This documentation is for non-current versions of Pega Platform. For current release notes, go here.

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.

Predictive models monitoring

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

In Prediction Studio, you can now monitor the predictive performance of your models to validate that they make accurate predictions. Based on that information, you can re-create or adjust the models to provide better business results, such as higher accept rates or decreased customer churn.

For more information, see Monitoring predictive models.

Kafka custom serializer

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

In Kafka data sets, you can now create and receive messages in your custom formats, as well as in the default JSON format. To use custom logic and formats for serializing and deserializing ClipboardPage objects, create and implement a Java class. When you create a Kafka data set, you can choose to apply JSON or your custom format that uses a PegaSerde implementation.

For more information, see Creating a Kafka data set and Kafka custom serializer/deserialized implementation.

Additional configuration options for File data sets

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

You can now create File data sets for more advanced scenarios by adding custom Java classes for data encryption and decryption, and by defining a file set in a manifest file.

Additionally, you can improve data management by viewing detailed information in the dedicated meta file for every file that is saved, or by automatically extending the filenames with the creation date and time.

For more information, see Creating a File data set for files on repositories and Requirements for custom stream processing in File data sets.

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.

Simplified testing of event strategies

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

Evaluate event strategies by creating test runs. During each run, you can enter a number of sample events with simulated property values, such as the event time, the event key, and so on. By testing a strategy against sample data, you can understand the strategy configuration better and troubleshoot potential issues.

For more information, see Evaluate event strategies through test runs.

Data flow life cycle monitoring

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

You can now generate a report from the Run details section of a Data Flow rule that provides information about run events. The report includes reasons for specific events which you can analyze to troubleshoot and debug issues more quickly. You can export the report and share it with others, such as Global Customer Support.

For more information about accessing event details, see Creating a real-time run for data flows and Creating a batch run for data flows.

Data flow runs retry connections that fail

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

Real-time and batch data flow runs now retry dataset connections that fail when the related service is temporarily unavailable, for example, when a connection to a Cassandra database times out. With the automatic retries, you no longer need to run data-heavy and CPU-intensive jobs multiple times and the maintenance of data flow runs diminishes significantly.

For more information about accessing event details, see Creating a real-time run for data flows and Creating a batch run for data flows.

Optimized performance of decision strategies

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

Strategies that are part of data flows are now automatically optimized to achieve the best performance. You can also choose the properties that a strategy outputs to further increase the efficiency without additional strain on your hardware. 

For more information, see Adding strategies to dataflows

Changes to the Attach Content control in Pega Client for Windows

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

Users who access offline-enabled Pega Platform™ applications from Pega Client for Windows can now use the Attach Content control within a case view to attach files with a native file picker control or take screenshots with a device camera. Images are immediately attached to the case, and image file names are based on a time stamp. If a device has no camera, the client skips the source selection step and the native file picker control opens.

For more information, see Harness and Sections forms – Adding an Attach Content control.
