Modernize landing pages in your applications by enabling React. The React library uses client-side rendering to produce a more efficient and dynamic interface.
- Review the process of implementing Cosmos React UI on your system. For more information, see Implementing Cosmos React UI in Pega Platform.
- Ensure that Pega Infinity is using a secure HTTPS protocol.
In Pega 8.5, all new applications use React-based landing pages by default. In applications that are built on earlier Pega Platform versions, you enable React-based landing pages manually. When you enable Cosmos React UI for landing pages, the application takes on a hybrid architecture, in which most components retain the classic server-side rendering, but the portal authoring uses the updated client-side technology.
- When you enable React components, security settings change in the background. To improve your application security, you can use only authentication mechanisms with unified authentication scheme (PRAuth). If you want to use the React UI library, a custom authentication scheme is not supported.
- Some browsers might not support React components. For more information about browser compatibility, see Pega Platform Client Operating System and Browser Support.
In the header of Dev Studio, click the name of the application, and then click Definition.
Expand the Advanced section, and click Server rendered UI, and then click Save.
Result: You can now build React-based landing pages in the application.
