Improved data page performance

Valid from Pega Version 8.4

Data pages that are sourced from report definitions now support server-side paging. This functionality optimizes the performance and memory of data pages, making them more efficient at retrieving large lists of data. In addition to getting page indicators at the top of a grid, you can sort and filter columns in a grid in conjunction with paging. If you want the system to use server-side pagination, you can also enable pagination from the Data page rule form.

For more information, see Defining data page access.

Email supports Microsoft Graph

Valid from Pega Version 8.4

Email integration with Microsoft Office 365 now supports Microsoft Graph. By using Microsoft Graph, you can process inbound email more securely and avoid using less secure protocols, such as IMAP and POP3.

For more information, see Creating an email account.

Email listener enhancements for faster email processing

Valid from Pega Version 8.4

Enhanced email listeners now process more emails in less time. To increase throughput, you can configure email listeners to process several emails simultaneously, instead of one at a time.

For more information, see Creating an email listener.

Support for data page aggregation

Valid from Pega Version 8.4

You can now aggregate data from multiple sources for faster and easier implementations. With this feature, you can load data pages more easily without using an activity or data transform. 

For more information, see Creating a data page

Improved contracts for implementations

Valid from Pega Version 8.4

For more complete contracts, automations now support embedded pages, default values, and picklists. These enhancements provide a more robust model for inputs and outputs that is easier to update and maintain.

For more information, see Viewing automations.

Enhanced OpenAPI Specification generation

Valid from Pega Version 8.4

To better understand the purpose of your REST API, you can now generate a more complete OpenAPI Specification (OAS) from REST service rules in Pega Platform™. The system uses relevant records to build an accurate schema definition for page and page list outputs, and generate stronger schema type definitions for all inputs, outputs, and fields, such as array or boolean. You can also generate OAS by mapping values to JSON or Clipboard in the request, or mapping values from JSON or Clipboard in the response

For more information, see Service REST rules.

Enhancements to automations for defining Pega API contracts

Valid from Pega Version 8.4

With enhanced automations, you can now pass embedded pages, specify default values for optional input parameters, and define a set of values for inputs by using the picklist or enumerated field types. The new enhancements make your applications easier to define and maintain, and you can now provide callers of Pega APIs with a clear description of the API.

For more information, see Viewing automations.

Autopopulated properties support savable data pages

Valid from Pega Version 8.4

To more easily source data, you can now save an autopopulated property that references a savable data page. For properties that you autopopulate by copy, save plans now execute on the copy, instead of on the data page. These enhancements reduce implementation time and make the applications that you build more manageable.

Improved mobile app user experience

Valid from Pega Version 8.4

Pega Platform™ can now produce a better mobile experience through performance gains and flexible access settings. Apps now support quick-loading native worklists, smooth scrolling and swiping, and query-based search, which improve productivity for mobile users. In addition, you can make your app available to users without authentication, and enhance usability for products that do not require strict security controls.

For more information, see Securing mobile apps.

More efficient mobile development

Valid from Pega Version 8.4

The work environment for mobile app developers in Pega Platform™ is now more intuitive. Because every new out-of-the-box application now comes with a preconfigured mobile channel, you can start building mobile apps straight away. Create a mobile channel from scratch, and then customize it to include specific requirements for your new app.

The following updates enhance the process of building mobile apps:

  • Your application stores all mobile channels as rules. You can reuse these channels across all versions of your mobile apps for more convenient updates.
  • You can now configure contextual search from the mobile channel.
  • You can now create native mobile list pages for the app navigation directly from the mobile channel.
  • You can now add pages from web portals to a mobile app navigation pane, with full support for native mobile features, such as floating action buttons.
  • Mobile channels now support configuration through predefined templates, widgets, and actions.
  • You can now instantly preview your mobile channel configuration to see how the app displays on mobile devices.
  • Configuration of offline support for mobile apps is now available from a single, low-code page.
  • The preview section now offers a low-code pane, from which you can instantly start building a mobile app.
  • The mobile channel now supports adding custom iOS and Android modules.
  • Admin Studio now supports a mobile page, from which you can provide your own Mobile Build Server credentials and decide whether users need to provide authentication to download your mobile app.
