Support for building apps as Android App Bundles

Valid from Pega Version 8.5.5

As of August 2021, Google Play Store requires that you submit new apps in the Android App Bundle publishing format instead of the APK format. You can now build Pega mobile apps in the Android App Bundle format so that they comply with this new requirement.

For more information about generating installation packages for Pega mobile apps, see Generating installation packages. For more information about the Android App Bundle publishing format, see the Android for Developers documentation.

Data Designer lets you explore, develop, and manage the data your application uses

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

The Data Designer, new in Pega 7.1.7, is the lens through which you create and manage your application data types, and create properties within the selected data type. The Create Properties wizard is retired, and you now create and manage properties in the Definition tab of the data type you are viewing. You can track how your application uses your data types, and which case types use which data, on the Usage tab. Review the sources for your data types on the Sources tab, and create and manage local data storage for records on the Records tab.

For more information, see About Data Types.

Explore the relationships between data types with the Data Visualizer

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

The Data Visualizer, new in Pega 7.1.7, provides a graphical display of the relationships among your application's data types and class types. The map view can help clarify how your application's data works together. When you hover the mouse pointer over an entity in the display, the Data Visualizer highlights the entities with which that entity has a direct relationship.

For more information, see About the Data Visualizer.

New Cassandra connector rules allow applications to use data in BigData stores

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

The new Connect Cassandra rule type provides the interface to leverage data in Cassandra data stores. This means that your applications can use large data sets stored in Cassandra data stores. For more information on this connector type, see About Connect Cassandra rules.

New Hbase connector rules allow applications to use data in BigData stores

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

The new Connect HBase rule type provides the interface to leverage data in HBase data stores. This means that your applications can use large data sets stored in HBase data stores. For more information on this new rule type, see About Connect HBase rules.

Your application can be a SAML service provider

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

You can quickly establish your application as a SAML service provider, with a web SSO profile, SOAP binding, and HTTP redirect binding to support single logout binding. The service is interoperable with Ping Identity, Tivoli Federated Identity Manager, and many other leading identity service providers (ISPs).

Offline mobile apps require Dynamic Container to use frameless Single Document mode

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

You can add a Dynamic Container (DC) directly into a Dynamic Layout cell. When creating a custom mobile app with offline capability, you must use the frameless Single Document mode of DC.

Note that mobile offline capability does not support using a framed Single Document mode.

Cannot create new data tables after update

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

Data tables have been replaced by a new local data storage format. You can upgrade old-style data tables to use the new local data storage format, but the new format is not compatible with earlier versions of Pega 7 in which data tables could be created.

You can still edit legacy data tables by using the old data table functionality. However, to create new data tables, you must use the Data Explorer and Data Designer.

Service responses in HTTP and REST connectors are no longer modified

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

The Pega 7.1.8 release correctly leaves form service responses for HTTP and REST connectors unmodified. Upgrade to this release if you experience a problem in Pega 7.1.7 where service responses for HTTP and REST connectors are modified when the declared type in the Content-Type header is application/x-www-form-urlencoded. In this case, the responses were modified to a base 64 representation of the bytes in the string. In Pega 7.1.8, responses of type application/x-www-form-urlencoded are mapped to the property designated on the Connector record.

Internet Application Composer (IAC) renamed to Pega Web Mashup

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.9

The name of Internet Application Composer (IAC) has changed to Pega Web Mashup.
