MBeans deprecated in favor of Pega API

Valid from Pega Version 8.1

The use of MBeans for cluster management has been deprecated, although MBeans will continue to function for legacy deployments. The recommended best practice for automating system management is to use the Pega API. For more information, see Pega API.

Dynamic layout improvements

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.6

The following usability improvements have been made to dynamic layouts:

  • Refresh conditions can be specified on a dynamic layout. You no longer need to create sections to create refresh boundaries.
  • Labels on an included section or nested dynamic layout can be specified with label-positioning specified in the skin.
  • Validation errors in a dynamic layout now display below the field.
  • Use natural label width for inline dynamic layouts so only necessary space is used.

Enhanced layout groups

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.6

Layout groups have been improved with the following features:

  • Added "Stacked" layout group that makes it possible for each item to be stacked under the other, with a completely customizable format that can responsively change to other types.
  • Include a section as a direct child without the need to wrap it in a dynamic layout.
  • Expand multiple accordion panes, allowing users to open any number of panes.

UI Kit for building and customizing UI

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.6

The UI Kit ruleset (UI-Kit-7) contains rules and skin for building or customizing user interfaces with the latest standard Pega UI, designed to ensure a responsive mobile-friendly UI.

By default, Application Express adds this ruleset to new applications built on the PegaRULES application. To use this ruleset in existing applications, or any applications built on a framework, add it to the Application ruleset list on your application form's Definition tab. Updating the UI Kit with the latest version allows you to take advantage of the latest features and styling. At the same time, this delivery mechanism of the UI Kit will ensure backward compatibility, providing a non-disruptive upgrade.

The UI Kit is delivered as a locked ruleset, and you can customize the rules by copying them into your application ruleset.

Fixed portal type deprecated

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.6

Existing portals configured as fixed still work, but there is no longer an option to create a new fixed portal type.

Set X-UA-Compatible mode on harness

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.6

Because Internet Explorer (IE) compatibility mode can adversely affect the standards mode in the Pega 7 UI, harness browser mode settings now expose the X-UA-Compatibility mode on a harness.

In previous versions of PRPC, this setting was hidden behind a when rule.

Pick modal dialog templates

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.6

Improved modal templates can be customized and used wherever a modal dialog is launched.

PRServlet not required in PRPC URLs

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.6

PRServlet is no longer required in a URL when accessing PRPC. A URL typically written like this:

http://example.com/prweb/PRServlet?[QueryString]

Can instead be written like this:

http://example.com/prweb/?[QueryString]

This change is effective only for PRPC 7.1.6 and newer versions. Older versions of PRPC still require using PRServlet in a URL.

Remove frames for single document dynamic containers

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.6

New single document dynamic containers are created with iFrame mode disabled by
default. Legacy iFrame mode is still available, but must be enabled by clicking
the Use Legacy iFrame mode check box.

API enhancements to Manage Recents list

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.6

The existing Recent(s) API has been enhanced to provide the following rules:

  • pzClearRecentItem: Clears a specific item
  • pzClearAllRecentItems: Clears all recent items

We'd prefer it if you saw us at our best.
