Editable list of build-on application features

Valid from Pega Version 8.4

Pega Platform™ now provides you with an option to edit the list of features in your application stack. Now you can define the order of the features to generate application documentation that lists the features by their priorities instead of the time of creation. For example, you can reorder the features when you want to communicate to your stakeholders which elements are top priorities.

For more information, see Learning about feature order.

Anypicker control in a condition builder

Valid from Pega Version 8.4

The condition builder now uses the Anypicker control to categorize the entities, such as fields or when conditions, that your application compares at run time. As a result, you can create conditions in a simplified and accelerated way. You can also select fields that are up to four levels deep within field groups.

Check out rules with errors

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.6

You can now check out rules with validation errors. This is helpful when a checked-in version becomes invalidated by changes elsewhere in the application, such as a modified ruleset pre-requisite or a deleted referencing rule.

 If you enter invalid values in rule form fields and then click Check out, the valid, base version of the rule is checked out. Be sure to resolve all errors and save before refreshing.  Otherwise, your changes are lost.
