Organization Setup superseded by New Application Wizard

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.3

The Organization Setup Wizard has been retired in PRPC 7.1.3.  This feature was previously launched from the Designer Studio > Org & Security > Organization > Organization Setup menu. Users are encouraged to run the New Application Wizard (also known as Application Express) instead:

This tool quickly generates an application along with all of the artifacts previously offered by the Organization Setup Wizard. This includes, but is not limited to, the class hierarchy, application rule, organization/division/unit rules, and all relevant data instances.

See the following PDN article for more details on the New Application Wizard:

Attachment support for requirements

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.6

Requirements now support attachments. You can add attachments from the Designer Studio > Application > Profile > Requirements landing page, the Add/Edit Requirement modal, or the requirement rule form.

Enhanced document generation

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.6

The following usability improvements have been made to documents generated by the Application Document Wizard:

  • Stages and Processes now appear for case types that use Case Lifecycle Management. This diagram includes hyperlinks to corresponding sections in the document and is scoped to top-level processes only.
  • All flows (excluding pyStartCase) referenced by a case type now appear in documents. This removes previous constraints on non-starting, draft, and checked out flows.
  • Entity Relationship Diagrams (ERDs) are now embedded in documents as Visio objects.
  • Sections without content are omitted from the generated document.
  • Screenshots are labeled.
  • Requirement text (Long Description) is included in the Requirements Matrix section.
  • Linked requirements appear in context beneath their associated specification.
  • Acceptance Criteria appears in context beneath the associated specification, report, or correspondence item.

Updated Word merge support with Microsoft Silverlight plug-in

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.3

Starting in this release, Pega 7 features that integrate with the Word merge capability are now cross-browser. ActiveX controls (which are only compatible with Internet Explorer) have been replaced with Microsoft Silverlight. This plug-in must be downloaded separately from Microsoft because it is not shipped with Pega 7.

Common features that are affected by this change include the Specification form and Case Type landing page.

Prior to using these features, see the release note Word merge support with Microsoft Silverlight plug-in for more information about setting up their client systems.

Customizable New Application wizard

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.2

The redesigned New Application wizard streamlines the process of creating and configuring applications, and introduces customizable application templates. When you create an application from an application template, the template defines the wizard steps that gather the information that is needed to configure your new application based on the template. After you specify the required information in the wizard, the system creates an application with the required case types, data types, access groups, and operators. You can create multiple templates, depending on the needs of your business. Sample template types are provided.
