New options to manage proposition validity

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

Manage your decisioning strategy more effectively with proposition validity settings. You can now set your propositions as always active, inactive, or active only within a defined time period. Setting a validity period for your propositions helps you to plan your strategy and automatically activate or deactivate propositions in the future.

For more information, see Proposition validity.

Push notification delivery to multiple devices

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

Push notifications sent from the Pega 7 Platform are now delivered to all devices on which a user is logged in to your custom mobile app, regardless of the device platform. You can either send push notifications from the Push Console to all users who have your application installed on their devices, or configure your application to send push notifications to indicate that an action might be required, a status update is available, or a case was approved.

Support for subflows and decision flow results in offline mobile apps

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

Subflows in offline-enabled mobile apps are now supported to perform additional tasks outside of the main flow. The subflow can run only on the current work item, with the subflow displaying in the main flow, in a nested subflow, or located next to an assignment. No likelihood routing is supported for subflows. It is also possible to set a flow result by using the pega.process.flow.setFlowEndStatus() JavaScript method to override the status set by a property in the subflow's end shape. The process engine also takes into account the likelihood setting if the flow result is conflicting or absent, provided the flow result is not in a subflow.

For more information, see Flow processing in offline mode.

Unicode-enabled database for international language support

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

The Pega 7 Platform database has been enhanced to natively support Unicode multibyte character set encoding when using Postgres on Pega Cloud. This enhancement allows you to store data in languages such as Japanese, Chinese, and Korean.

Support for error handling API in offline mobile apps

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

During the processing of cases in offline-enabled mobile apps, you can use several JavaScript API methods to perform error handling. You can now determine whether an error condition results from the post-processing of a flow or a subflow. You can also set, clear, or obtain the number of error messages on a property or a page while working in offline mode, similar to when you are running a Pega 7 Platform desktop application. When you run a custom mobile app in offline mode, you can submit a form, but you cannot move the flow forward until all the errors on a page and in the page's properties are resolved.

For more information, see Error handling in offline mode and Error handling API in offline mode.

Change the type of an existing field

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

You can now change the type of an existing field on the Data model tab of a case type or data type, resulting in a more efficient development process at design time. If there are any validation issues when changing a type, an error message is displayed, and the type cannot be modified by using this method.

Application administrators can send push notifications

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

From the Push Console application, administrators can send push notifications to custom mobile app users. Notifications sent from the Push Console can contain application-wide messages, for example, when an update is available for manual download.

For more information, see Push Console landing page.
