Use "alternate database" as report source

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.6

You can opt to use the the "alternate database" identified in the Reports Database field of the Data-Admin-DB-Table instance that supports the Applies To class of a report as the source for the report. This reduces the load on the database that serves your application when you run the report.

Attachment support for requirements

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.6

Requirements now support attachments. You can add attachments from the Designer Studio > Application > Profile > Requirements landing page, the Add/Edit Requirement modal, or the requirement rule form.

Enhanced document generation

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.6

The following usability improvements have been made to documents generated by the Application Document Wizard:

  • Stages and Processes now appear for case types that use Case Lifecycle Management. This diagram includes hyperlinks to corresponding sections in the document and is scoped to top-level processes only.
  • All flows (excluding pyStartCase) referenced by a case type now appear in documents. This removes previous constraints on non-starting, draft, and checked out flows.
  • Entity Relationship Diagrams (ERDs) are now embedded in documents as Visio objects.
  • Sections without content are omitted from the generated document.
  • Screenshots are labeled.
  • Requirement text (Long Description) is included in the Requirements Matrix section.
  • Linked requirements appear in context beneath their associated specification.
  • Acceptance Criteria appears in context beneath the associated specification, report, or correspondence item.

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.

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.

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.

New PEGA0084 alert - Search node count

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.2

The PEGA0084 alert is generated when the number of available index host nodes does not meet the quorum ((replicas/2) + 1) required for index writes to succeed. This alert can occur when some of the index nodes go down, causing the number of available index host nodes to be less than the quorum. For more information, see PEGA0084 - Search node count.

Style charts in the application skin

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.2

You can now style charts in your application skin by selecting Charts in the Controls section and setting a theme. When you style charts by using a theme, charts that are generated for report definition reports and the autogenerated chart control are styled consistently, and you do not need to style charts individually. In addition, you can preview chart themes in the Skin form to see how different charts look without launching an application.

For more information, see Styling charts in the application skin.
