has been resolved by updating the system such that when importing with MS SQL database, the primary key index is made NONCLUSTERED all the time so it will be consistent with the base platform.

Pega Catalog custom upload control modified

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.3

Attempting to upload a file caused the system to hang and thread dumps were seen in the logs. Investigation traced the issue to the custom control used to upload the catalog, which was posting the entire content in form data rather than sending a multi-part request. The control contained both legacy code which used form.submit() and encoding along with new code that used SafeURL and sent an async request. With this, encoding could not be set to multi-part in case of an AJAX request. To resolve this, the catalog upload control has been modified to use the appropriate legacy code that performs form.submit() and sets the encoding properly.

httpclients library upgraded

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.3

Package import/export was not working using prpcserviceutils, and a SSLPeerUnverifiedException" error was seen. This was traced to an issue with the third party library httpclients v4.5.9, and has been resolved by upgrading to httpclients v4.5.13.

Filter considers all instances pages during deployment

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.3

During package deployment, attempting to use Filter to skip some of the instances only displayed the result of the current active page instead of all pages. This was an unintended consequence of previous work, and has been resolved by adding the logic to strip quotes in the value and adding the "Pagination activity manages filtering" checkbox by default.

Kerberos handling updated for database remap

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.3

After upgrade from Pega v7.2 to Pega v8.4, using Kerberos authentication was failing during the remap task. Investigation showed that null username and password values were being passed to SchemaAssignmentUtility along with the flags as arguments, causing the utility to misinterpret the arguments. As arguments should be populated only when flags and values are available and not null, an update has been made which will set the username and password flags only if they are not null in the Remap database tables target.

SR-D22505 · Issue 493366

Circumstancing template and definitions assembly modified to avoid calling RD

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4

After deploying a new rollout, errors such as "Only authenticated client may start this activity: RULE-OBJ-ACTIVITY RULE-OBJ-REPORT-DEFINITION" and "You lack access required to execute RULE-OBJ-ACTIVITY RULE-OBJ-REPORT-DEFINITION" appeared. Investigation showed that during an unauthenticated session, executing Report Definitions or accessing database (with securityCheck enabled) are not allowed. When someone wants to use circumstanced rules during the custom authentication process, and if the circumstancing rules are not assembled yet, then assembly of the circumstanced rules triggers the assembly of circumstance template and definitions. During this process the system used Report definition, but since execution of RD is not allowed without authentication the assembly was failing. This has been resolved with two changes: the MergeDefintions activity which is invoked during assembly of CircumstanceTemplate : has replaced the pxRetrieverReportData activity (which invokes RD to fetch circumstances definitions), and the GetAllDefinitionRows activity which is invoked from MergeDefinitions : has replaced Obj-open in step 3.

Security update for RequestMap error logging

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4

In HttpAPI, the RequestMap contains Cookie information. In error conditions, this map gets logged. An update has been made to ensure that the Cookie value is not logged if there is an error.
