Source field not displaying in data transform

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.4

On the Data Transform rule form when using the Update Page action, if the Relation value is updated to “with values from”, the Source field will not be displayed.

(Note that for existing data transforms where the Source field has already been completed, this situation should not occur.)

Workaround

  1. Below is a data transform that has been configured to use Update Page.

  2. If a user were to choose an alternate source by updating the ‘with values from’ Relation value, they would not be prompted to provide a page name in the Source field.

  3. At this point, to be able to enter the Source page value, the user has to save the rule, which results in an error because the source page value is blank. This causes the field to appear.

  4. Once the field has appeared, the Source page value can be provided, and the form can be saved successfully.

Email approval and instantiation not supported on multitenant systems

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

The Enable email approval check box appears on the General tab of an approval step in Case Designer in multitenant systems. It also appears on the Approval shape in Designer Studio. In addition, in Designer Studio, the Settings tab in Case Designer displays the option to configure email instantiation. However, because configuring email listeners is not supported on multitenant systems, you cannot enable email approval or email instantiation.

MBean Javadocs download file

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

The Pega 7 Platform MBean Javadocs are no longer provided in the distribution image; however, you can download the MBeanJMXJavadoc.zip file that was previously provided in the distribution image.

You can also use JConsole, which is included with the Java Development Kit (JDK), to obtain MBean information. The JConsole MBean tab provides attributes, operations, notifications, and other information on all the MBeans that are registered with the MBean server.

Cannot send mobile push notifications when the Pega 7 Platform is hosted on WebSphere Application Server

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

Push notifications are not sent to Android or iOS mobile apps when the Pega 7 Platform is hosted on WebSphere Application Server.

No support for Android versions earlier than 4.4 on mobile devices

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

Pega® Platform dynamic layouts by default now use Flexbox-based rendering. As a result, mobile devices running on Android versions earlier than 4.4 are not supported in Pega Platform. Such devices cannot render correctly with Flexbox because the Pega Mobile Client includes the default stock browser on the Android operating system.

Package caching is not supported in offline-enabled applications built with the UI Kit 7 (09-01-01) portal

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

When you create an offline-enabled application in Pega® Platform, by default, it uses a portal with the UI Kit 7 (09-01-01) ruleset. In such a case, the package caching functionality cannot be used. You must either disable caching on the Advanced tab of the Access Group rule form, in the Offline Configuration section, or use an adaptive design instead of rendering different elements for different devices with the UI Kit 7 (09-01-01) ruleset.

For more information, see Access Group form - Completing the Advanced tab.

Unable to create text analytics models when Java 2 Security is enabled

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

Security exceptions that prevent you from creating text analytics models are caused by the Java 2 Security feature that is enabled at the JVM level. This feature denies access to the text analytics resources that are required for text parsing functions.

Creating a text analytics model results in a failure because of a number of security-related exceptions, for example:

java.security.AccessControlException: Access denied ("java.lang.RuntimePermission""createSecurityManager")

The suggested approach for avoiding this problem is to use the text analytics models that are provided by default, for example, pySentimentModels, pyTelecomTaxonomy, and so on.

For more information, see Text Analyzer.

No video controllers displayed on Android 4.3 and earlier versions

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

When you preview a video clip within Pega® Mobile Client on a mobile device that runs Android 4.3 or earlier versions, video controllers are not displayed in full-screen mode.

Extension attributes are not supported in PMML models

Valid from Pega Version 7.3.1

Models in the Predictive Model Markup Language (PMML) format version 4.3 that contain extension attributes with the x- prefix are not valid. These extension attributes are deprecated; you must use extension elements instead. In addition, if the output type of any output field in the model is set to FLOAT, change it to DOUBLE.

For more information, see PMML 4.3 - General Structure in the Data Mining Group documentation.

The Upload responses action is not supported for adaptive models with customized context

Valid from Pega Version 7.3.1

A default instance of the Adaptive Model rule contains five model identifiers (.pyIssue, .pyGroup, .pyName, .pyDirection, .pyChannel) that are used to partition adaptive models. If you add other identifiers in your Adaptive Model rule instance, you cannot upload responses to this instance with the Upload Responses wizard and the following error is displayed: The Flow Action post-processing activity pzUploadCSVFile failed: Cannot parse csv file.You can still train such adaptive models with data flows.

For more information, see Training adaptive models in bulk with data flows, Model context, and Uploading customer responses.
