Organization Setup superseded by New Application Wizard

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.3

The Organization Setup Wizard has been retired in PRPC 7.1.3.  This feature was previously launched from the Designer Studio > Org & Security > Organization > Organization Setup menu. Users are encouraged to run the New Application Wizard (also known as Application Express) instead:

This tool quickly generates an application along with all of the artifacts previously offered by the Organization Setup Wizard. This includes, but is not limited to, the class hierarchy, application rule, organization/division/unit rules, and all relevant data instances.

See the following PDN article for more details on the New Application Wizard:

Customize your report headers

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.5

You can customize the way that the header for all of an application's reports will be displayed by overriding the section pyReportEditorHeader. Save a copy of this section into the application's ruleset, then edit it to display the information, images, and layout that you desire. Once changes are saved, each of your application's reports will automatically use the updated header.

Guardrails compliance score

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.5

The Application Guardrails landing page has been enhanced to help you build more guardrail-compliant applications. Increase transparency and accountability on your projects by responding to the following compliance score metrics:

  • A weighted compliance score (0-100) based on warnings, severity, and justification
  • A percentage of compliant rules in your application
  • Total number of rules in your application
  • Total number of rules in your application with warnings (justified and unjustified)

Additional metrics include alert and interaction count trends over the last four weeks.

For more information, see Guardrails compliance score.

Advanced inline report filters

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.5

You can create a custom section and use it to display report filter controls at the top of the report, replacing the default display. The custom section can include basic controls (such as a drop-down menu or text entry field), and the controls can only provide values for the filter functions established in the Edit filters section of the Query tab for the Report Definition.

Directed inheritance view in Application Explorer

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.5

You can now specify which inheritance model is used to populate classes in the Application Explorer. From the top level menu, use the “Explorer Inheritance” option to choose between:

  • Pattern: only display class names whose prefix matches the root node class name.
  • Directed: first display classes that explicitly name the root node as the parent class; then display classes with pattern inheritance.

By default, the Application Explorer loads using Pattern inheritance. 

Save Application Explorer filter selections

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.5

Application scoping control selections made in the Application Explorer are now persisted between sessions. These preferences are stored in an operator record on an access group level. If you delete (and later re-add) an access group on your operator form, the application scoping control defaults to all layers selected:
