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.

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.

Screenshot generation runs on local client

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

If you generate screenshots to include in your application document, this process still runs on your local client. Additionally, you are still required to use Internet Explorer to use this feature.

Warning message when opening server-generated documents

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

Depending on your system configuration, the following warning message might be displayed when you open a document that was generated on the server.

If you click No, certain content (for example, Table of Contents) is not populated in the document. Instead, click Yes and save the document.

The warning message that displays

Decision Data Store data sets can be used only on DNodes

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

Data flows that contain Decision Data Store data sets as the primary or secondary source must be created and executed only on DNodes.

Data flows are not restarted automatically after application server restart

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

When you restart the application server or the Pega 7 server, you stop the execution of your data flows. The interrupted batch and real-time runs are marked as Failed

Recommendation:

  • Go to the Designer StudioDecisioning > Decisions > Data Flows > Batch processing tab and start the failed batch runs.
  • Go to the Designer StudioDecisioning > Decisions > Data Flows > Real-time processing tab and activate the failed real-time runs.

 

Value list and value group properties are not supported inside data flows

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

Value list and value group properties are not supported inside data flows, and you need to instead use other property types.

See the Pega 7 developer help to check all available property types.

Data flow preview size is fixed to 10

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

The Preview option for each shape in data flows returns the first 10 records. This value is fixed and currently cannot be changed.

Data Flow transformation shapes cannot be used in combination with the Compose or Merge shapes

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

When you reference another data flow from a data flow that contains the Compose or Merge shape, the referenced data flow cannot contain transformation shapes (EventStrategy, Decision strategy, Convert).

Data flow validation does not currently prevent you from designing a data flow that goes against this design pattern. Make sure that your data flows follow this design pattern by checking the referenced and referencing data flows.

 

Data flow destination is resolved at assembly time

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

Data flow execution always uses the design-time destination data sets or destination data flows, regardless of the input records at run time.

Example:

You create a data flow and set the destination to a specific data set. In the data flow, you use a strategy that produces some results. Regardless of these results, the execution of your data flow always uses the destination data set that you specified when you designed the data flow.    

The same applies when you set the destination to a data flow.
