BIX performance improvements for CSV output in the Pega Cloud

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

BIX performance has been enhanced to download up to 25 GB of data per hour for extracts from a BLOB-less class table for CSV output. This high-throughput option is available only for Pega Cloud instances that use a Postgres database. This option is used automatically for these types of extracts.

When this option is used, the –x and –c command-line options for BIX are not supported, and the checkSum field in the manifest summary is not populated. If you need these options, you can revert to the previous implementation by using a setting in the prconfig.xml file.

For more information, see BIX high-throughput data downloads in the Pega Cloud.

Design templates in Pega Express

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

You can now use design templates to control the layout of form fields in Pega Express. Use the form builder Layouts tab to select a layout for the form and organize the fields in the layout regions.

For more information, see Adding a design template to a form in Pega Express.

Configure additional email accounts for Pulse notifications

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

You can now configure individual email accounts for each application for which you want to send Pulse email notifications. For example, you can configure a specific email account to send Pulse notifications for an HR Services application, a Release Management application, and so on.

For more information, see Configuring Pulse notifications on additional email accounts

  • In Designer Studio, you can add or remove the fields that are displayed in the approval email by customizing the associated Review view.
  • In Case Designer, you can now quickly enable email approval when you click an approval step and route it to another user without having to switch to Process Modeler if you are working Designer Studio or switching to Designer Studio if you are working in express mode.
  • Recipients of email approvals can quickly open cases by clicking the links to the related cases that are provided in the emails.

For more information, see Email approval enhancements in a case type.

Approval emails now contain links to cases

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

Emails that you receive to reject or accept a task in a case now contain a link to the case. You can click this link to quickly open a case for which you receive approval emails.

Email approval and instantiation not supported on multitenant systems

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

The Enable email approval check box appears on the General tab of an approval step in Case Designer in multitenant systems. It also appears on the Approval shape in Designer Studio. In addition, in Designer Studio, the Settings tab in Case Designer displays the option to configure email instantiation. However, because configuring email listeners is not supported on multitenant systems, you cannot enable email approval or email instantiation.

Text area field supports rich text

Valid from Pega Version 7.2.1

You can now configure a text area field on a form to collect plain or rich text from users at run time. By customizing the way that users provide information, you can create cases that display data in different formats and styles.

For more information about the supported options for text area fields, see:
