Default value of the threadpoolsize agent affects batch indexing
Valid from Pega Version 8.5.2
After you patch Pega Platform to version 8.5.2 or higher, the system changes the default value of the threadpoolsize agent, which controls the number of concurrent activities (threads) in the system, from 5 to 15. Batch indexing in Pega Platform™ does not require all 15 threads, so you can change the agent value to increase system performance by managing the indexing/distributed/batch/numworkers dynamic system setting.
If your deployment does not support that setting, and batch indexing does not use Queue Processors, the system uses the threadpoolsize value for batch indexing instead.
For more information, see Editing a dynamic system setting.
Split schema systems require additional privileges
Valid from Pega Version 7.1.2
On Oracle split schema systems, add the following database privileges:
- Grant DROP ANY INDEX to the Admin User.
- Grant UNLIMITED TABLESPACE to the Rules User.
Use the Oracle Enterprise Manager to add these privileges or refer to the 7.1.3 Upgrade and Installation guides for Oracle.
Add additional columns to customized work history tables
Valid from Pega Version 7.1.6
The standard work history table, pc_history_work, contains two new columns that return the latitude and longitude coordinate location of the action that prompted the history. Mobile devices can display this location as a street address. If you have a customized work history table, add these two columns to it:
<decimal name="pxLatitude" size="19" scale="9"/>
<decimal name="pxLongitude" size="19" scale="9"/>
