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.

Source field not displaying in data transform

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.4

On the Data Transform rule form when using the Update Page action, if the Relation value is updated to “with values from”, the Source field will not be displayed.

(Note that for existing data transforms where the Source field has already been completed, this situation should not occur.)

Workaround

  1. Below is a data transform that has been configured to use Update Page.

  2. If a user were to choose an alternate source by updating the ‘with values from’ Relation value, they would not be prompted to provide a page name in the Source field.

  3. At this point, to be able to enter the Source page value, the user has to save the rule, which results in an error because the source page value is blank. This causes the field to appear.

  4. Once the field has appeared, the Source page value can be provided, and the form can be saved successfully.

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.

DCO and PMF integration is unavailable

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.5

DCO and PMF integration functionality is not available in this release. Related project management controls have been removed from the following:

  • System Settings landing page (Designer Studio > System > Settings > Project Management)
  • Application Profile landing page (Designer Studio > Application > Profile > Specifications)
  • Add/Edit Specification dialog

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.

User interface distortions in the Decision Manager portal

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.6

By default, the New Application wizard in Pega 7.1.6 configures new applications to include UI-Kit-7 in the list of application rulesets. This ruleset causes user interface distortions in the Decision Manager portal. Both applications created in previous maintenance level updates and applications created in Pega 7.1.6 that do not include the UI-Kit-7 dependency are not impacted by this known issue.

Workaround:

  1. Open the application record.
  2. In Application Rulesets, remove UI-Kit-7.
  3. Save the application record.

ShowWarningOnForm is no longer processed

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

Rule forms now display all warnings, independent of category or type. The standard decision tree Embed-Warning.ShowWarningOnForm is no longer used to determine which warnings are visible.

You can safely remove any specialized versions of this rule in your application.

List view and summary view reports might not display in HTML5-compliant browsers

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

List view and summary view reports use framesets to provide a view of drill-down reports. HTML5 does not support framesets, so these reports might not display well, or at all, in versions of browsers that are compliant with HTML5.

To prevent display issues, re-create the custom list view and summary view reports that you need as report definition reports. Standard management reports are already available as report definition reports.

As of Pega 7.2, list view and summary view rules are deprecated. For more information, see Discontinued support for list view and summary view rules.

User interface distortions in the Predictive Analytics Director portal

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.6

By default, the New Application wizard configures new applications to include UI-Kit-7 in the list of application rulesets. This ruleset causes user interface distortions in the Predictive Analytics Director portal. Applications created in maintenance level updates previous to Pega 7.1.6, and applications that do not include the UI-Kit-7 dependency, are not impacted by this known issue.

Workaround:

  1. Open the application record.
  2. In Application Rulesets, remove UI-Kit-7.
  3. Save the application record.

Noticeable differences between work objects created in the Decision Manager portal when compared to Designer Studio

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

In the Decision Manager portal, you create work objects by running flows in the enterprise application that serves as the base application for the application overlay. If the enterprise application does not include the UI-Kit-7 in its application rulesets, work objects can display differently in the Decision Manager portal when compared to Designer Studio because an application overlay is always configured to include the UI-Kit-7 ruleset.

Recommendation:

  1. Add the UI-Kit-7 ruleset dependency to the enterprise application.
  2. Redesign the user interface to comply with the UI-Kit-7 ruleset.
