Editable list of build-on application features

Valid from Pega Version 8.4

Pega Platform™ now provides you with an option to edit the list of features in your application stack. Now you can define the order of the features to generate application documentation that lists the features by their priorities instead of the time of creation. For example, you can reorder the features when you want to communicate to your stakeholders which elements are top priorities.

For more information, see Learning about feature order.

Anypicker control in a condition builder

Valid from Pega Version 8.4

The condition builder now uses the Anypicker control to categorize the entities, such as fields or when conditions, that your application compares at run time. As a result, you can create conditions in a simplified and accelerated way. You can also select fields that are up to four levels deep within field groups.

Unicode-enabled database for international language support

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

The Pega 7 Platform database has been enhanced to natively support Unicode multibyte character set encoding when using Postgres on Pega Cloud. This enhancement allows you to store data in languages such as Japanese, Chinese, and Korean.

Change the type of an existing field

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

You can now change the type of an existing field on the Data model tab of a case type or data type, resulting in a more efficient development process at design time. If there are any validation issues when changing a type, an error message is displayed, and the type cannot be modified by using this method.

Open authoring for rule forms has been removed

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

Open authoring for rule forms has been removed. You can now edit decision tables and map values by using the application and supported browser of your choice; Microsoft ActiveX controls are no longer required. In addition, support for external XML, HTML, and Java IDE editors has been removed.

Pega Express application views simplify portal creation

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

Pega Express application views offer a simple, intuitive authoring experience for portals. Application view templates support responsive application development and offer mobile-specific templates. You can create portals by selecting from a predefined set of application view templates.

For more information, see Application views.

Rule form search

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

You can now search for content within some rule forms by clicking Search rule on the Actions menu. The search results and the tabs of the rule form that contain the search results are highlighted.

For example, you can find the properties that are used in a when condition inside an activity without navigating to each tab, when condition, transition, and method in the activity.

Delegate service-level agreements

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

You can now delegate service-level agreements (SLAs) to your business line by clicking Actions > Delegate. You can also delegate circumstanced versions of SLAs.

For more information about delegations, see Delegating a rule or data type.

Circumstance a rule by different properties

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

You can specialize or circumstance a rule by a different property even if the base rule is circumstanced by another property. This flexibility can help address cases where the same rule needs to be circumstanced by different properties. When you circumstance a rule by different properties, the circumstanced versions of the rule must be in different rulesets or Applies To classes.

You can circumstance a rule by a different property in the same ruleset, but in a higher version, by withdrawing the existing circumstanced versions.

For more information, see Circumstance a rule with different properties or templates.
