Report Browser removed from Designer Studio

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.9

The Report Browser and Access landing page have been removed from Designer Studio. In Designer Studio, developers can create, edit, and test reports by using the Report Definition rule form.

The Report Browser is still available in the Case Manager portal.

Case-insensitive filtering in reports

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

Filtering in reports is now case-insensitive, improving the reporting and searching experience. You can turn off case-insensitive filtering, for example, by using an activity. You might want to do this if your index is too big or if the length of time it takes for indexing impacts performance.

For more information on report filtering, see Editing filter conditions.

Identify Pega unit test cases associated with inactive or deleted rules

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

From the Application: Unit testing landing page, you can view a list of all Pega unit test cases that are associated with inactive or deleted rules in the currently included applications. You cannot use these test cases because they will always fail.

Either remove such test cases, or reactivate the rules that they are associated with.

For more information, see Application: Unit testing landing page.

Merged test-coverage report improves overview of application quality

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

You can now merge multiple application-level test coverage reports from built-on apps into a single report. This single test-coverage report provides an overview of your application's quality, and eliminates the need to manually collate data from multiple reports.

For more information, see Generating a merged coverage report.

More display options for charts

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

Display properties have been expanded for charts that you add to a report harness or section. In addition to setting general display properties, you can set visibility and color options, control hover highlight behavior for data points and legends, and define more presentation options for grids and tooltips. The additional presentation options enhance your chart design and provide a way for you to effectively highlight important data.

For more information about configuring charts, see Harness and section forms - Adding a chart.

Better navigation between pages

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

The navigation between landing pages and configuration pages in App Studio has changed so that only one tab at a time is displayed in the work area. This change eliminates the maximum tab limit message. Navigate to previous pages by clicking the back arrow at the top of the work area or click the Back to preview button in the workspace header to open a page in the selected device preview.

Progress gauge and double donut charts

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

To better visualize data, use the new progress gauge chart and double donut pie charts. The progress gauge chart measures the progress made against a goal. The double donut pie chart shows two layers of data in a single chart. The progress gauge chart can be included in reports and dashboard widgets. The double donut chart can be added to dashboard widgets.

For more information about including charts in reports, see Harness and section forms - Adding a chart.

For more information about adding charts to dashboard widgets, see Adding a widget to your dashboard.

Updates to creating and cleaning the test data for automated tests

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

Creating test data for automated tests is now easier and more customizable. During test case or suite creation, you can now create objects, load work and data objects, and add user pages from the clipboard. These objects and pages can be further configured and will be available in the clipboard when you run the test.

For test cases, you can now define a separate set of actions to perform after the tested rule is run, such as applying a data transform, loading a data page or object, or running an activity,

You can also prevent test data from being removed from the clipboard after a test is run so that subsequent tests can use the same test data.

For more information, see Setting up your test environment and Cleaning up your test environment.
