Applicable to Theme Cosmos applications

Provide users with a clear map of geographical points that are relevant to the cases that they work on. By configuring dynamic system settings with the appropriate Google API key, you prepare an environment in which the Map control and the location field can work correctly.

Before you begin: Prepare and implement the API key:
  • Obtain a Google API key. For more information, see the Get an API Key tutorial from Google.
  • Enable Maps JavaScript and Geocoding APIs in your Google Developer account.
  1. In the navigation pane of Dev Studio, click Records.
  2. Expand the SysAdmin category, and then click Dynamic System Settings.
  3. Open the uiengine/map/googleapikey system setting.
  4. In the Value field, enter the Google API key.
  5. Click Save.
  6. Restart Pega Platform.
What to do next: Add the map control or the location field to the application. For more information, see Configuring the Map control and Creating a location field.
