Decision Management

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.4

This release contains a number of fixes that improve the configuration and execution of Batch decisions – specifically, a number of usability improvements and addresses some issues when creating strategies on IE8.  

  • Batch Decision functionality has been enhanced in the NBAM environment.
  • In NBAM, users can run the strategy execution batch based on the Seed list class instead of the customer class. 
  • Interaction data will now work even if Action or Organization  dimensions do not have values set.
  • Running a strategy which includes a Data Import of a structured page reference will work in batch mode.
  • Security was enhanced on the VBD Planner.
  • The Access of Role to Object rules have been enhanced to allow users to create new Dimension Operator records.
  • The NBAM Segment On Canvas will now fetch the SegMap data, even when the generated extended segment class has not been added to the Pages and Classes of the strategy.  The SegMap property will (if it exists) be added to a list of properties to fetch, even if the strategy indicates that it is not used.
  • When a strategy is defined on a customer class, users may now specify the list of required properties to fetch for the input definition.
  • When creating a new strategy, there is now a section to add a Strategy Results class like Business Issue or Group.

Reporting & Data

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.4

This release fixed many existing unlocalizable elements in 7.1 reporting interfaces (The Report Viewer, Report Editor, Chart Editor, and the Report Browser) and now they are fully localizable. Changes were made to make Listview, summaryview,  and report viewer display possible WCAG 2.0 level A and AA support.

  • Parameters may now be used in a sub-report join condition.
  • Report Definition localization has been enhanced.
  • Standalone ListViews with embedded SmartInfo have been improved to resize appropriately when the SmartInfo section is expanded.
  • The data section of a report will now display in all of the available space when a fixed header option is selected.
  • When localizing a listview with filters, tool tips are translated.

Decision Strategy Manager

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.3

Fixes were made that improve the configuration and execution of Batch Decisions. In particular,  the capability to use Structured Data has been enhanced. Some notable improvements have also been made to the UI of Visual Business Director.

  • The structured data input configuration will now work even though there is no data.
  • VBD has been enhanced to work with Version 7.1.
  • The structured data input configuration will now work with nested structures.
  • Association rules from Version 6.3 will now work with 7.1 structured data.

Reporting

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.3

This release had a focus on extending key capabilities to improve the functionality and ease of use of reporting features based on early adopter feedback.  A series of cosmetic changes and fixes are also included.

  • Multiple boxes may be checked on List view checkboxes
  • Dashboard Charts slider has been improved.
  • Summary View reports and charts have been enhanced.
  • Column properties can be added to a report in the Report Editor.
  • List view column widths can be set by Smart Info.
  • Listviews will display correctly for updated systems.
  • Improvements to the GuardRail Report.

Customize your report headers

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.5

You can customize the way that the header for all of an application's reports will be displayed by overriding the section pyReportEditorHeader. Save a copy of this section into the application's ruleset, then edit it to display the information, images, and layout that you desire. Once changes are saved, each of your application's reports will automatically use the updated header.

Advanced inline report filters

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.5

You can create a custom section and use it to display report filter controls at the top of the report, replacing the default display. The custom section can include basic controls (such as a drop-down menu or text entry field), and the controls can only provide values for the filter functions established in the Edit filters section of the Query tab for the Report Definition.

Convert data instances into decision parameter rules

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

The Convert groups wizard is available in the Hierarchy landing page when the list of your propositions include decision data records.

Click Convert groups at the top of the landing page to use the wizard and to convert data instances into decision parameter rules. This conversion is necessary to make the existing proposition data instances available for revision management.

Update to the Data Flows rule

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

It is now possible to collect statistics for each active data flow. These include the number of processed records, records that caused errors and last processed records per shape, as well as historical throughput measured for the entire data flow.

There are two new patterns in the Data Flow rule:

  • Event Strategy - define this pattern to use an event strategy in a data flow and to connect a data stream and static data sources to an event strategy.
  • Filter - specify filter conditions and apply them to each element of the input flow 

Apart from this, the Merge pattern was updated to execute the flow when there is no data on the secondary branches and the Strategy pattern allows you to specify the class where you want to store your strategy results.

New Dynamic System Setting for proposition management

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

A new Dynamic System Setting affects the process of creating new groups on the Proposition Management landing page.

When the PropositionManagement/isOnlyVersionedProposition parameter is set to true, users can only create the versioned propositions.

When the PropositionManagement/isOnlyVersionedProposition parameter is set to false, the Create Group dialog allows users to create either the versioned or unversioned propositions (the Create versioned proposition data check box and the Decision data rule section are both displayed).

New form of the HBase rule

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

There is a new form of the HBase rule. While you cannot create any new instances of the Pega 7.1.7 HBase rule, legacy instances in your application remain functional. You can still use the Pega 7.1.7 instances of the HBase rule, but you cannot make changes to them.

We'd prefer it if you saw us at our best.
