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.

Automated Unit Testing is unavailable

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.1

Automated Unit Testing (AUT) is unavailable in 7.1.1 - 7.1.5.

Starting in 7.1.6, users can access AUT features from supported browser versions of IE.

IE8 limits expansion features

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.1

Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) does not support CSS media queries, which are used by re-expansion features in the Designer Studio. IE8 users with low screen resolution (800 x 600) and a small window size may find that the explorer area in the Designer Studio collapses but cannot re-expand. 

As a work around, access the Designer Studio from another supported browser version and use the recommended, minimum screen resolution width of 1280 pixels.

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.

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.

Upgrading Adaptive Decision Manager data mart tables might fail

Valid from Pega Version 7.3.1

Issue: Upgrade from 7.3 to 7.3.1 fails if the data contained in the pxInsName column of the PR_DATA_DM_ADMMART_PRED_FACT table is longer than 128 characters.

Reason: During the Pega Platform™ upgrade from 7.3 to 7.3.1, data in the Adaptive Decision Manager (ADM) data mart tables is migrated from the PR_DATA_DM_ADMMART_PRED_FACT table to the PR_DATA_DM_ADMMART_MDL_FACT table. In Pega 7.3.1, ADM uses only the PR_DATA_DM_ADMMART_MDL_FACT table where the pxInsName property can store values that are 128 characters long. In Pega Platform 7.3, the pxInsName property in the PR_DATA_DM_ADMMART_PRED_FACT table can store values that are 255 characters long. If the pxInsName property contains values that are longer that 128 characters, the upgrade fails.

Resolution: Issue an ALTER TABLE statement to change the pxInsName column size to 255 characters and resume the upgrade. For example:

ALTER TABLE rules.pr_data_dm_admmart_pred ALTER COLUMN pxInsName TYPE varchar(255);
