BIX performance improvements for CSV output in the Pega Cloud

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

BIX performance has been enhanced to download up to 25 GB of data per hour for extracts from a BLOB-less class table for CSV output. This high-throughput option is available only for Pega Cloud instances that use a Postgres database. This option is used automatically for these types of extracts.

When this option is used, the –x and –c command-line options for BIX are not supported, and the checkSum field in the manifest summary is not populated. If you need these options, you can revert to the previous implementation by using a setting in the prconfig.xml file.

For more information, see BIX high-throughput data downloads in the Pega Cloud.

Device preview includes a configurable list of common mobile devices

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

Pega Express device preview displays your application in a simulated mobile device. By previewing your application, you can view the user experience on a desktop, tablet, or phone. You can select from a list of common devices or add devices to the list by editing Pega-DevicePreview-Device.

For more information, see Previewing an application on a mobile device.

Ignore browser and operator locale to display Designer Studio in English

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

The operator preferences configuration includes the option to ignore the browser and operator locale. Some rulesets are shared between Designer Studio and end-user portals. Translated words might occasionally display in Designer Studio. Selecting the Ignore locale check box ignores the locale of the operator and browser to display Designer Studio portals in U.S. English only.

For more information, see Updating Designer Studio preferences.

Flexbox layout mode for dynamic layouts

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

The flexbox layout mode is available for dynamic layouts and is now the default layout mode for newly created dynamic layouts. In a flexbox layout, sections contained within the layout can grow or shrink to fit the available space, providing a more efficient way to distribute space between items in a container. Existing dynamic layouts can be converted to the flexbox layout mode. You can configure the layout mode on the Presentation tab of the Dynamic Layout property panel.

For more information, see Dynamic Layout Properties — Presentation tab.

Harness settings container format includes option for no markup

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

The harness container format includes a No markup option. This option removes the non-semantic table tags from the container header, making it more consistent with current UX best practices. The No markup option is required for the new flexbox-based dynamic layouts to work correctly in Internet Explorer 11.

For more information, see Harness form — Adding a container.

Field value inspector in Live UI

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

Easily identify and translate field values with the field value inspector. You can also use the field value inspector to validate translations and update missing or incorrect translations. The field value inspector is on the Localize tab of Live UI.

For more information, see Field Value Inspector.

Categorize repeating dynamic layouts

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

Rows of a repeating dynamic layout can be categorized by a property. Categorization is useful for creating date-based navigation or categorizing list items. You can also set the maximum height of a repeating dynamic layout in the Presentation tab of the repeating dynamic layout properties. You configure categorization on the Operations tab of the repeating dynamic layout.

For more information see Repeating dynamic layout - Operations tab.

Build consistent, high-quality sections with design templates

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.2

The Pega 7 Platform provides predefined design templates that you can apply to your sections. Templates eliminate the need to design or copy another layout each time you want to design a section. You also can create custom design templates that can be shared with other users. Custom templates can contain regions (dynamic layouts) that you can further customize for each section.

For more information, see Designing sections by using design templates.

Improved scrollable layouts in a new harness

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.2

By default, you can now create a new harness with a screen layout instead of as a container with a cell structure. This change ensures that you can create an application layout more efficiently; for example, you can specify a scroll area exactly the way you want in a desktop application or a mobile app. You can arrange the header, footer, and main area content at the new harness level by using sections. For example, you can specify headers and footers to be fixed or to scroll with the page. New layout options are configurable in the skin. Different layout selections are available when you use the harness as an app view, a main area, inner harness, or a page view.

For more information, see Configuring a screen layout.

New formats for styling report data grids

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.2

When you view a report, the data grid that is displayed is now styled by using either the List report format or the Summarized report format, depending on the report type. With this enhancement, you can display report data differently, and perhaps more effectively, than other grids in your portal. In the skin of your application, these new formats will be added and upgraded automatically by copying the Default format for the Trees & grids layout type, which was previously used to style reports.

For more information, see Modifying data grid formats for reports.
