For more details, review the Designer Studio > System > Settings > Security Policies landing page.

Application Express and the Content Security Policy

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

Application Express copies (if defined) the Content Security Policy (CSP) name (pyContentSecurityPolicyName) from the built-on application in a new application. It also sets the CSP mode (pyContentSecurityPolicyMode) to report. The values appear in the Content Security area on the application rule's Integration & Security tab.

When checking an application in the DCO Compatibility tool, a warning appears if the CSP name is missing.

Application overlays are enhanced to include more rules types that business users can change through the Decision Manager portal

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

Revision management overlays have been extended to include additional rule types (decision tree, and map value), enhancing the extent to which business users can review and change the logic used in strategies. For more information on this new feature, see the Revision Management landing page.

Direct deployment of decision parameters

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

Direct deployment overlays now enable business users to own decision parameters. Revisions based on this new type of overlay can be directly activated by Decision Manager portal users. For more information on this feature, see the Revision Management landing page.

Predictive Analytics Director portal

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

Predictive Analytics Director (PAD) has been integrated into Pega7, allowing you to develop and generate predictive models that can be used in strategies and process flows. The following new rulesets have been added to PegaDM to support this functionality: PredictiveAnalytics-IntSvcs, and PredictiveAnalytics-UI. For more information on rules using models generated by the Predictive Analytics Director portal, see About Predictive Model rules.

Third party models integration made possible by directly importing PMML in predictive models

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

Predictive models can now import models in PMML format. The PMML integration in predictive models allows you to use third party models without extra conversion and configuration. For more information on this new feature, see About Predictive Model rules.

Improved adaptive model accuracy

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

Enhancements have been made in the grouping scores method that is used to create the adaptive model outcome profile (also known as: classifier). Because scores form the base for calculating propensities, these changes make models more accurate. The enhanced grouping scores method is available with any new model generated in Pega 7.1.7 and does not require any changes to existing adaptive model rules or adaptive model components. For more information on adaptive models, see About Adaptive Model rules.

In-memory Adaptive Analytics Manager process

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

The new internal Adaptive Analytics Manager (ADM) process running in PRPC makes it possible to use adaptive analytics without the availability of the external ADM server. Although not a replacement for the external ADM server, it streamlines the design and development of applications making use of adaptive analytics. For more information on the configuration that allows your application to use the internal ADM process, see the Infrastructure Services landing page.
