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.

Limited access for end user portals

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.1

The following portals are only accessible from supported versions of Internet Explorer in “quirks” mode:

  • WorkUser
  • WorkManager

Nesting dynamic containers not supported

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.1

Do not include a section containing a dynamic container inside of another dynamic container. This configuration may cause performance issues resulting in unexpected behavior at runtime, and is not supported.

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.
