Use SAML 2.0 to provide single sign-on authentication

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.6

Configure a SAML 2.0 authentication service to provide web single sign-on (SSO) convenience to product users in your enterprise. A one-click option lets you import Identity Provider (IdP) metadata and make use of automated certificate management.

Internet Application Composer (IAC) renamed to Pega Web Mashup

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.9

The name of Internet Application Composer (IAC) has changed to Pega Web Mashup.

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

FTP server records enhanced for SSH FTP

When using SSH FTP (SFTP) in an FTP Server record, you can securely transfer files by using SSH keys. You can enable and configure SFTP by opening the FTP server record and completing the fields in the Protocol section.

For more information, see SSH FTP for FTP server records.

Interact with cases from external applications

Valid from Pega Version 7.2

You can now achieve API case integration by using the Integration case-wide property to generate code that allows you to interact with cases from external applications. The Generate create case microservice code option for microservice APIs automatically generates code that is specific to your case type. This option complements the Generate mashup code option, which generates code that you can use to embed Pega 7 Platform content in another application's web page.

Connect to external REST APIs by using OAuth 2.0

Valid from Pega Version 7.2

You can now connect to external REST services that are provided by web applications, such as Twitter and Facebook, by using the OAuth 2.0 protocol client credentials grant. Your Pega 7 Platform application acts as an OAuth 2.0 client to access protected API resources. For example, you can connect to Twitter by using OAuth 2.0 to obtain a collection of tweets that match a specific query.

For more information, see Accessing protected API resources by using OAuth 2.0.

Access REST services and APIs by using OAuth 2.0

Valid from Pega Version 7.2

You can now allow external client applications to access REST services on your behalf by using the OAuth 2.0 protocol client credentials grant. The Pega 7 Platform acts as an OAuth 2.0 provider to grant trusted applications access to functions in Pega 7 Platform applications. Additionally, you can provide access to the Pega API by using OAuth 2.0.

View external data entities in one location

Valid from Pega Version 7.2

The External Data Entities landing page provides a consolidated view of all the existing data entities in your product. You can access this page by clicking Designer Studio > Data Model > View external data entities. Use this landing page to identify the data sources that are readily available to use and the sources that need to be replaced with production data sources.

Enhanced data modeling

Valid from Pega Version 7.2

You can now create data types quickly in the Pega 7 Platform and in Pega Express. Use the enhanced Data Designer user interface to define the data model for your data types. More field types have been added, and they are categorized as simple, fancy, and complex to meet your data modeling needs.

For more information, see Data Designer enhancements.

Updates to the Authentication Profile rule form

Valid from Pega Version 7.2

You can now create OAuth 2.0 authentication profiles by using the enhanced rule form. For this profile type, you can select an OAuth 2.0 Provider data instance, a grant type, and the client information that you obtained from your OAuth 2.0 provider, such as Box or Facebook. You can also revoke issued access tokens on this rule form.

For more information, see Access protected API resources by using OAuth 2.0.
