Improved capability to attach content in offline-enabled applications

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

The feature for attaching content in applications while in offline mode has been enhanced. A list of attached content is displayed in the application while in offline mode. You can view or delete attachments if the application has not yet been synchronized with the server. You also can change the maximum size of a file that you can attach while working in offline mode. This option gives you the flexibility to select the right size of attachment for a specific application for performance, memory limitation, or security reasons.

For more information, see Attach content support in offline mode.

Fingerprint authentication in Pega Mobile Client

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

The authentication feature in Pega Mobile Client has been extended to support user credentials that are secured by a fingerprint reader. The FingerprintAuthenticator object and its methods replace the TouchID API. A compatibility layer has been created to support custom mobile apps that use the deprecated API. This functionality is available on iOS and selected Android devices.

For more information, see Authentication API.

Enhancement to the error and warning handling JavaScript API

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

During offline post processing of a flow in an application, you can now use the ClientCache JavaScript API to handle informational and warning messages in addition to error messages. Several ClientCache API JavaScript functions have been updated for this purpose. Informational, warning, and error messages are displayed when you submit a form, but only error messages prevent you from advancing the case.

For more information, refer to Error and warning handling API in offline mode.

New customization options for paused custom mobile apps on Android

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

You can now customize the presentation of a paused custom mobile app for Android. You can upload a custom status bar icon and customize the title and message that are displayed in the device's notification area. Also, you can use a new optional parameter of the startKeepAlive method of the Pega Mobile Client's Container API as an alternative way of setting the notification title.

For more information, see Customizing the paused Android app notification.

Support for round icons in Android 7.1 mobile apps

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

To improve the look and feel of Android mobile apps, round icons are now supported in apps that are created for Android 7.1. You can add the icons to the assets.zip file during the customization stage when you build the app in the Pega® Platform.

For more information, see Branding mobile apps.

Today widget for iOS custom mobile apps

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

The Pega Mobile Client has been extended to support a Today widget in custom mobile apps for iOS. By default, the Today widget displays the current user's list of work objects. This functionality is available only for offline-enabled custom mobile apps and requires that your certificate set include a widget provisioning file.

For more information, see Configuring a Today widget on iOS.

Validate rule support in offline-enabled applications

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

To enhance the user experience of your offline-enabled application, you can now use validate rules that are referenced by a flow action. You can also explicitly add other types of validate rules as offline-supported. The offline validation API provides two methods that you can use in your custom code to run from a Run script action or a custom JavaScript function. Several JavaScript utility functions, the equivalent of built-in Java functions for Pega® Platform, are now also available.

For more information, see Validate rule support in offline mode and Function rule support in offline mode.

Security enhancements in offline-enabled applications

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

To enhance the security of an offline-enabled application, you can now set the time period during which a user of an offline-enabled application stays logged in before the lock screen is displayed. The password, lockout, audit, and operator disablement security policy settings are supported in offline-enabled applications. For example, if a user enters an incorrect password several times and is locked out of the account, you can specify in minutes for how long the user is prevented from logging back in.

For more information, see Setting maximum login time.

OAuth 2 token support in Pega Mobile Client

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

The Client Store module in Pega Mobile Client has been extended to support OAuth 2 tokens. The tokens are used to authorize data synchronization requests that are sent to the Pega® Platform. Once the OAuth 2 token support is turned on and configured on the server, Pega Mobile Client starts using it automatically. This functionality is available on both iOS and Android devices.

For more information, see Enabling data synchronization with OAuth 2 tokens.

No support for Android versions earlier than 4.4 on mobile devices

Valid from Pega Version 7.3

Pega® Platform dynamic layouts by default now use Flexbox-based rendering. As a result, mobile devices running on Android versions earlier than 4.4 are not supported in Pega Platform. Such devices cannot render correctly with Flexbox because the Pega Mobile Client includes the default stock browser on the Android operating system.

All Pega product release notes can be found on their product pages.
