CyberArk password vault support added for Pega database

Valid from Pega Version 8.3

With the CyberArk password vault, you can store your systems' passwords in a secure, central location and retrieve them from that location instead of directly entering credentials into the systems. This support is available only for IBM WebSphere environments.

For more information, see Pega Platform deployment guides.

Support added for multiple mashups

Valid from Pega Version 8.3

You can now include multiple mashups on a single webpage or browser, even if the mashups have different application and authentication requirements. Use mashups to embed a Pega Platform™ application as a gadget on your website. For example, you can embed Web Chatbot and Self-Service Advisor on the same website.

For more information about mashups, see Configuring the Mashup channel.

Pega 7.1.1 supports Java 6 and Java 7 SDKs only. Ensure that the JDBC driver you are using supports those versions of Java. See your database installation or upgrade documentation for additional information.

Improved management of batch indexing

Valid from Pega Version 8.3

You can now cancel and check the status of a batch index process directly from the Search landing page in Dev Studio. The landing page now refreshes automatically every 10 seconds so that you can easily see the most recent status of the batch index process. Additionally, the reindex operation is now 20% faster than in previous versions. These features provide greater visibility into batch indexing and improve your ability to fix issues with a batch indexing process.

For more information about batch indexing, see Rebuilding search indexes from the user interface.

Define a default reporting database

Valid from Pega Version 8.3

You can now easily define a reporting database for all classes that are assigned to a primary database. You can also assign this reporting database as the default reporting database. This provides support for reporting against Amazon Aurora read replicas. AWS Aurora increases the performance and stability of your database management system.

For more information about reporting, see Report Definition data access tab.
