Failed Robotic Assignments work queue type changed to Standard

Valid from Pega Version 8.5

The default Failed Robotic Assignments work queue type is now Standard. In previous releases, the default type was Robotic. For usage information, see Configuring a work queue for robotic automation.

Upgrade impact

After upgrading to Pega Platform 8.5 and later, you cannot save case types in which you configure the Queue for robot smart shape to route new assignments to the Failed Robotic Assignments work queue. Existing assignments that you routed to the Failed Robotic Assignments work queue are not affected.

How do I update my application to be compatible with this change?

As a best practice, do not use the Failed Robotic Assignments work queue in your custom implementations. Instead, configure the Queue for robot smart shape to route new assignments to a Robotic work queue. When possible, update existing case types to use the robotic work queues that you created in your application.

Atom Server and SOAP Server rule forms are deprecated

Valid from Pega Version 7.2

The Atom Server and SOAP Server rule forms are deprecated. Use the Connect CMIS rule form instead.

Existing rules that were created with the deprecated forms still work, but you cannot create new ones.

Use fast processing option does not work

Valid from Pega Version 7.3.1

The Use fast processing option on Connect REST and Service REST rule forms does not work unless you obtain the HFix-43000 hotfix from Global Customer Service.

Use the following data model guidelines when using fast processing:

  • The JSON property names and the clipboard property names must match.
  • The JSON tree structure and the clipboard tree structure must be similar.
  • The scalar arrays in JSON must be mapped to the clipboard as page lists.
  • Multi-dimensional arrays must be mapped into page lists of page lists with the same embedded property names.

​In addition, page groups, value groups, and Java objects are not supported by fast processing.
