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.

The Scratch Pad tool is no longer available

Valid from Pega Version 7.3.1

The Scratch Pad tool is no longer available. To add properties to a report from an end user portal, use the Data Explorer. The Data Explorer provides an efficient way to find a property or calculation to include as a column in a report.

For more information, see Data Explorer.

Custom scaling on x-axis for bubble charts

Valid from Pega Version 7.3.1

Bubble charts now support custom scaling for the x-axis as well as the y-axis. For example, you can now configure a fixed range for the x-axis.

For information about including a chart in a report, see Adding or editing charts from the Report Definition rule form.

Enable users to save charts as .png files

Valid from Pega Version 7.3.1

You can now enable users to save a report chart as a .png file. On the Chart tab of the Report Definition rule form, click General settings and select the Export chart to image check box. When you select this option, users are provided with the Save as image option, which they can use to save an image of the chart to include in a Word document or email.

For information about including a chart in a report, see Adding or editing charts from the Report Definition rule form.

Enhancements to exporting reports to Excel

Valid from Pega Version 7.3.1

When you export report results to Microsoft Excel, the process now creates a Data sheet and an Info sheet in the Excel file. By default, the Info sheet contains the report title, filters used to generate the report, the date when the report was generated, and the number of results returned.

If you want the report title and filters to display in the first sheet instead of the Info sheet, you can disable the default functionality. For more information, see Disabling the creation of an Info sheet in Excel output.
