Organization Setup superseded by New Application Wizard

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.3

The Organization Setup Wizard has been retired in PRPC 7.1.3.  This feature was previously launched from the Designer Studio > Org & Security > Organization > Organization Setup menu. Users are encouraged to run the New Application Wizard (also known as Application Express) instead:

This tool quickly generates an application along with all of the artifacts previously offered by the Organization Setup Wizard. This includes, but is not limited to, the class hierarchy, application rule, organization/division/unit rules, and all relevant data instances.

See the following PDN article for more details on the New Application Wizard:

Updated Word merge support with Microsoft Silverlight plug-in

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.3

Starting in this release, Pega 7 features that integrate with the Word merge capability are now cross-browser. ActiveX controls (which are only compatible with Internet Explorer) have been replaced with Microsoft Silverlight. This plug-in must be downloaded separately from Microsoft because it is not shipped with Pega 7.

Common features that are affected by this change include the Specification form and Case Type landing page.

Prior to using these features, see the release note Word merge support with Microsoft Silverlight plug-in for more information about setting up their client systems.

Extended support for Dutch, Italian, and Portuguese in text analytics

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.2

The number of supported languages in the sentiment analysis feature of the Pega 7 Platform has been increased through the addition of sentiment lexicons for Dutch, Italian, and Portuguese in Text Analyzer rules. By using these lexicons, you can now determine the emotional tone of text samples that are written in these languages.

For more information, see Text Analyzer.

Free Text Model rule type name changed to Text Analyzer

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.2

The name of the Free Text Model rule type has been changed to Text Analyzer. When you upgrade to Pega 7.2.2, the rule type name of all Free Text Model rules in your application will change automatically to Text Analyzer.

For more information, see Text Analyzer.

New graphical layout and shapes on the Data Flow form

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.2

The Data Flow form has an enhanced layout that improves interaction with objects on the canvas and provides better readability of flow shapes. The enhancements also include the addition of Branch and Data Transform shapes, and the Convert shape, which supports page unpacking. With these enhancements, you can build data flows more efficiently and capture business requirements more effectively.

For more information, see Improvements to the Data Flow rule form and New shapes on the Data Flow form.

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.

Monte Carlo data set

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.2

You can now create a Monte Carlo data set that is filled with varied and realistic-looking data. You can use this type of data set to generate random data records to test strategies and data flows.

For more information, see Creating a Monte Carlo data set record.

Support for creating PegaUnit test cases for strategy rules

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.2

You can create PegaUnit test cases for strategy rules in Designer Studio and in the decisioning user portals to compare the output of a strategy to the results that are returned by running the strategy. For example, you can verify that the number of propositions per customer is less than or equal to a certain value.

BIX -I command-line option fails for unexposed properties

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.2

Business Intelligence Exchange (BIX) command-line extractions fail when the extract has a filter that uses unexposed property references that are passed in by the input file that you specified in the -I command-line option. Previously, the BIX extraction ignored the filter and the extraction did not fail.

BIX filtering now works like report filtering

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.2

Filtering for Business Intelligence Exchange (BIX) extracts has been enhanced to work like report filtering, making it easier to use. Existing filters that use the Contains/DoesNotContain filter operation will be converted to use the Equals/NotEquals filter operation.
