Enabling security policies now requires current password

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.3

As part of Pega’s initiative to protect against malicious attacks, the change password dialog has been enhanced.  When Security Policies have been enabled for your system, new users or those with expired passwords will now be prompted for both their existing password as well as their desired new password.

For more details, review the Designer Studio > System > Settings > Security Policies landing page.

Pega 7 Express is available on-premises

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.9

You can now experience Pega 7 Express by switching your enterprise application from Designer Studio to express mode. By default, users with access to the Developer portal can switch between these two development environments. You can also create an express application to work in express mode exclusively.

Trial versions of Pega 7 Express continue to be available on the cloud. To view the documentation for both the cloud and on-premises environments, see Getting started with Pega 7 Express.

Access to Pega 7 Express from within Designer Studio is not supported on mobile devices.

Use multiple built-on applications to enhance ruleset reuse

Valid from Pega Version 7.2

Applications can now have multiple built-on applications, allowing rules to be reused as a part of a built-on application at run time while being developed independently at design time.

Previously, applications built in Pega 7.1 and earlier versions were assembled in a single linear application stack--one application built on top of another application, and so on. Attempting to reuse rulesets and frameworks across applications resulted in having to splice applications together, creating challenges when attempting to support the use of these custom created applications. Starting in Pega 7.2, applications are built on to other applications by using a hierarchical tree structure, and the Pega 7 Platform automatically converts this tree into a linear application stack.

For more information, see Using multiple built-on applications and the Ruleset behavior at design time section in Application stack hierarchy for multiple built-on applications.

Support for delegating map values, correspondence rules, and circumstances

Valid from Pega Version 7.2

You can now delegate map values and correspondence rules from the Actions > Delegate menu. In addition, you can delegate circumstanced types of the following supported rules and data types:

  • Map values
  • Correspondence rules
  • Paragraphs
  • Decision tables
  • Data types

Offline support for mobile applications

Valid from Pega Version 7.2

You can work on assignments and create cases while your mobile device is offline. By enabling offline support for a case type, you can move cases closer to resolution while your application is disconnected from the network.

For more information, see Enabling offline for support for a case type.

Relevant records to define reusable assets

Valid from Pega Version 7.2

Relevant records describe the collection of rules that refine the behavior, presentation, and definition of a case or data type. They are commonly used to designate records from an inherited class as important or reusable in a child class.

Use relevant records to define information displayed in certain Pega 7 Platform application screens and fields. The Pega 7 Platform provides a number of items marked as relevant records, and you can further manage relevant records for your own case and data types.

For more information, see Relevant records.

Current parameter page can now be passed into activities, collections, and data transforms

Valid from Pega Version 7.2

In collection rules, you can now pass the current parameter page into an activity, data transform, or another collection when you call the activity, data transform, or collection from either a primary or a response action instead of setting up parameters before you call one of these types of rules. The Pass current parameter page check box is now supported on the Collection rule form.

For more information, see Rules and methods supported by a collection.

Team management

Valid from Pega Version 7.2

As a case manager or manager of a team, you can manage all your teams and direct reports on the Team management landing page. You can create teams or delete existing ones, as well as update team membership and work queues assigned to the team. You can also update and manage workload, time off, and skills information for individual team members. Social collaboration through Pulse is also available for both teams and individual users.

For more information, see Managing team information and work queues.

Quickly make a calculation based on a repeating field group

Valid from Pega Version 7.2

After you add a calculated (read-only) field to a form, you can create simple calculations that reference numeric fields within repeating groups. The expression can use common functions (Sum of, Average of, Minimum of, or Maximum of) or can be a custom expression.

For more information, see Calculations based on a repeating field group.

New Pulse gadget for users

Valid from Pega Version 7.2

You can use Pulse to communicate and collaborate with other users. For example, in Pulse you can post messages, share files, search for content, and view an activity feed on your dashboard that aggregates your Pulse posts.

For more information, see Pulse for social collaboration.
