Enhancements for upgrading in multi-tenant environment

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.2

Some muti-tenant installations use the same applications or rule instances with the same pzInsKeys for different tenants. This can cause upgrades to time out due to the system fetching all pzInsKeys (which will have duplicates) and working with them in a default batch size of 500 each over 4 threads. This led to the same keys potentially being allocated and processed in different threads, resulting in duplicate processing and timeouts. This has been resolved by updating the select query to fetch the tentantid and pzInskeys in the MT system to avoid duplicate work in multiple threads. In addition, running Generate Declarative indexes fetches the pzinskeys and generates indexes for each record, but before generating, the existing index for the record is deleted and then inserted. Because the delete query to generate the index was not tenant aware, all of the records for the key were deleted for the tenants for that key, but the new index was created only in one tenant. This has been resolved by enhancing the DELETE query to be tenant aware, which will avoid deleting the indexes for all the tenants given an index key.

Added null checks for RAP extraction

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.2

After creating a RAP file that Included the History class and adding a List Viewer to filter the instances, no instances were added into the RAP file when trying to preview the product rule. Investigation showed there was a null pointer exception that occurred while acquiring the content page from the clipboard, and null checks have been added to resolve this issue.

Deployment Manager rollback works for directed inheritance

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.2

Rollback was not working correctly in Deployment Manager for history classes using directed inheritance. This was traced to a redundant check in AbstractHistoryPageKeeper that enforced the history pages pattern inherited from one of the base history classes, and this has now been removed.

JMX logging added to upgrade diagnostics

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.2

In order to improve diagnostic information, infoForced loggers have been added for debugging upgrade issues related to JMX calls to enable and disable rules creation.

Improved ScalarPropertiesWriter logging

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.2

In order to improve diagnostics, debug loggers have been added to ScalarPropertiesWriter.java to print column name in the logs while creating map between column names and their values from clipboard page.

Initialized entryName for light weight inventory instance

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.2

When running deployment on a new pipeline created for the next minor version, once the deployment process got to the point of showing aged updates, the “view aged updates” came back as blank screen. Viewing the logs showed the aged update elements come back but were missing the pyName associated with them. Investigation showed that the system did not have support for setting the mEntryName for LightweightInventoryInstance objects. This has been resolved by adding a junit to ensure that getEntryName() doesn't return as null and should be equal to pzInsKey.

Hot Fix Manager updated to use installation order for schema import

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.2

Schema changes were not being imported during the hot fix manager DL import process. Investigation showed this was due to hotfixes in the DL being iterated over from newest to oldest, causing older hotfixes to replace the value added to a map by the newer. To resolve this, the system has been updated to use hotfix install order, which considers selected and dependent hotfixes, rather than ordering newest to oldest. This ensures that newer table representations will override older rather than the other way around.

Updated upgrade handling for migrating work objects

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.6

After upgrading from Pega 6.2 to 8.3, the work migrated work objects were missing SLAs due to missed entries in the assignment tables (PC_ASSIGN_WORKLIST/ PC_ASSIGN_WORKBASKET) . The SLA was firing, but the processing failed due to the fact the runtime could not resolve a 'AddHistoryPage' library function. In this case, multiple upgrades of the application dating back to Pega 4 resulted in the runtime context containing older ruleset versions in higher ruleset versions, hiding the underlying Pega 8 version of the rule. For releases prior to Pega 7.3, Rule-Application was stored in pr4_rule and will be migrated to pr4_rule_application during upgrades. However, since Context Upgrade is run before Optimize Newly Exposed Columns, the pyDependsOnName won't always be populated. To resolve this, the system will filter based on the value in the blob rather than the exposed column so there will be a value regardless of the upgrade-from version.

Configuration added for extending queue processor timeout

Resolved in Pega Version 8.3.6

Alerts for queue processor (QP) items which took more than 15 minutes to run could result in the system marking the node as 'unhealthy'. In environments with Pega Health Check enabled, this would shut down the node gracefully. It was not possible to change this default as it was hardcoded. In order to support systems that may have custom processes that run beyond 15 minutes, a a new setting has been exposed that allows configuration of the interval after which a node with long-running queue processor is marked as unhealthy and is restarted. By default this remains 900000 milliseconds / 900 seconds / 15 minutes, but it may be adjusted up to 24 hours to avoid premature node shutdown. The stale thread detection mechanism will take that setting into account and use the provided value or default to 15 minutes if the value was not provided. In addition, the threshold's units in the UI have been changed from ms to seconds.

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.
