This release contains fixes related to clipboard and declarative features, including data pages and autopopulate.
A rule may be changed using Private Checkout, and then checked into a higher RuleSet Version for that RuleSet.
Agents may now use a 24-hour time period for scheduling, as well as a 12-hour time period (which required the selection of AM or PM).
Caching and performance have been enhanced.
Declare expressions will work with embedded page lists when creating forms.
Mandatory parameters on a data page can handle blank values.
Properties may be auto-populated using a reference property which is created with a Property-Ref method in an activity.
System will use "private edit" rules in developer's personal RuleSet when that rule overrides the "standard" rule available to all.
The Page-Remove method will now remove Data Pages at the Thread level and the Requestor Level.
When copying a page using the "Set" action on a data transform, the Declare Indexes defined on that data will be updated.
When creating a data page, the Reload Once per Interaction checkbox can be checked to set the refresh strategy.
Valid from Pega Version 7.1.4
Many refinements to the Designer Studio were made around performance and user experience. Based on feedback, we have made a number of bug fixes and strategic improvements that improve the overall user experience.
The Developer Portal connects to the PDN's RSS feed without needing a DigiCert certificate for validation. The RSS feed is just headlines; to open and read any of the articles, users will still have to log into the PDN.
Expression Builder has been enhanced to work with IE8.
New applications built in Version 7.1 will automatically redirect users to the PRPC login page upon logout. A new template has been added, to allow developers to customize their applications to redirect users to a logout page, if they wish.
Performance improvements were made when saving and validating rules.
Performance of the Guardrails Dashboard has been improved.
The display of circumstanced rules in Application Explorer has been enhanced.
Valid from Pega Version 7.1.3
Numerous usability improvements were made for this release. A group of cosmetic, functional, and performance enhancements were also included.
Treegrid controls work more quickly in IE9 and IE10.
On application ruleforms, the 5.4 "Place Properties on Thread Page" checkbox will work in 7.1.
Message error handling has been improved.
Log messages have been cleaned up.
Connectors may now be used in Data Pages.
Move Rules wizard has been enhanced to work in Version 7.1.
Automated Unit Testing (AUT) content removed from the help
Valid from Pega Version 7.2.2
Information about Automated Unit Testing (AUT) has been removed from the Pega 7 Platform help, beginning with version 7.2.2. The AUT information is still available in earlier versions of the Pega 7 Platform help and on the PDN in the topic category Testing Applications.
PegaUnit testing is now supported on data pages, activities, data transforms, strategies, decision tables, and decision trees, which you can use to quickly and easily create test cases for your Pega 7 Platform applications instead of using AUT.
Security fields in JFrog Artifactory repository rule form removed
Valid from Pega Version 8.1
The fields in the Security section of the JFrog Artifactory repository rule form, including the Secure protocol field, the Truststore field, and the Keystore field, were not functional in Pega Platform™ 7.3, 7.3.1, and 7.4. This section has been removed from the JFrog Artifactory repository rule form in Pega Platform 8.1.
All Pega product release notes can be found on their product pages.
