Data pages can source information from a robotic desktop automation

Valid from Pega Version 8.1

You can now configure data pages to source information from robotic desktop automations (RDA). Using an RDA to source a data page allows you to connect your Pega Platform™ application to any application that is accessible from an end-user's desktop. By using automations to retrieve data and load it into a data page, you can use data virtualization to separate your Pega Platform data model from the physical interface of a legacy system against which the automation is running.

For more information, see Obtaining information from robotic automations.

Supported artifacts section removed from repository rule form

Valid from Pega Version 8.1

The Supported artifacts check box has been removed from the repository rule form. Developers can use repositories to provide centralized storage, versioning, and metadata support for application artifacts.

For information about repository connections, see Creating a repository for file storage and knowledge management.

Archival support added to cases in Pega Cloud

Valid from Pega Version 8.1

You can now create an archival policy to move inactive cases from Pega Cloud to secondary storage. By periodically purging entries from your database, you can improve application performance.

For more information, see Case archiving.

New integration system resource

Valid from Pega Version 8.1

You can now define integration systems that you can use when you create data pages, integration connectors, and databases. Integration systems are associated with an icon that is displayed on the Integration Designer so that you can quickly view the systems that are used by your data types. This information is useful for assessing the effect of migrating to a new system of record and for understanding your data model.

For more information, see Creating an integration system.

Support for Data streaming service for Pega Cloud Marketing 7.4 applications

Valid from Pega Version 2.1

Pega Cloud Marketing 7.4 applications support the Kafka-based Stream service featured in Pega Platform 7.4.

Data view management added to Data Designer

Valid from Pega Version 8.1

You can now manage data views, called data pages in Dev Studio, in the Data Designer in App Studio. You can change a data view's data source without switching to Dev Studio. You can create a JSON mapping using a visual, drag-and-drop mapper.

For more information, see Data view management.

View data type relationships in Data Designer

Valid from Pega Version 8.1

You can now access a visual depiction of the relationships among data types from the Data Designer in App Studio. By understanding how data types depend on properties and other data types, you can extend your data model more quickly.

For more information, see Viewing data relationships.

Manage and visualize application data with the Integration Designer

Valid from Pega Version 8.1

Use the Integration Designer to manage data at the application level and to access a comprehensive view of all data objects in your application with their associated data. Additionally, from the Integration Designer, you can create data objects and map them to other objects and to systems of record.

For more information, see Managing application data with the Integration Designer.

Create and map data types in Integration Designer

Valid from Pega Version 8.1

Use the data type wizard in the Integration Designer to create data types and map them to systems of record. The data type wizard reduces complexity when creating and mapping data objects, resulting in reduced development time and a simpler workflow.

For more information, see Mapping fields.
