You can now set the status of a case when it enters a stage. By setting the status of a case on stage entry, you can communicate to stakeholders how close a stage is to resolution. For example, if a case is in the approval stage, you can set the status of the case to "Under review" when the case enters the stage.
You can now configure a stage to resolve open child cases when the parent case is resolved. Resolving child cases on the resolution of the parent case ensures that no child cases are left open when the parent case reaches the end of its life cycle.
You can now define a condition in App Studio and build an expression in Dev Studio that causes a case to skip a stage. The system evaluates the condition or expression at run time and skips the stage if a true value is returned. By skipping the current stage when it is not relevant, you can resolve a case more quickly by moving the case to the next stage in the sequence.
You can now define a condition that causes a case to start a process in a stage. When the condition evaluates to false, the case skips the process. You can resolve cases more quickly by moving a case to the next process in the sequence when the current process is not relevant.
You can now define a condition that decides whether an optional task for a case type or a stage is displayed at run time. Optional tasks require additional processing, and by excluding the tasks that are not relevant, you can resolve cases more quickly.
You can now define a condition that causes a case to display a supporting process for the case type or for a stage in the case type. When the condition evaluates to false, the case does not list the process. Supporting processes require additional processing, and by skipping the processes that are not relevant, you can help users resolve cases more quickly.
You can now configure an assignment or approval in a case type to send email notifications to the users associated with the case when the goals and deadlines are not met. You can create the subject and content for the notification message. The system sends email notifications when the suggested and required completion times for an assignment or approval elapse. By notifying relevant users about goals and deadlines, you can ensure that service-level agreements are strictly enforced during case processing.
You can configure remote repositories, such as Amazon S3 or JFrog Artifactory, or a local repository, as data sources for File data sets. By referencing an external repository from a File data set, you enable a parallel load from multiple CSV or JSON files, which removes the need for a relational database for transferring data to Pega Platform™ in the cloud.
Define a taxonomy by using the Prediction Studio interface
Valid from Pega Version 8.1
Create a topic hierarchy and define keywords for each topic in Prediction Studio faster and more intuitively than by editing a CSV file. If you have already defined a taxonomy in a CSV file, you can import that file and modify existing topics and keywords by using the Prediction Studio interface.
