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.

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.

Ability to include all properties in search results

Valid from Pega Version 7.4

You can now include all properties in a class in search results so that they can be used in report filtering. When the Enable search results for all properties option is selected on the Custom Search Properties rule form, all top level and embedded page scalar properties for the class are indexed and returned in search results, and all embedded page list, page group, value list, and value group properties for the class are indexed but not returned in search results. Selecting this option might affect performance.

In addition, by default, properties defined in the Data-Tag-RelevantRecord instance for a class are indexed and returned in search results and do not need to be explicitly configured.

You must reindex search after selecting or clearing Enable search results for all properties and after changing the properties that are defined in the Data-Tag-RelevantRecord instance.

For more information, see Specifying custom search properties.

Compact style sheet for creating PDF files

Valid from Pega Version 7.4

You can now use a compact style sheet when you create PDF files by using the Create PDF smart shape in a case type or when you use the HTMLtoPDF activity. This style sheet overrides the style sheet that is used by the harness skin and correctly renders certain elements such as headings and inline grid tables. It also renders PDF files more quickly.

For more information, see Creating PDF files by using a compact style sheet and PDF file rendering scenarios.

Data pages can source information from a robotic process automation

Valid from Pega Version 7.4

When you use robotic process automation (RPA), you can now configure data pages to source information from robotic automations so that you can connect your Pega® Platform application to legacy applications in your enterprise. By using automations to retrieve data and save it to a data page, you can use data virtualization to encapsulate your Pega Platform data model from the physical interface of a legacy system against which the automation is running.

For more information, see Obtaining information from robotic automations.

Case-insensitive filtering in reports

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

Filtering in reports is now case-insensitive, improving the reporting and searching experience. You can turn off case-insensitive filtering, for example, by using an activity. You might want to do this if your index is too big or if the length of time it takes for indexing impacts performance.

For more information on report filtering, see Editing filter conditions.

More display options for charts

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

Display properties have been expanded for charts that you add to a report harness or section. In addition to setting general display properties, you can set visibility and color options, control hover highlight behavior for data points and legends, and define more presentation options for grids and tooltips. The additional presentation options enhance your chart design and provide a way for you to effectively highlight important data.

For more information about configuring charts, see Harness and section forms - Adding a chart.

Better navigation between pages

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

The navigation between landing pages and configuration pages in App Studio has changed so that only one tab at a time is displayed in the work area. This change eliminates the maximum tab limit message. Navigate to previous pages by clicking the back arrow at the top of the work area or click the Back to preview button in the workspace header to open a page in the selected device preview.

Progress gauge and double donut charts

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

To better visualize data, use the new progress gauge chart and double donut pie charts. The progress gauge chart measures the progress made against a goal. The double donut pie chart shows two layers of data in a single chart. The progress gauge chart can be included in reports and dashboard widgets. The double donut chart can be added to dashboard widgets.

For more information about including charts in reports, see Harness and section forms - Adding a chart.
