A new property, pxCommitDateTime, records the time when a record or updated rule was committed to the database. This property also allows for incremental extracts when running BIX.
New property pxSaveDateTime
Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8
A new property, pxSaveDateTime, records the date and the time that an instance was saved with business changes to the database. This property is always used when an instance is saved, whether you are creating an instance or updating an existing instance. This property is not updated when an instance is moved from one system to another, and it is not updated during certain system management operations that do not change the content of the instance, such as column exposure.
Ability to include all properties in search results
Valid from Pega Version 7.4
You can now include all properties in a class in search results so that they can be used in report filtering. When the Enable search results for all properties option is selected on the Custom Search Properties rule form, all top level and embedded page scalar properties for the class are indexed and returned in search results, and all embedded page list, page group, value list, and value group properties for the class are indexed but not returned in search results. Selecting this option might affect performance.
In addition, by default, properties defined in the Data-Tag-RelevantRecord instance for a class are indexed and returned in search results and do not need to be explicitly configured.
You must reindex search after selecting or clearing Enable search results for all properties and after changing the properties that are defined in the Data-Tag-RelevantRecord instance.
You can now use a compact style sheet when you create PDF files by using the Create PDF smart shape in a case type or when you use the HTMLtoPDF activity. This style sheet overrides the style sheet that is used by the harness skin and correctly renders certain elements such as headings and inline grid tables. It also renders PDF files more quickly.
