Internet Application Composer (IAC) renamed to Pega Web Mashup

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.9

For more information, see Pega web mashups for embedding Pega Platform UI in external web pages.

Accessibility support using WAI-ARIA roles

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.9

The Pega 7 Platform supports accessibility by using Web Accessibility Initiative Accessible Rich Internet Application (WAI-ARIA) roles. WAI-ARIA roles are a World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) ontology that specifies roles, states, or properties for each user interface element. Roles provide semantic information about features, structures, and behaviors that assistive technologies use to convey information to users.

  • The dynamic container is marked as the main content area by default. When a user tabs through a page, the user can choose to follow a skip to the main content link by pressing the Enter key.
  • WAI-ARIA roles are included by default on screen layouts, and each panel of the screen layout is assigned a role that is based on its position.
  • Dynamic layouts can be configured with a specific WAI-ARIA role, depending on the function of the layout in the user interface.

Support for controlling binary file upload in Pega Mobile Client

Valid from Pega Version 7.4

The Client Store API of Pega® Mobile Client has been modified so that you can suspend and resume the process of uploading binary files to the server. You can also check the state of the file uploading process. As a result, custom mobile app users can process their work items without having to wait for the synchronization process to finish.

For more information, see Pega Mobile Client API methods for controlling binary data upload and Client Store API.

Support for large binary data item storage in Pega Mobile Client and offline case attachments in Pega Platform

Valid from Pega Version 7.4

Pega® Mobile Client can now store and synchronize large binary data items and their corresponding actions from the action queue on Android and iOS devices. As a result, custom mobile app users can view, attach, and delete data files, whether the device is online or offline. For this function to work, you must enable offline case attachment support, which allows your custom mobile apps to synchronize case attachments between the Pega Platform and the mobile device.

For more information, see Enabling offline case attachments support and Client Store API.

Section preview added for templated sections in Designer Studio

Valid from Pega Version 7.4

When you create a templated section, a preview displays on the Design tab of the Section form, showing how the section will look at run time. The section preview immediately shows the results of each design change that you make as you add, move, or delete elements, resize the section, or modify the application skin. By helping you visualize the section's runtime appearance, section preview reduces rework and saves you development time.

For more information, see Section preview shows changes in real time for templated sections.

Navigation support for test ID

Valid from Pega Version 7.4

The Navigation rule supports the addition of a test ID to each node. Test IDs support automated testing by providing a unique identifier for user interface elements. Add Test IDs to a navigation rule in the rule form configuration.

For more information, see Navigation form - Completing the Editor tab.

New PEGA0097 alert

Valid from Pega Version 7.4

In Pega Cloud, if a user attempts to establish a session and the configured maximum number of HTTP requestors on the cluster has been reached, the user is directed to a page that displays the PEGA0097 alert message. This alert helps to prevent a system from becoming overloaded.

For more information, see PEGA0097 alert.

Data Visualization controls are now available

Valid from Pega Version 7.4

Use a Data Visualization control when you need a highly configurable visualization beyond the standard pie, bar, and line charts. With a Data Visualization control, you can appropriately represent any type of data. You can add Data Visualization controls to sections or anywhere else a standard control can be used, such as dashboard widgets.

For more information, see Adding and configuring a Data Visualization control.

Layout groups support test ID on nested dynamic layouts

Valid from Pega Version 7.4

Dynamic layouts support the addition of a test ID to each dynamic layout within a layout group. Test IDs support automated testing by providing a unique identifier for user interface elements. Add test IDs to a dynamic layout within a layout group from the General tab of the layout properties.

For more information, see Dynamic Layout Properties - General tab.
