Agent/SDK Updates

Agent 2.71.0

Added We now have the option to use BroadcastChannel for cross-frame communication. This only impacts apps that use multiple iframes. Admins can enable this in Settings > Subscription Settings > App Details

Added Element action is now included with guideActivity events

Added We now enforce a limit of collected attributes to 256 characters in length

Added We also now enforce a limit on the number of collected attributes to 64

Added New function pendo.getFeedbackSettings() will return configuration details on pages where Pendo Feedback is successfully installed, or an empty object if Feedback is not installed or incorrectly installed.

Fixed We have eliminated an infinite loop that was possible when calling onGuideAdvanced to skip from the first guide step to the last. We hate infinite loops.

Fixed There were conditions where the z-index set in supplemental styles was not being applied correctly.

Fixed We now prevent building blocks from rendering embed tags.

Fixed When the host application is using Shadow DOM, the announcement module had a bug that would allow new notification bubbles to appear multiple times. Squished!

Fixed We squished a bug that was allowing guides to show in multiple frames when the top frame is late to initialize Pendo. Not anymore!

Fixed We’ve reduced occurrences of undesired guide re-displays due to guide state shared across iframes.

Fixed We had an issue that would cause tooltips to display in a different position for every re-activation, and now it is fixed.

Android SDK

Added Ability to tag a page using the selected tab

Fixed In some devices, a tall guide could be obscured by the system-buttons

Fixed App elements using <color name=”colorAccent”> could change color due to the Pendo SDK 

Fixed The SDK could crash test suites while testing and using the org.ow2.asm dependency


Fixed Crash prevention improvements added to time-in-app calculation


Changed Replaced the Pendo Server’s certificate.
The existing Pendo certificate in your app will expire in June 2021, which will cause the SDK to stop collecting analytics and stop showing guides to your users. We recommend upgrading to this new SDK soon.
Why? Certificates expire every 2 years and must be replaced to keep your app secure.

Agent 2.69.3

Added You can now use annotateUrl to exclude query parameters, in addition to adding them.
