Ignore locale settings requires refresh after server restarts

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

The Ignore locale check box in operator preferences is selected to display Designer Studio in U.S. English. After a server restarts, screens initially ignore this setting. When the screen is refreshed or reopened, the screen is rendered as expected.

Flexbox-based dynamic layouts not supported for Android 4.4 and earlier

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

Flexbox-based dynamic layouts are not supported in Android 4.4 and earlier. When developing applications to be used on devices running Android 4.4 and earlier, use the inline-block layout mode for dynamic layouts.

Cannot send mobile push notifications when the Pega 7 Platform is hosted on WebSphere Application Server

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

Push notifications are not sent to Android or iOS mobile apps when the Pega 7 Platform is hosted on WebSphere Application Server.

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.

No support for Android versions earlier than 4.4 on mobile devices

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

Pega® Platform dynamic layouts by default now use Flexbox-based rendering. As a result, mobile devices running on Android versions earlier than 4.4 are not supported in Pega Platform. Such devices cannot render correctly with Flexbox because the Pega Mobile Client includes the default stock browser on the Android operating system.

Package caching is not supported in offline-enabled applications built with the UI Kit 7 (09-01-01) portal

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

When you create an offline-enabled application in Pega® Platform, by default, it uses a portal with the UI Kit 7 (09-01-01) ruleset. In such a case, the package caching functionality cannot be used. You must either disable caching on the Advanced tab of the Access Group rule form, in the Offline Configuration section, or use an adaptive design instead of rendering different elements for different devices with the UI Kit 7 (09-01-01) ruleset.

For more information, see Access Group form - Completing the Advanced tab.

No video controllers displayed on Android 4.3 and earlier versions

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

When you preview a video clip within Pega® Mobile Client on a mobile device that runs Android 4.3 or earlier versions, video controllers are not displayed in full-screen mode.

Tags disappear from Rich Text Editor source mode

Valid from Pega Version 8.5

When you use Rich Text Editor in HTML source mode, some tags disappear from the markup, which causes backward compatibility issues and data loss.

Cause

Pega Platform™ version 8.5.5 introduced the DOM Purifier security plugin. The plugin removes potentially vulnerable tags, including custom tags, from the raw HTML code in the Rich Text Editor source mode.

Workaround

You can disable the DOM Purifier plugin by adding the the window.disableDomPurifier = true markup to the userWorkForm HTML fragment rule.

Alternatively, as of Pega Platform version 8.5.6, you can add a tag to the allow list by including the window.rteCustomAllowedTags = ['myCustomTag'] snippet in the userWorkForm HTML fragment rule. 

In Pega Platform versions 8.5.6 to 8.6, the iframe tag is added to the allow list by default.
