Semantic URLs in Pega Platform

Valid from Pega Version 8.5

URL addresses for Pega Platform™ applications and application resources now appear as clear, meaningful paths. This enhancement helps users understand the structure of the application that they are using, which makes navigation quicker and more intuitive.

Default views for cases and data objects

Valid from Pega Version 8.5

Pega Platform™ now generates default views for new case types and data objects. Because of this feature, your application now automatically creates a case summary and case details view for every new case type, and a list view for each data object. The default views automate a common recurring task, and improve productivity by reducing development effort.

Improved view authoring

Valid from Pega Version 8.5

Case authoring in Cosmos React UI now features updated view authoring tools. The redesigned view tab and overlay provide a more intuitive interface for creating views, applying design templates, and adding fields and controls. This enhanced work environment improves the user experience and reduces context switching, which contributes to a lower development effort.

For more information, see Editing views in a case type.

Enhanced tables in Cosmos React UI

Valid from Pega Version 8.5

The Pega Platform™ Cosmos React UI environment now includes improved tables. The updated tables use a revamped graphic design and support a number of new run-time behaviors, including column freezing and advanced filtering. The added features improve the user experience by giving case workers more control over data in tables, while the revised architecture enhances efficiency and reliability.

More intuitive portal authoring

Valid from Pega Version 8.5

Pega Platform™ now features an updated portal authoring interface that provides you with tools to edit landing pages, case pages, and portal settings all in one place. The interface also includes a live preview section that speeds up prototyping, encourages experimentation, and makes the authoring experience more user-friendly.

For more information, see Enabling Cosmos React UI for landing pages.

Cosmos React UI is now available in Pega Platform

Valid from Pega Version 8.5

Pega Platform™ now provides you with tools to develop React-based applications in App Studio. This enhancement, which was developed as part of Project Fnx, uses components that rely on the ReactJS library to power the Cosmos design system. The updated UI technology improves application performance, creates a better user experience, and provides greater flexibility for front-end developers by drawing from a well-established open-source technology.

In Pega Platform 8.5, Cosmos React UI is an opt-in beta. For more information about using Cosmos React UI in your application, see Previewing Cosmos React UI.

To learn about Project Fnx, see Project Fnx.

Support for advanced validation of embedded and referenced data

Valid from Pega Version 8.5

To help you define validation conditions for a broader range of use case scenarios, Pega Platform™ now supports stage entry validation for embedded fields in the form of a validation matrix. You can now define validation conditions for both field groups and field group lists, and easily navigate between them. You can also select any fields and when conditions while building a condition for both field-level and stage-level validation.

For more information, see Validating field values for stage entry.

Complete email and notification approval in App Studio

Valid from Pega Version 8.5

App Studio now supports complete email approval configuration directly in the Case Designer. Email approval settings now include composing a new message or selecting a template, saving templates to a library for future reuse, and adding attachments to an email. Additionally, you can now send the approval as a push notification to mobile users. With full configuration of email approval in App Studio, you save time and create unique and personalized email messages and push notifications in a no-code, intuitive way. 

For more information, see Obtain approvals from email and push notifications from App Studio (8.5), Requesting approval by email and push notification.

Declarative Network Viewer tool uses Pega components

Valid from Pega Version 8.5

The Declarative Network Viewer tool now uses out-of-the-box Pega components. In earlier releases, the tool relied on Adobe Flash Player, which is gradually being phased out of modern browsers. This enhancement maintains the original functionality, while ensuring product and technological continuity.

For more information, see the Declarative Network Viewer article in the Pega Marketplace.

New search option for optimized tables

Valid from Pega Version 8.5

Optimized tables now support the display of a search box at the top of the table. The new search option provides an efficient way to enhance tables with a convenient text-based search functionality without coding.

For more information, see Enabling search in a table.
