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.

Limited access for end user portals

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.1

The following portals are only accessible from supported versions of Internet Explorer in “quirks” mode:

  • WorkUser
  • WorkManager

Nesting dynamic containers not supported

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.1

Do not include a section containing a dynamic container inside of another dynamic container. This configuration may cause performance issues resulting in unexpected behavior at runtime, and is not supported.

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.

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.

Rollback functionality is limited to latest revision

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

The rollback functionality in DSM Revision Manager allows customers to roll back the import of the latest revision to their DSM application. Only one rollback is allowed; after a rollback, the rollback option is disabled until the next revision is imported. If importing two (or more) revisions at once then attempting a rollback, the system only rolls back one revision.

Example: a user has a base DSM application. They import Revision 1, and then import Revision 2. Next, they try to roll back both revisions. The system reverts to the Revision 1 version of the application, and the customer cannot revert all the way back to the base application.

System Management Application displaying listeners that do not require any action

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

After installing or upgrading to Pega 7.1.7, there is an additional available listener (Data-Decision-DNode-Service:Default) that does not require any action. This listener can be safely ignored and you should not use the System Management Application to manage any of its operations or state.

  • The Data-Decision-DNode-Service:Default listener is always running on every PRPC node.
  • The state of this listener is internally managed by PRPC. Starting or stopping it through SMA does not have any effect on its state.

Cannot create new data tables after update

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

Data tables have been replaced by a new local data storage format. You can upgrade old-style data tables to use the new local data storage format, but the new format is not compatible with earlier versions of Pega 7 in which data tables could be created.

You can still edit legacy data tables by using the old data table functionality. However, to create new data tables, you must use the Data Explorer and Data Designer.
