Existing collections are deprecated

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

The original implementation of the Collection form is deprecated. Legacy instances in your application remain functional; however, any new instance you create uses the redesigned Collection form. Use the Decision category in the Records Explorer to view all collections available to you.

For guidance on upgrade limitations, see the Deprecated Collection form.

Messages are rule resolved by class

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

As part of the Message form redesign, a class key part was introduced. While this key part is automatically handled as part of an upgrade or migration, it does change the available options you see in message SmartPrompts and how Rule-Message instances are rule resolved.

See Upgrade considerations for existing messages for more information.

Changes to archive.info in Pega 7.1.7

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

In Pega 7.1.7, the contents of the archive.info file have changed.

  • In versions Pega 7.1.6 and earlier, the archive.info file displays the build number of the Pega installation.
  • As of Pega 7.1.7, the build number no longer appears in the archive.info file.

In Pega 7.1.7, the archive.info file only displays a status message indicating whether or not the system is running, and the build number no longer appears. Instead, if the system is operational, the message “status=Running” displays in the archive.info file.

If there are any automated tests, scripts, or applications that rely on the archive.info file displaying the build number, those may fail and produce an error. It is recommended that any automation that relies on the build number displaying in the archive.info file be changed to look for the “status=Running” message.

We'd prefer it if you saw us at our best.
