Data synchronization does not resume after mobile app restart
Valid from Pega Version 8.3
If an offline-enabled mobile app that you build with Pega Infinity Mobile Client™ is stopped during an initial data synchronization session, the data synchronization does not resume when the mobile app is restarted. Users must not stop the mobile app before initial data synchronization finishes.
For more information about data synchronization, see Offline capability and Guidelines for creating an offline-enabled application.
Mobile features deprecated in 8.4
Valid from Pega Version 8.4
Following the introduction of new functionalities for mobile apps, some features are reaching end of life. To avoid additional effort during updates to future releases, do not use deprecated features.
In the 8.4 release, the following features are no longer recommended:
- Mobile Client 7 is now deprecated and planned for removal in 8.5. Use Pega Infinity Mobile Client to meet the mobile needs of your business.
- The Reuse existing web portal functionality is deprecated and planned for removal in 8.5. For improved app performance and more efficient development, use the mobile app builder in the mobile channel. Also, you must convert existing projects to use separate channels for mobile and web portals before upgrading to 8.5.
In addition, the Pega Mobile Express app has been removed from app stores and replaced with the Pega Mobile Preview app.
Empty properties are not included in snapshot
Valid from Pega Version 7.2.2
History records are smaller and more efficient, because empty properties are no longer included in the snapshot. However, as a result, the history snapshot for sections might present a distorted view of the section.
The worklist appears to be empty when you go back from an opened case in an offline-enabled mobile application
Valid from Pega Version 7.4
In a Pega® Platform offline-enabled application, when you go back to the worklist from an opened case, the worklist appears to be empty even though it contains cases. This issue will be fixed in the next release of Pega Platform. Only portals that use the key principles and design of the pyCaseWorker portal are supported in offline-enabled applications.
For more information, see Offline mobility guidelines.
