General settings

Suggest edit Updated on January 26, 2021

Based on your organization's business needs and the use of features, complete the general settings on the Product Composer System Configuration page early in the project so that the corresponding features work properly.

Other configurations are included with the specified features. For more information, see Entity configuration.

Changing work class names

After you build your application, change the names of the work classes to match the names that were created after you ran the New Application wizard.

Before you begin: Ensure that you have already built your application. For additional information, see Creating the implementation application.
  1. In the header of Dev Studio, click ConfigureProduct composer system Configuration.
  2. On the Application settings tab, in the Work classes section, complete settings for your application and change the names of the work classes to match the names that were created after you ran the New Application wizard.
  3. Click Actions > Save as system configuration.
    You can also click Save as personal configuration to save the settings as a personal configuration for testing.

Configuring settings for entity versioning

When entities such as a benefit or plan undergo changes in their life cycle, you can represent the changes to an entity in time blocks or versions.

Workflows for these entities generally progress at different times in discrete phases. During a phase, you might need to allocate a different set of data or enforce different business rules.
  1. In the header of Dev Studio, click ConfigureProduct composer systemConfiguration.
  2. On the Application settings tab, in the Stage actions allowed section, based on your needs, select or clear the check boxes.
    For additional information on versioning, see Versioning.
  3. Click Actions > Save as system configuration.
    You can also click Save as personal configuration to save the settings as a personal configuration for testing.

Configuring search properties for pending entities

In addition to the search properties that you previously configured for approved entities in Pega Product Composer for Healthcare, you can set additional properties to search for entities that are pending approval.

For example, you might add the .pyStatusWork property to the pending entity search so that when you search, you can view a list of entities such as benefits or products that are pending approval.

After you complete this task, you can view the new properties for entities that are pending approval in the Product Development portal in the Advanced search section of the Pending entities search tab of a specified entity.

  1. In the header of Dev Studio, click ConfigureProduct composer systemConfiguration.
  2. Click the Search configuration settings tab.
  3. Expand the Pending entities search section at the bottom of the page.
  4. Click the Add a row icon.
    1. In the Property column, select a property that you want to display in the search for pending entities.
    2. In the Label column, click to display the label.
  5. Click Save as system configuration.

Configuring properties for an enhanced search

With the advanced search configuration in Pega Product Composer for Healthcare, you can search by using any of the properties within the hierarchy and are no longer limited to searching by using high-level, exposed properties. For example, you can search for a list of plans that have a specific copay or coinsurance value.

Before you begin: Determine which parameters that you want to add or remove for each entity. In the Product Development portal, in the navigation pane, under Reusable Entities, click each entity and examine the search parameters that appear.
  1. In the header of Dev Studio, click ConfigureProduct composer systemConfiguration.
  2. Click the Search configuration settings tab.
  3. Optional: In the specified entity section, remove a search parameter by clicking the Delete this row icon to the right of the specified property.
  4. Optional: Add a search parameter by clicking the Add a row icon at the bottom of the entity section and performing the following steps:
    1. In the Property field, select a property from the list that corresponds to the search parameter that you want to display.
    2. In the Label field, enter text for the new search parameter.
    3. Select the Multiple Search check box to search for more than one of the specified parameters.
      For example: To search for plans with multiple benefits, in the Plan search fields section of the configuration page, add the property corresponding to the benefit name and select the Multiple Search check box. Now, when you search for plans, you can add multiple benefits such as Ambulance and Acupuncture in the plan search.
    4. Select the Advanced Search check box to have this search parameter appear only in the Advanced search section of the entity search page.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for each entity that you are modifying.
  6. When you finalize your search parameters, click Actions Save as system configuration.
