Deprecated end user portals

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.1

The following portals are no longer be supported:

  • SysAdmDD
  • WorkUserDD
  • WorkManagerDD

As a best practice, customize standard, supported portals rather than update your existing portals to include new features.

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.

Changes to the Attach Content control in Pega Client for Windows

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

Users who access offline-enabled Pega Platform™ applications from Pega Client for Windows can now use the Attach Content control within a case view to attach files with a native file picker control or take screenshots with a device camera. Images are immediately attached to the case, and image file names are based on a time stamp. If a device has no camera, the client skips the source selection step and the native file picker control opens.

For more information, see Harness and Sections forms – Adding an Attach Content control.

Manage test ID access with an access group role

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

Test IDs for user interface components are available only to users who have the PegaRULES:TestID role added to their access group. This requirement allows administrators to limit access to test IDs to users who create or run tests. At run time, applications do not include the test ID data for users without the PegaRULES:TestID role, which reduces the amount of code that is downloaded to the client.

For more information see Managing Test ID access with an access group role

Text file rules support the Google Closure Compiler

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

Text file rules support Google Closure Compiler as the default option for minification of JavaScript code. Minification reduces the size of JavaScript in text file rules for faster download. Access the Closure Compiler by selecting it in the Minification menu in a text file rule. For more information, see Text File rules - Completing the Main tab.

Date range option added to DateTime control

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

The autogenerated DateTime control, used in forms, now features a custom date range option in the calendar picker. To specify a time period, click the From date and To date fields on an interactive calendar overlay. This input method is both convenient and mobile-friendly.

Enhancements to the AJAX container

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

It is now possible to set a document limit for an AJAX container, between 2 and 16 to control the number of documents opened by users. To reduce development time, you can also choose a new option to have no default view. The multidocument mode features tabbed navigation so that users can switch between open documents. A tabless container, on the other hand, includes an out-of-the-box navigation action for Home, which helps application users move within the portal.

For more information, see Configuring the AJAX container.

Moderate and severe guardrail warnings require justification

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

When checking in a rule, all moderate and severe warnings must be justified. Guardrail warnings now appear in a warning header when you save a rule that has warnings. Requiring justification encourages developers to address guardrail warnings. For more information see Application guardrails require justification.


Include region headers on forms

Valid from Pega Version 8.2

When you create or modify forms, you can now include region headers for sections that are based on design templates. You can enter a title for the region, select a container format for the header, add icons, and select styles. This greater flexibility enables you to create a more intuitive user interface.

For more information about modifying a design template, see Design templates.
