Data pages can source information from a robotic desktop automation

Valid from Pega Version 8.1

You can now configure data pages to source information from robotic desktop automations (RDA). Using an RDA to source a data page allows you to connect your Pega Platform™ application to any application that is accessible from an end-user's desktop. By using automations to retrieve data and load it into a data page, you can use data virtualization to separate your Pega Platform data model from the physical interface of a legacy system against which the automation is running.

For more information, see Obtaining information from robotic automations.

Archival support added to cases in Pega Cloud

Valid from Pega Version 8.1

You can now create an archival policy to move inactive cases from Pega Cloud to secondary storage. By periodically purging entries from your database, you can improve application performance.

For more information, see Case archiving.

Test ID added to repeating dynamic layouts

Valid from Pega Version 8.1

A unique Test ID property has been added to repeating dynamic layouts to support automated testing, enabling you to write dependable automated tests against any Pega application. By including this unique identifier in your automated testing, you ensure a higher level of productivity and reliability within your applications.

For more information, see Test ID and Tour ID for unique identification of UI elements.

Autogenerated controls have unique IDs

Valid from Pega Version 8.1

Autogenerated controls have a unique ID by default. This unique ID ensures that the Document Object Model (DOM) is HTML5-compliant and avoids problems that can be caused by elements having the same ID. The setting to enable or disable unique IDs is on the HTML5 Application Readiness page.

For more information, see Unique IDs in autogenerated controls.

Support for Data streaming service for Pega Cloud Marketing 7.4 applications

Valid from Pega Version 2.1

Pega Cloud Marketing 7.4 applications support the Kafka-based Stream service featured in Pega Platform 7.4.

New themes in App Studio

Valid from Pega Version 8.1

New themes in App Studio determine the default colors for elements in your user interface, such as buttons and links, as well as your typography. By selecting a theme in App Studio, you can quickly apply a consistent style to your application and save development time by not having to edit the application skin in Dev Studio.

For more information, see Changing your theme.

Select or edit a label format at run time

Valid from Pega Version 8.1

At run time in App Studio, when you edit a control, you can now select a new label format for the control or edit the currently selected label format. This change provides you with the flexibility to update control labels in real time as you process cases.

For more information, see Styling controls at run time.

Personalized table views

Valid from Pega Version 8.1

You can now configure tables so that users can personalize table views at run time. Users can specify which columns to display, resize and reorder columns, and set an initial sort order and initial column filter. When users save these personalized settings, the table displays the personalized view each time that users access the table.

Personalizing table views can help users work more efficiently by providing greater control over what data they see and how it is presented.

For more information, see Configuring a table for personalization.

AJAX container to host work items and harnesses

Valid from Pega Version 8.1

The new AJAX container can be used to host work objects, harnesses, or documents. The AJAX container provides design flexibility and improves the user experience by accelerating page loading. You can add the AJAX container from the Layout menu when you edit a section in a dynamic layout.

For more information, see AJAX container provides flexible display for work items.

Edit tables at run time

Valid from Pega Version 8.1

You can now edit tables at run time. For tables that have been configured to allow editing in App Studio, you can specify a visual style, change the table title, set the table pagination, add and remove columns, modify column titles, resize and reorder columns, and specify minimum and maximum column widths.

For more information, see Configuring a table at run time.
