Semantic URLs in Pega Platform

Valid from Pega Version 8.5

URL addresses for Pega Platform™ applications and application resources now appear as clear, meaningful paths. This enhancement helps users understand the structure of the application that they are using, which makes navigation quicker and more intuitive.

Default views for cases and data objects

Valid from Pega Version 8.5

Pega Platform™ now generates default views for new case types and data objects. Because of this feature, your application now automatically creates a case summary and case details view for every new case type, and a list view for each data object. The default views automate a common recurring task, and improve productivity by reducing development effort.

Improved view authoring

Valid from Pega Version 8.5

Case authoring in Cosmos React UI now features updated view authoring tools. The redesigned view tab and overlay provide a more intuitive interface for creating views, applying design templates, and adding fields and controls. This enhanced work environment improves the user experience and reduces context switching, which contributes to a lower development effort.

For more information, see Editing views in a case type.

Enhanced tables in Cosmos React UI

Valid from Pega Version 8.5

The Pega Platform™ Cosmos React UI environment now includes improved tables. The updated tables use a revamped graphic design and support a number of new run-time behaviors, including column freezing and advanced filtering. The added features improve the user experience by giving case workers more control over data in tables, while the revised architecture enhances efficiency and reliability.

More intuitive portal authoring

Valid from Pega Version 8.5

Pega Platform™ now features an updated portal authoring interface that provides you with tools to edit landing pages, case pages, and portal settings all in one place. The interface also includes a live preview section that speeds up prototyping, encourages experimentation, and makes the authoring experience more user-friendly.

For more information, see Enabling Cosmos React UI for landing pages.

Cosmos React UI is now available in Pega Platform

Valid from Pega Version 8.5

Pega Platform™ now provides you with tools to develop React-based applications in App Studio. This enhancement, which was developed as part of Project Fnx, uses components that rely on the ReactJS library to power the Cosmos design system. The updated UI technology improves application performance, creates a better user experience, and provides greater flexibility for front-end developers by drawing from a well-established open-source technology.

In Pega Platform 8.5, Cosmos React UI is an opt-in beta. For more information about using Cosmos React UI in your application, see Previewing Cosmos React UI.

Enhanced reliability and stability of scenario tests

Valid from Pega Version 8.5

Several enhancements have been made to scenario tests to increase their stability and reliability. With enhanced improvements, you can now:

  • Delay the execution of a step within a scenario test to add latency to a web browser and actions on a web page. This prevents tests from failing when a dynamic web page does not load all page element at once, but the test finds page elements that are immediately rendered.
  • Automatically rerun failed scenario tests, which might fail because there are temporal stability issues on the environment or because the application UI is slowly renders.
  • View the run history of scenario tests so that you can analyze the history of a test over time.

Support for predictive models in PMML version 4.4

Valid from Pega Version 8.5

Pega Platform™ now supports the import of predictive models in Predictive Model Markup Language (PMML) version 4.4. With this feature, you can import PMML models that use the anomaly detection algorithm.

For a list of all supported PMML models, see Supported models for import


Automate business process tracking by importing Excel files

Valid from Pega Version 8.5

To track business processes status and data, you can now import Excel files when you create a case or data object in App Studio. This functionality provides the following enhancements:

  • You can now upload a CSV file when you create a case or data object in App Studio. By importing a CSV file, you can use the data in your spreadsheet to define your data model.
  • You can generate a data import template that you can use to import a file in its original format during production.
  • You can upload .xlsx files to avoid resaving your Excel file as a CSV file.

For more information, see Creating a data model from a spreadsheet.

Consistent search experience in App Studio

Valid from Pega Version 8.5

Pega Platform™ now supports a unified search mechanism in App Studio. Instead of manually locating a single item, such as a case type, a channel, or a data object, you can simply use the Search option in the navigation pane. You can also use Search in case types and personas landing pages, to conveniently access the information that you need, for example channels and case types associated with a persona.
