Operator presence record tracks disconnected status of operators

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

The state attribute in the operator presence record now tracks the operator connection status of DISCONNECTED, in addition to tracking the operator connection status of ACTIVE, AWAY, or OFFLINE. Operators are disconnected if their browser crashes, if they close a browser session without logging out of the system, or if the network connection is down. The DISCONNECTED status helps prevent work from being routed to operators who are not online or not available.

When the operator restores the browser session or the network connection is restored, the Pega® Platform updates the operator connection status to ACTIVE.

For more information, see Tracking the online presence of operators.

Designer Studio keyboard navigation

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

Keyboard navigation adds speed and convenience to Designer Studio. To open the command palette and search within or select from a list of Designer Studio menu options, press Ctrl+Shift+P (Command+Shift+P on a Mac). For more information, see Navigate Designer Studio menus with the keyboard.

Enhanced autocomplete control with combo box functionality

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

You can now add combo box functionality to an autocomplete control. You enable this functionality on the Presentation tab of the control. In the combo box, search results that match the search criteria are displayed in a list that you can scroll through by clicking the down arrow.

For more information about how to configure an autocomplete control as a combo box, see Autocomplete Properties — Presentation tab.

Improved capability to attach content in offline-enabled applications

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

The feature for attaching content in applications while in offline mode has been enhanced. A list of attached content is displayed in the application while in offline mode. You can view or delete attachments if the application has not yet been synchronized with the server. You also can change the maximum size of a file that you can attach while working in offline mode. This option gives you the flexibility to select the right size of attachment for a specific application for performance, memory limitation, or security reasons.

For more information, see Attach content support in offline mode.

Fingerprint authentication in Pega Mobile Client

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

The authentication feature in Pega Mobile Client has been extended to support user credentials that are secured by a fingerprint reader. The FingerprintAuthenticator object and its methods replace the TouchID API. A compatibility layer has been created to support custom mobile apps that use the deprecated API. This functionality is available on iOS and selected Android devices.

For more information, see Authentication API.

Enhancement to the error and warning handling JavaScript API

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

During offline post processing of a flow in an application, you can now use the ClientCache JavaScript API to handle informational and warning messages in addition to error messages. Several ClientCache API JavaScript functions have been updated for this purpose. Informational, warning, and error messages are displayed when you submit a form, but only error messages prevent you from advancing the case.

For more information, refer to Error and warning handling API in offline mode.

New customization options for paused custom mobile apps on Android

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

You can now customize the presentation of a paused custom mobile app for Android. You can upload a custom status bar icon and customize the title and message that are displayed in the device's notification area. Also, you can use a new optional parameter of the startKeepAlive method of the Pega Mobile Client's Container API as an alternative way of setting the notification title.

For more information, see Customizing the paused Android app notification.

Consistent authoring experience for sections

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

Section references inside a dynamic layout have the same configuration options as a top-level section within a section (section include). Section references reduce the need for included sections, reduce the size of the document object model (DOM), and provide a more consistent authoring experience. You can specify a container format, set view and update privileges, and defer content load for sections within or outside of a dynamic layout. For more information see Harness and Section forms - Adding a section.

Refer to mixin settings in override CSS

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

You can refer to mixin settings inside an override CSS, which makes it easier to maintain and restyle your application. Properties for typography, border, background, and combination mixins can be referenced in an override CSS. For more information see Mixins in an override CSS.

Tour IDs and Test IDs in UI controls

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

Many UI controls now support the Test ID and Tour ID fields in the General tab of the layout properties. The Test ID setting generates a data-test-id attribute to provide a fixed reference to a UI control for automated testing. You can use Tour IDs to create a guided tour of your user interface for users. For more information, see Test ID and Tour ID for unique identification of UI elements.

Test IDs and Tour IDs have been extended to the following UI controls.

Both Test IDs and Tour IDs are supported in the following types of controls:

  • Autocomplete
