Robotic Desktop Automation (RDA) support for Pega 7 applications

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.2

You can use Robotic Desktop Automation (RDA) to integrate and unify processes that run on a user's desktop to streamline work and free your staff to focus on higher-value, customer-oriented tasks. You can use automations to retrieve information from applications that run on the desktop and send them to your Pega 7 application, and you can also use automations to send information from your application to applications that run on the desktop.

In an example Call Center application, you can use an automation to retrieve information from a legacy application running on a customer service representative's (CSR) desktop and display it in your application. You can also send information that users enter in your application (for example, an address change) to an automation to update the legacy application.

Extended support for Dutch, Italian, and Portuguese in text analytics

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.2

The number of supported languages in the sentiment analysis feature of the Pega 7 Platform has been increased through the addition of sentiment lexicons for Dutch, Italian, and Portuguese in Text Analyzer rules. By using these lexicons, you can now determine the emotional tone of text samples that are written in these languages.

For more information, see Text Analyzer.

Free Text Model rule type name changed to Text Analyzer

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.2

The name of the Free Text Model rule type has been changed to Text Analyzer. When you upgrade to Pega 7.2.2, the rule type name of all Free Text Model rules in your application will change automatically to Text Analyzer.

For more information, see Text Analyzer.

New graphical layout and shapes on the Data Flow form

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.2

The Data Flow form has an enhanced layout that improves interaction with objects on the canvas and provides better readability of flow shapes. The enhancements also include the addition of Branch and Data Transform shapes, and the Convert shape, which supports page unpacking. With these enhancements, you can build data flows more efficiently and capture business requirements more effectively.

For more information, see Improvements to the Data Flow rule form and New shapes on the Data Flow form.

New formats for styling report data grids

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.2

When you view a report, the data grid that is displayed is now styled by using either the List report format or the Summarized report format, depending on the report type. With this enhancement, you can display report data differently, and perhaps more effectively, than other grids in your portal. In the skin of your application, these new formats will be added and upgraded automatically by copying the Default format for the Trees & grids layout type, which was previously used to style reports.

For more information, see Modifying data grid formats for reports.

Monte Carlo data set

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.2

You can now create a Monte Carlo data set that is filled with varied and realistic-looking data. You can use this type of data set to generate random data records to test strategies and data flows.

For more information, see Creating a Monte Carlo data set record.

Support for creating PegaUnit test cases for strategy rules

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.2

You can create PegaUnit test cases for strategy rules in Designer Studio and in the decisioning user portals to compare the output of a strategy to the results that are returned by running the strategy. For example, you can verify that the number of propositions per customer is less than or equal to a certain value.

BIX filtering now works like report filtering

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.2

Filtering for Business Intelligence Exchange (BIX) extracts has been enhanced to work like report filtering, making it easier to use. Existing filters that use the Contains/DoesNotContain filter operation will be converted to use the Equals/NotEquals filter operation.

Export and import operations for data sets

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.2

You can move data between data sets and Pega 7 Platform instances more easily with export and import operations. You can use the export operation to prepare a backup copy of data outside the Pega 7 Platform. The import operation facilitates initialization of new Pega 7 Platform environments by providing a prepared set of data. You can export data from the data sets that support the Browse operation, and you can import data into the data sets that support the Save operation. Export and Import operations are not available for stream data sets such as Facebook, Stream, Twitter, and YouTube.

For more information, see Exporting data from a data set and Importing data into a data set.

Customizable New Application wizard

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.2

The redesigned New Application wizard streamlines the process of creating and configuring applications, and introduces customizable application templates. When you create an application from an application template, the template defines the wizard steps that gather the information that is needed to configure your new application based on the template. After you specify the required information in the wizard, the system creates an application with the required case types, data types, access groups, and operators. You can create multiple templates, depending on the needs of your business. Sample template types are provided.

For more information, see New Application wizard.
