Hotfix hashmap cleanup improved

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.7

A DL installation failed with an out-of-memory error. It was observed that many CacheEntry( hashmaps were being created to store the details for each hotfix but that were then never cleared. This has been resolved by adding the finally block in class to call the shutdown method for proper cleanup. In addition, the default command line utility (prpcUtils) has been updated to use JVM settings of Xmx 4GB and capture a heap dump if an out-of-memory error is encountered. The auto-generated prconfig.xml has also been updated to leverage its minimal startup setting which will avoid loading the conclusion cache into memory.

Thread cleanup improved for application switching to resolve skin issue

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.7

After opening a Case from the HR application and then switching to another application to open another case, the Review Harness skin control was not loading correctly. This was traced to a thread cleanup issue relating to the Portal: on application switch, the system should clean up all threads created on the current application before switching to new application, but in this case thread cleanup was not happening as expected due to conflicts in the unload event handling. This has been corrected.

Visibility on client check removed to enable Pulse on click

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.7

When Pulse was configured on click of a icon, the comment section was not visible. Investigation showed that at the time of DOM load, pyMessage property was not available in the DOM because 'Run visibility condition on client' was checked by default. Visibility on client checks have been removed to resolve this issue.

Logic update made to PrepareColors to resolve calculation ambiguity

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.7

When a Report Definition was summarized, the executed report showed a graph for multiple categories but generated the error "No data to display" if given a single category. This was traced to an ambiguity in the Java syntax of the Rule-Utility-Function pzPrepareColors that led to a NegativeArraySizeException on a customer's environment. To resolve this, parentheses have been placed around a ternary operator to ensure the correct order of operations.

Improved upgrade handling for tables using classes with property references

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.7

After upgrade, some page property values were blank and exposed database columns did not contain the values. Investigation showed that the reference properties did not have context and hence column population was not able to determine their value. To resolve this, instead of doing column population for all the columns, the system will identify classes that have property references and that are being optimized as part of upgrade process and maintain a list of specific columns to update.

Check logic added for change in datetime

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.7

After selecting a valid date in the calendar UI, clicking outside of the DateTime control caused the date to disappear when using the Microsoft Internet Explorer browser. Investigation showed that the order of events execution is different in Microsoft Internet Explorer and Google Chrome, so that by the time the getReadOnlyFormatting method was called, the data-changed attribute had already been updated to 'false'. This caused the read-only formatting to not be applied so the data-display-value was considered to be empty. To resolve this, a check has been added to better detect the change so that read-only formatting gets applied.

pxGenerateExcelFile updated for handling blank dates

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.7

When using a custom template for exporting to Excel, blank DateTime property column values defaulted to the current date. To resolve this, the pxGenerateExcelFile activity has been updated to ensure that an empty date will be exported as blank and that given dates will appear in the correct datetime format.

Added explicit step page to resolve null-pointer exception with custom error message

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.7

A null pointer exception was generated during case run time harness refresh after a custom error message was inserted. This was traced to a blank step page related to the custom message, and has been resolved by adding a primary step page at step 10 of the New(Work-) activity to prevent the null-pointer exception on harness reload.

Filter added to ensure correct context for proposition strategy rules

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.7

Given two applications (ex App1 and App2) hosted on the same domain where App2 was built on App1, trying to create a strategy rule in App1 and do a test run strategy using the propositional data component which internally uses App2 propositions generated the error: Failed to find a 'RULE-DECISION-DECISIONPARAMETERS' with the name 'GROUP_2'. There were 1 rules with this name in the rulebase, but none matched this request." Investigation showed the strategy was using the PropositionNoCacheUtils and PropositionTools java classes to load the propositions during run time. In these classes, the group classes were browsed from the db irrespective of the application context, causing the strategy run to fail as it was not able to access the decision data rules in other applications which shared the same SR class as the current application. To resolve this, a filter has been added to the PropositionNoCacheUtils and PropositionTools java classes to filter out the groups that are not in the current application context.

Return from drilldown in frameless portal corrected

Resolved in Pega Version 8.1.7

Drill up after drilling down on a dashboard chart in a frameless portal (such as Case Worker or Case Default) was throwing an exception. This was caused by the top-level page generated during drilldown not having pyRetainPage set to true, causing it to be removed from the clipboard by doUIAction. This has been resolved by updating runReport to set pyRetainPage if it needs to create the top-level page.
