Cannot copy final section rules in UI Kit ruleset

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.6

You cannot copy section rules in the UI Kit ruleset (UI-Kit-71) that start with pz or px (final rules in the base PRPC rulesets).

Instead, to customize these rules, use the Copy/Merge Ruleset tool, available at Designer Studio >System > Tools > Refactor Rulesets, to copy all rules from the UI Kit into your application ruleset. You can then check the section rules in and out.

User interface distortions in the Decision Manager portal

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.6

By default, the New Application wizard in Pega 7.1.6 configures new applications to include UI-Kit-7 in the list of application rulesets. This ruleset causes user interface distortions in the Decision Manager portal. Both applications created in previous maintenance level updates and applications created in Pega 7.1.6 that do not include the UI-Kit-7 dependency are not impacted by this known issue.

Workaround:

  1. Open the application record.
  2. In Application Rulesets, remove UI-Kit-7.
  3. Save the application record.

User interface distortions in the Predictive Analytics Director portal

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.6

By default, the New Application wizard configures new applications to include UI-Kit-7 in the list of application rulesets. This ruleset causes user interface distortions in the Predictive Analytics Director portal. Applications created in maintenance level updates previous to Pega 7.1.6, and applications that do not include the UI-Kit-7 dependency, are not impacted by this known issue.

Workaround:

  1. Open the application record.
  2. In Application Rulesets, remove UI-Kit-7.
  3. Save the application record.

Microsof Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) may display a script error when clicking a Help button

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.6

A script error may be displayed when clicking a Help button when script error notification is turned on in the browser. As a work around, uncheck the Display a notification about every script error option in the Advanced tab of the Options dialog box in Microsoft Internet Explorer 9.

No support for Android versions earlier than 4.4 on mobile devices

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

Pega® Platform dynamic layouts by default now use Flexbox-based rendering. As a result, mobile devices running on Android versions earlier than 4.4 are not supported in Pega Platform. Such devices cannot render correctly with Flexbox because the Pega Mobile Client includes the default stock browser on the Android operating system.

Package caching is not supported in offline-enabled applications built with the UI Kit 7 (09-01-01) portal

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

When you create an offline-enabled application in Pega® Platform, by default, it uses a portal with the UI Kit 7 (09-01-01) ruleset. In such a case, the package caching functionality cannot be used. You must either disable caching on the Advanced tab of the Access Group rule form, in the Offline Configuration section, or use an adaptive design instead of rendering different elements for different devices with the UI Kit 7 (09-01-01) ruleset.

For more information, see Access Group form - Completing the Advanced tab.

Unable to create text analytics models when Java 2 Security is enabled

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

Security exceptions that prevent you from creating text analytics models are caused by the Java 2 Security feature that is enabled at the JVM level. This feature denies access to the text analytics resources that are required for text parsing functions.

Creating a text analytics model results in a failure because of a number of security-related exceptions, for example:

java.security.AccessControlException: Access denied ("java.lang.RuntimePermission""createSecurityManager")

The suggested approach for avoiding this problem is to use the text analytics models that are provided by default, for example, pySentimentModels, pyTelecomTaxonomy, and so on.

For more information, see Text Analyzer.

No video controllers displayed on Android 4.3 and earlier versions

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

When you preview a video clip within Pega® Mobile Client on a mobile device that runs Android 4.3 or earlier versions, video controllers are not displayed in full-screen mode.

The worklist appears to be empty when you go back from an opened case in an offline-enabled mobile application

Valid from Pega Version 7.4

In a Pega® Platform offline-enabled application, when you go back to the worklist from an opened case, the worklist appears to be empty even though it contains cases. This issue will be fixed in the next release of Pega Platform. Only portals that use the key principles and design of the pyCaseWorker portal are supported in offline-enabled applications.

For more information, see Offline mobility guidelines.

Browser unresponsive when logging in to Designer Studio

Valid from Pega Version 7.4

The What's new in 7.4 widget on the Designer Studio home page uses WebGL to render its background animation. If your browser is running on a virtual machine without hardware acceleration, your browser might become unresponsive because of this widget. Click the Hide this until next release button to remove the widget. At your next login, the widget will not be displayed.
