Change logic does not work in Report Editor

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.2

The Report Editor​ change logic button does not work. As a workaround, use the rule form to change the logic.

Organization Setup superseded by New Application Wizard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:

Create new applications quickly and easily with Application Express

Automated Unit Testing is unavailable

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.1

Automated Unit Testing (AUT) is unavailable in 7.1.1 - 7.1.5.

Starting in 7.1.6, users can access AUT features from supported browser versions of IE.

Privilege required for Recent Explorer

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.1

Users with custom roles defined must add the pxUpdateRecents privilege to see work in the Recent Items Explorer. 

Use standard Developer portal

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.1

Customized versions of the Developer portal rely on legacy components and are not supported.

To avoid backwards compatibility issues, update your access group to point to the standard Developer portal prior to upgrade.

Top-level (named) pages may no longer be classless

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.1

Newly created top-level (named) pages may no longer be classless or have a blank pxObjClass property. This change can affect applications upgrading from versions prior to Pega 7 to the latest version, especially when:

  • Application logic relies on a blank value in the pxObjClass property.
  • An activity assumes a new top-level page is classless and explicitly sets pxObjClass in a Property-Set step.
  • A data transform assumes a new top-level page is classless and explicitly sets pxObjClass using a Set action.

To avoid application failures, remove or update any logic that expects a blank pxObjClass. Where possible, use the new engine API that finds a page by both name and class:

findPageWithException(PageName, ClassName);

Activities and data transforms continue to create a top-level page when one does not exist. The class name is now derived from the Pages and Classes tab.

Designer Studio

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.3

Numerous usability improvements were made for this release. A group of cosmetic, functional, and performance enhancements were also included.

  • Treegrid controls work more quickly in IE9 and IE10.
  • On application ruleforms, the 5.4 "Place Properties on Thread Page" checkbox will work in 7.1.
  • Message error handling has been improved.
  • Log messages have been cleaned up.
  • Connectors may now be used in Data Pages.
  • Move Rules wizard has been enhanced to work in Version 7.1.

DCO

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.3

In this release, specification support in Case Designer was improved.  Also, improvements and fixes were made to the New Application Wizard.

  • Changes were made to support a split schema environment
  • Shared and Component RuleSets can be copied.
  • Can edit in Word from either Grids or Lists.
  • More than 50 case types are now supported for an application.

Reporting

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.3

This release had a focus on extending key capabilities to improve the functionality and ease of use of reporting features based on early adopter feedback.  A series of cosmetic changes and fixes are also included.

  • Multiple boxes may be checked on List view checkboxes
  • Dashboard Charts slider has been improved.
  • Summary View reports and charts have been enhanced.
  • Column properties can be added to a report in the Report Editor.
  • List view column widths can be set by Smart Info.
  • Listviews will display correctly for updated systems.
  • Improvements to the GuardRail Report.

IE8 limits expansion features

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.1

Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) does not support CSS media queries, which are used by re-expansion features in the Designer Studio. IE8 users with low screen resolution (800 x 600) and a small window size may find that the explorer area in the Designer Studio collapses but cannot re-expand. 

As a work around, access the Designer Studio from another supported browser version and use the recommended, minimum screen resolution width of 1280 pixels.

We'd prefer it if you saw us at our best.
