Add the security checklist to applications created before 7.3.1

Valid from Pega Version 7.3.1

The security checklist is now automatically added to applications. You can manually add the security checklist to applications that were created in earlier versions.

You can improve the security of your application by completing the tasks on the checklist.

The following task reflects the procedure on how to manually add the security checklists to Designer Studio prior to 7.3.1:

  1. In the header of Designer Studio, click the name of the application, and then click Definition.
  2. Click the Documentation tab.
  3. In the Application guides section, click Add guide.
  4. In the Application guide& field, enter pxApplicationSecurityChecklist.
  5. Click the Configure icon in the Available in column and select the portals (App Studio and Dev Studio) that you want to add the security checklist to.
  6. Click Save.

Enabling security policies now requires current password

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.3

As part of Pega’s initiative to protect against malicious attacks, the change password dialog has been enhanced.  When Security Policies have been enabled for your system, new users or those with expired passwords will now be prompted for both their existing password as well as their desired new password.

For more details, review the Designer Studio > System > Settings > Security Policies landing page.

Application Express and the Content Security Policy

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

Application Express copies (if defined) the Content Security Policy (CSP) name (pyContentSecurityPolicyName) from the built-on application in a new application. It also sets the CSP mode (pyContentSecurityPolicyMode) to report. The values appear in the Content Security area on the application rule's Integration & Security tab.

When checking an application in the DCO Compatibility tool, a warning appears if the CSP name is missing.

Display read-only formatting

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

When an editable field is in focus, date and text inputs display unformatted numerical values if the Display value using read-only formatting check box is selected. Unformatted text allows users to enter numerical values without adding currency symbols or decimal separators. The read-only formatting option appears for the Currency, Date Time, Integer, Number and Percentage control types when the Editable field is not in focus.

New menu design options with the auto-generated menu control

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

Usability and responsive capabilities have been enhanced with a new auto-generated menu control offering multiple design options and configurations. New display options include text, descriptions, badges, and responsive vertical in-line menus. Loading options include:

  • At screen load
  • Defer load
  • On first use
  • On every use

Show menu controls for existing applications can be upgraded using the Upgrade Show Menu button in the HTML5 Readiness feature.

Dynamic container improvements

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

Dynamic containers no longer take up excessive screen space when placed in a dynamic layout or in a section. Dynamic containers placed in a layout inherit the styling and positioning of the dynamic layout. Dynamic containers can also be dragged and dropped or copied and pasted between layouts.

Selecting the Size To Content check box when configuring a dynamic container resizes the container at runtime to fit the harness content.

Enable Dynamic container responsiveness with the Size To Content setting.

Mobile optimized date and time controls

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

Date and time controls now support mobile browser-native date and time pickers on Android and iOS, making date and time selections easier for the end-user. This option is enabled in the Presentation tab of the Text input control Cell properties panel.

Native date and time selection on Android

Paragraph rule responsive images

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

Images inserted in a paragraph rule can be configured to resize in response to the browser size, allowing an end-user to view the entire image without scrolling. Select the Auto resize check box in the paragraph rule Image Properties dialog to enable image responsiveness.

Most Recently Used order

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.7

The order of the Most Recently Used (MRU) tabs or documents persists after a browser crash or refresh. Time stamps of the tabs in the MRU cache are maintained in the clipboard on the server and are reviewed in the event of a crash or refresh. If the existing MRU state is empty or not present, the MRU order is based on time stamps from the clipboard. This means that in the event of a crash you can get back to work more quickly.
