INC-130299 · Issue 583924

Updated SSO operator authentication handling after passivation

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.9

With SSO enabled and the pyAccessGroupsAdditional value list populated with the Mapping tab, attempting to access an expired session with an old cookie resulted in a stale thread exception while mapping value list attributes. This was due to using an AuthServicePage which was created by another session thread that had become stale for current session, and has been resolved by updating the code to call the authenticateoperator method on the authservicepage copy.

Added handling for password containing a colon on Pega Client for Windows

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.9

If a password included a colon (:), it was possible to log in on the desktop but not Pega Client for Windows. This was due to authentication files specific to the Windows mobility client, and handling has been added to resolve the issue.

INC-137709 · Issue 584291

New security role added to restrict access to development-specific classes

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.9

A new security role and related RAROs have been implemented to allow better security for end users on non-BAC systems. This restricts access to Rules and execution of activities on classes that are development-specific.

CDK key loading modified for better database compatibility

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.9

Users were unable to log on to the system and received the error "There has been an issue; please consult your system administrator." Investigation showed the log errors stating "(dataencryption.DataKeyProvider) ERROR localhost - Could not get CDK from systemKeyManagementCache - System CDK is null". This was an issue specific to the MS SQL Server database when there were 6 or more CDKs in the database: CDK keys are loaded from database into Cache using an SQL statement which had the ORDER clause. By default, the ORDER clause treats NULL values differently on different databases, and this caused MS SQL databases to not load a necessary CDK key. To resolve this, the SQL query has been modified so the result will be the same for all supported daatbases (Oracle, Postgres & MS SQL Server).

Handling added for samesite cookies with httpOnly

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.9

After enabling samesite cookies on Google Chrome to support Mashup login, intermittent issues were seen with a non-mashup login where entering the OperatorID and password only resulted in a refresh of the login screen. This was traced to a scenario where an httponly cookie attribute was present along with samesite cookie attributes, and has been resolved by adding handling for a condition where samesite is set and httpOnly is enabled.

SR-D95148 · Issue 557485

Port validation updated for redirect URI

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.9

When an offline app for windows client was generated, trying to login via SSO resulted in the error "invalid redirect_uri". This was traced to the system validating the whole loopback redirection URL, e.g. "http://127.0.0.1:1234/redirection", including the port number. To enhance flexibility, an update has been made so that the port number will not be validated, allowing the client to establish it based on availability at the moment of the request to the authorization service. NOTE: As a best practice, a loopback URL should not be configured as a redirect URI. If a loopback URL is configured, then at run time the port number will not be validated, and the client application can use any available port on the system including ports that may not be intended for use.

Retry logic added for downloading upgraded rules

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.9

A Rules upgrade failed while downloading applications from the maintenance server due to an SFTP server connection failure. This has been resolved by adding logic to retry if the first connection attempt fails.

INC-130695 · Issue 587659

Enhancements for upgrading in multi-tenant environment

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.9

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.

INC-132218 · Issue 573359

Resolved buffer overflow for Migration loadDatabase

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.9

A Rules upgrade failed in the Migration step at loadDatabase stage, involving the move of all the table records from old schema to new schema. This was traced to the inability of Migration to load blob of sizes more than 100 MB, and has been resolved by updating Migration to use byte[] to read the blob content with the help of metadata that contains blob length.

INC-133202 · Issue 574701

TableRenameUtil hashing improved

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.9

During index name generation, the algorithm that was responsible for index name uniqueness was sometimes insufficient and cerated a loop condition. This has been resolved by using a stronger hash algorithm and refactoring the code that could result in a loop.
