Generate documents in the background

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

When you generate system documentation by using the Document Application wizard (Designer Studio > Application > Tools > Document), the process now runs on a server and not on your local client system. This change not only generates your document more quickly, but also allows you to multi-task within Pega 7 while your document is generating in the background. When the generation is completed, download the document to your computer.

For more information, see:

Updating customized Application Document templates with server-side document generation

Screenshot generation still runs on local client

Screenshot generation runs on local client

Warning message when opening server-generated documents

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

Depending on your system configuration, the following warning message might be displayed when you open a document that was generated on the server.

Link URLs to applications, requirements, and specifications

Valid from Pega Version 7.1.8

In addition to files, you can now attach URLs to applications, requirements, and specifications by using the Add/Edit Attachment modal dialog box in Pega 7. This change allows you to link directly to dynamic content in other URL-based systems rather than link to a static file of that content.

Generate an XSD file for XML format output

Valid from Pega Version 7.3.1

You can now use Business Intelligence Exchange (BIX) to generate an XSD file for existing XML output when the Get all properties check box is selected on the Definition tab of the Extract rule form. You can now validate the XML output and generate DDL statements by using the generated XSD file. Some tags might not be included in the generated XSD file because of missing values in the XML output.

For more information, see Generating an XSD file for XML output.

Project sizing supports real-time feedback

Valid from Pega Version 7.3.1

You can now size a project based on the stories that you create in the Agile Workbench tool. By capturing feedback from your stakeholders in stories, you can improve the accuracy of your estimated timeline and costs in real time.
For more information about project sizing, see Sizing an application development project.

Improved usability for feature management

Valid from Pega Version 7.3.1

You can now manage your features more effectively by implementing the following changes in your application:

  • Move features to different levels to change the structure of your feature hierarchy.
  • Provide descriptions that are longer than 256 characters to improve the readability of features.
  • Quickly remove irrelevant features without having to manage dependencies on built-on applications or previous application versions.
  • Consolidate features into one application layer when you are ready to ship your application.

For more information about feature management, see Managing the features in your application.

Real-time statistics added to application overviews

Valid from Pega Version 7.3.1

You can now use the Application Overview landing page to get information about the number, type, and status of work items that are associated with your features. By referring to the statistics and progress bars that update as your team creates and resolves work items, you can track feature development in real time without interrupting your development team for status updates.

For more information, see Real-time statistics for feature development.

Agile Workbench supports bulk actions

Valid from Pega Version 7.3.1

You can now create stories in bulk by importing a story template to Agile Workbench. By defining stories in bulk before you start development, you can size your project more quickly.

For more information, see Bulk actions in Agile Workbench.

Guided tours and online help added to application guides

Valid from Pega Version 7.3.1

You can now create application guides that display content from a Pega® Platform help topic or a sequence of tour stops in a guided tour. By providing supporting information in an interactive format, you can help users complete tasks more quickly.

For more information about displaying help topics, tour stops, and other types of information in a task, see Interactive tasks in an application guide.
