Data Designer lets you explore, develop, and manage the data your application uses

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

The Data Designer, new in Pega 7.1.7, is the lens through which you create and manage your application data types, and create properties within the selected data type. The Create Properties wizard is retired, and you now create and manage properties in the Definition tab of the data type you are viewing. You can track how your application uses your data types, and which case types use which data, on the Usage tab. Review the sources for your data types on the Sources tab, and create and manage local data storage for records on the Records tab.

For more information, see About Data Types.

Explore the relationships between data types with the Data Visualizer

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

The Data Visualizer, new in Pega 7.1.7, provides a graphical display of the relationships among your application's data types and class types. The map view can help clarify how your application's data works together. When you hover the mouse pointer over an entity in the display, the Data Visualizer highlights the entities with which that entity has a direct relationship.

For more information, see About the Data Visualizer.

Report Viewer provides simplified user experience

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

In the Report Viewer, improvements simplify the user experience when working with reports. Column headers display initial sort order and type, and you can hover over a column header to display and use its context menu, which includes options for ad-hoc sorting and filtering. Developers can specify various pagination modes and set an option to keep the header in view while users scroll through the report.

For more information, see Report Viewer.

Enhanced BIX file naming

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

To help clarify file names, BIX extract output files and manifest files can now contain parameters. Parameters can include the rule name, the extract's run time and date, and a unique run sequence number. Special characters such as spaces, hyphens, or number signs (#) in the output or manifest file name are converted to underscores. In addition, the pxExtractIdentifier and pxExtractDateTime columns have been added to the .csv output file.

For more information, see Extracting data with BIX and Extract rules - completing the File Specification tab.

Enhanced chart control improves displaying data as a chart

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

The chart source can be a report definition, a clipboard page, or a data page. You can customize basic and threshold colors, borders, line widths, labels, and other chart elements. A preview on the property panel instantly displays the effects on the chart of property changes you make.
