End of support for form-based rule forms in Pega 7.1.9

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.9

Rule forms that are configured to render as forms are no longer supported in Designer Studio or end-user applications. Form-based configurations are found on custom rule types that were created in earlier versions of Pega 7 and are characterized by pop-up windows that are rendered externally from Designer Studio.

Reconfigure Pega 7 applications that use such rule forms by using standard harnesses and sections.

  1. Open the class form.
  2. Click the Advanced tab.
  3. Select Harness from the Rule formmenu.
  4. Create a new harness and new sections that implement the logic of the custom rule, using standard user interface layouts and controls.

Migrating custom rule forms to harnesses and sections offers the following benefits:

  • User interfaces become HTML5 WC3 compatible and responsive to different screen sizes.
  • User interfaces become cross-browser compatible, rendered consistently in Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, and recent versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer.
  • Rendering performance on modern browsers is dramatically improved.
  • User interface pop-up behavior is eliminated; all windows are rendered inside Designer Studio and end-user applications.

The UpdateAdaptiveModels agent causes an exception after Pega 7.2 to 7.2.1 upgrade

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

After the Pega 7 Platform is upgraded from version 7.2 to 7.2.1, the log files might show an error that is caused by the UpdateAdaptiveModels agent. This agent is enabled by default and is responsible for updating scoring models in the Pega 7 Platform. If you use adaptive models in your solution, you can avoid this error by configuring the Adaptive Decision Manager service. If you do not use adaptive models, disable the UpdateAdaptiveModels agent.

For more information, see Configuring the Adaptive Decision Manager service and Pega-DecisionEngine agents.

Reconfiguration of the Adaptive Decision Manager service after upgrade to Pega 7.2.1

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

After you upgrade the Pega 7 Platform to version 7.2.1, you need to reconfigure the Adaptive Decision Manager service. Beginning with Pega 7.2.1, the Adaptive Decision Management (ADM) service is native to the Pega 7 Platform and is supported by the Decision data node infrastructure.
