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.

For more information, see Create conditions faster with an Anypicker control (8.4)Adding an Anypicker controlDefining conditions in the condition builder.

Privilege required for Recent Explorer

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.1

Users with custom roles defined must add the pxUpdateRecents privilege to see work in the Recent Items Explorer. 

Use standard Developer portal

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.1

Customized versions of the Developer portal rely on legacy components and are not supported.

To avoid backwards compatibility issues, update your access group to point to the standard Developer portal prior to upgrade.

Top-level (named) pages may no longer be classless

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.1

Newly created top-level (named) pages may no longer be classless or have a blank pxObjClass property. This change can affect applications upgrading from versions prior to Pega 7 to the latest version, especially when:

  • Application logic relies on a blank value in the pxObjClass property.
  • An activity assumes a new top-level page is classless and explicitly sets pxObjClass in a Property-Set step.
  • A data transform assumes a new top-level page is classless and explicitly sets pxObjClass using a Set action.

To avoid application failures, remove or update any logic that expects a blank pxObjClass. Where possible, use the new engine API that finds a page by both name and class:

findPageWithException(PageName, ClassName);

Activities and data transforms continue to create a top-level page when one does not exist. The class name is now derived from the Pages and Classes tab.

Designer Studio

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.3

Numerous usability improvements were made for this release. A group of cosmetic, functional, and performance enhancements were also included.

  • Treegrid controls work more quickly in IE9 and IE10.
  • On application ruleforms, the 5.4 "Place Properties on Thread Page" checkbox will work in 7.1.
  • Message error handling has been improved.
  • Log messages have been cleaned up.
  • Connectors may now be used in Data Pages.
  • Move Rules wizard has been enhanced to work in Version 7.1.

All tabs are accessible on delegated rule forms

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.1

Delegates can now access all tabs in a delegated rule form.

You can continue to customize the development experience for delegated users, such as line managers, who may not require the full set of rule form options. For example, you can prevent users from adding new nodes on the Decision Tree form or using the expression builder on the Map Value form. All users, including delegated users, can remove these restrictions if they hold a rule-editing privilege.

For more details on this process and a list of commonly delegated rules, see How to delegate a rule.

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