SR-D90687 · Issue 560431

IOException handling improved to resolve broken pipe errors

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.2

Frequent "connection reset by peers" exceptions were being generated and broken-pipe exceptions were seen in the logs. Investigation traced the issue to unhanded IOExceptions on the server side that were a result of the client application not always closing the TCP connection gracefully. To resolve this, error handling for IOExceptions has been improved.

Directory traversal blocked in zip import

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.2

One of the files contained in a zip archive was not deleted from the system after zip import. This was due to the file being created by a third-party archive that included of a directory traversal character that caused it to be inflated outside of the temp directory. To resolve this, a check has been added to that a file with directory traversal characters in its name will not be inflated.

JDBC URL handling added for Oracle over TCPS

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.2

While attempting to upgrade an environment over TCPS, the generateDDL.sh script was failing. The same environment ran without issue on Tomcat with the same URL. Investigation showed the JDBC url was not correctly generated while running the upgrade: in a standard scenario, there will be no spaces in the JDBC URL specified. However, because Oracle can send spaces as part of JDBC URL and cause this issue, an update has been made which will quote the JDBC URL argument for the ant target in setupDDL.xml.

SR-D84364 · Issue 551403

Check for circular references added to SearchInventoryImpl to prevent recursive call

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.2

An out of memory error was traced to SearchInventoryImpl infinitely recursing over a clipboard property, where the child property referenced a parent property and resulted in an endless loop. This has been resolved with the addition of a depth check to ensure that the search does not recurse infinitely.

ProductInfoReader updated to fetch only most recent version information

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.2

After upgrade, running Hfix scanner on Pega Marketing 8.2 displayed missed critical Hfixes for Pega Marketing 8.1. This has been resolved by modifying ProductInfoReader.runQuery to fetch only latest version of DAPF instances during a scan.

SR-D98404 · Issue 558207

Handling added for hotfix Rule-Application instances

Resolved in Pega Version 8.4.2

A null pointer error during DL file expansion performed as part of the second phase of a hotfix installation caused the hotfix install to fail. The null-pointer exception was thrown because the code, primarily used for export, performed a database lookup of a Rule-Application and assumed the response would be non-null without checking the result. During export the Rule-Application would normally exist because the system would have interacted with it already during the export by identifying it and writing it to the archive. During phased hotfix installation, rules are staged to the database in a different table during the first phase and reconstituted during the second phase. The scenario for this error was a missed corner case specific to the unusual combination of including Rule-Application instances in a platform hotfix. To resolve this and prevent further issues, handling has been added for this use case.

Run Ruleset Cleanup defaults to true

Resolved in Pega Version 8.2.6

After upgrade, the rule categories and rules were not showing correctly in the App view of the Dev Portal. Many warning messages were also logged related to the Decisioning DM Sample application. This was traced to the rules cleanup script not running properly. While there was a workaround of applying the ruleset cleanup scripts manually after removing the queries that reference the pr_engineclasses table, the cleanup will now be set to run by default (run.ruleset.cleanup=true). In addition, the logic to determine which RuleSets to include has been simplified and most of the pr4_rule_vw deletions have been combined.

SR-D38318 · Issue 519710

Data pages explicitly cleared after QP use

Resolved in Pega Version 8.2.6

The Util Node was showing as Offline in the Search Landing Page, and when Jobs were submitted for execution from other Nodes the message "Detected active run with unreachable nodes" was logged. The util node, configured as a backgroundprocessing node, was running QPs; the queue size for custom QPs is 500 messages /queue items per minute, but investigation showed the requestor level and thread level data pages corresponding to the QP activities were not being cleared after use. This led to high heap memory issues that made the node unreachable, and has been resolved by adding code to explicitly remove the data pages when processing has finished.

Hazelcast upgraded to resolve node startup issue

Resolved in Pega Version 8.2.6

Post data upgrade, the ADM tier failed to start and the error "java.lang.IllegalStateException: Node failed to start!" appeared. This was traced to a dormant bug in Hazelcast 3.11 that caused starting nodes to fail when the Hazelcast master node was shutting down, which was exposed by recent Pega changes made to enable parallel restarts of nodes in Cloud environments. Hazelcast delivered a fix for the parallel restart problem and the hotfixed jar has been merged into the platform. In addition, previous logic for loading Admin Studio waited 30 seconds before timing out when fetching information for each node. This caused issues with large clusters and Admin Studio not loading. The logic has been updated in the Admin Studio UI to load the page despite delays/issues waiting for nodes to respond to the gathering of cluster data, and the algorithm to detect remote-call timeout has been updated and is applicable to batch operation.

SR-D48433 · Issue 514857

Exception handling added for Redirect URL fetched from GRS

Resolved in Pega Version 8.2.6

When the application definition under “integration and security" tab was configured to use "Store in web storage provider" to allow choosing the storage name and the authentication profile, configuring the authentication profile to use an OpenID connect provider with the pyEndpointURL property given as a global resource setting such as (=D_SharepointDetails.url) was not working as expected. Clicking browse in the application definition sent the request to the OpenID connect provider and was returned with the error "The reference =D_SharepointDetails.url is not valid. Reason: Page name (D_SharepointDetails) from indirect reference was not found." This was traced to the Redirect URL (fetched from GRS) throwing an unhandled exception, and has been resolved.
