Pega Platform VersionHotfix NumberObserved Behavior
8.1.6HFix-58275System becomes unresponsive when bulk plan flattening, is attempted using “PCSFlattenAllPlansAfterDeleting” activity. As part of fix Queue-Method is replaced with queue for processor so that:
  1. Progress of plan level flattening, can be tracked.
  2. In case of any failure, reprocess the plans in broken queues.
  3. Control the parallel execution of plan flattening (by defining the appropriate number of threads in queue processor rule: “CREATEFLATTENEDPLAN” (which is defaulted to 1 thread on the queue-processor).
  4. This activity “DELETEANDREFLATTENPLAN” is refactored to truncate the table instead of obj-browse and obj-delete by handle.
  5. History class instances creation/inserts is disabled for flattened main classes to reduce the number of database interactions.

This SE addresses the below MU/Flattening issues and enhancements:

  1. Create a producttemplate and create product and plans from it. Now create copy from entities, for already created product and plans. Now run massupdate for producttemplate, in the target list screen the copied entities of product and plan are not retrieved.
  2. Flattened result (and data extracts) of product and plans is enhanced to include a new property to show the Network level covered/not covered/required/not required indicators.

  3. Mass update of product template/product and plans is enhanced to have an option to edit covered and required fields in “update used” and “add used scenarios”.

  4. An issue is fixed to not show up the products in the target selection (under the product templates) screen that didn’t have the benefits that are being updated in the Mass update “update used scenario”.

  2. Four new columns have been added in the DB table.
  3. Necessary code changes were done to populate the above mentioned columns.
