Add subspaces within spaces

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

You can now create subspaces within spaces. By adding a subspace, you can collaborate on a subtopic that is related to the topic of the parent space. For example, you can create an Annual Day subspace within the Events space.

For more information, see Creating a subspace.

PATCH support for REST integrations

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

REST connectors and REST services now include support for integrating with REST APIs that require using the PATCH method. REST integrations that support the PATCH method allow you to make partial updates to individual resources while retaining data that does not require an update. With PATCH support, you no longer need to write complex custom code to integrate with services that require using the PATCH method.

For more information about REST integrations, see Connect REST form - Completing the Methods tab.

Configure REST connectors for standard-compliant endpoints

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

REST connectors now support all standards-compliant endpoint URLs, regardless of how those URLs use query parameters.

This URL support allows you to do the following actions:

  • Include repeated query string parameters in a URL.
  • Omit a query string parameter if the value of the parameter is empty when you send a request.
  • Apply appropriate encoding for different URL components.

For more information about REST connectors, see Connect REST form.

Elasticsearch reports support string comparison operators

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

To improve performance, reports that use string comparison operators in filters can now run queries against Elasticsearch instead of querying the database. The following operators are now supported for Elasticsearch queries.

  • Starts with, Ends with, Does not start with, and Does not end with
  • Contains and Does not contain
  • Greater than, Less than, Greater than or equal, and Less than or equal

In cases where a query cannot be run against Elasticsearch, the query is run against the database, for example, if the query includes a join. To determine if a query was run against Elasticsearch, use the Tracer and enable the Query resolution event type. For more information, see Tracer event types to trace.

Improve clipboard performance for Service REST

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

Improve clipboard performance in Service REST processing by using the new Lightweight clipboard mode option. This mode does not support all clipboard features.

For a list of supported and unsupported features, see Service REST form - Completing the Service tab.

OAuth 2.0 support in Integration Designer

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

Integration Designer now supports the configuration of OAuth 2.0 authentication with authorization code and client credential grant types. Use OAuth 2.0 authentication when creating a new data type, replacing a data source, or updating a data source.

For more information about REST integrations, see About Connect REST rules, and for more information about OAuth 2.0 Authentication, see OAuth 2.0 providers.

Improved search indexing performance

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

Search indexing now uses a queue processor to improve indexing performance. Indexing can automatically restart if the database goes down temporarily. This saves time and manual action. As a result of using the queue processor for indexing, the following changes have been made to the Search Landing page.

  • You cannot cancel indexing from the Search landing page. Cancel indexing by stopping the queue processor from the Data flow landing page.
  • The progress message is not shown. View progress on the Queue Processor landing page.
  • Queue processor information has been added.

For more information, see Stopping or pausing search reindexing.

Support for large binary data item storage in Pega Client for Windows

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

Pega Client for Windows can now store and synchronize large binary data items and their corresponding actions from the action queue. As a result, offline-enabled application users can view, attach, and delete data files from within a case view, whether the Windows-based device is online or offline. To use this feature, enable offline case attachment support, which allows offline-enabled applications to synchronize case attachments between Pega Platform™ and the device.

For more information, see Attach content support in offline mode and Enabling offline case attachments support.

More visibility of your production level

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

You can now see the production level of your environment in a new gadget that is available in all Pega Platform™ workspaces. To ensure that you immediately recognize your current environment, you can give it a unique name that is displayed when you click the gadget. In addition to specifying your production level and environment name on the System form in Dev Studio, you can now specify those values on the System & nodes page in Admin Studio.

For more information on Admin Studio, see Modifying your environment name and production level.

For more information on Dev Studio, see Specifying the production level.

Visualize application layers for case processes and sections

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

In App Studio, you can now easily visualize the application layers for case processes and sections, including work areas and views. When you click the Discover gadget for a case process or section, you are shown a visual representation of the application layers. You can open a layer in Dev Studio to see the rulesets and other attributes of an application.

For more information, see Discover gadget.
