Building your first application

Updated on November 15, 2021

Create low-code applications in a user-friendly and intuitive way by working with Pega Platform. With various out-of-the-box tools, you can define customer journeys, develop applications, track your progress, and communicate with team members and stakeholders.

To ensure that your application is secure, use the Application Security Checklist. For more information, see Assessing your application using the Security Checklist.

Start building your application by performing the following tasks:

  • Creating applications

    Start developing your projects conveniently and intuitively by building your application on an application template. When you create an application on a template, you save time because you reuse key elements of an existing application, such as case types or data types.

  • Inviting collaborators to your application

    Enhance your application and begin processing your business cases by inviting collaborators with different skills and roles.

  • Setting your application password

    Improve the security of your application by setting a password. When you define a password, you ensure that only appropriate users can manage updates in your application.

  • Configuring applications for reuse

    To save time and immediately start application development, make your application available as a template. When you save your application as a template, other users can quickly build a new application from that sample. The newly created application automatically inherits template logic, data, and personas.

  • Configuring advanced settings for new applications

    To fully benefit from possibilities Pega layer cake provides, configure advanced settings for your application and create organization layers. To save time, reuse common processes within your organization, and to adjust the application to your departmental business needs, allow for greater customization of certain elements.

  • Switching between applications

    When you work on multiple applications, you can switch between them by using the My Applications gadget.

  • Adding built-on applications

    To save time and reduce development costs you can reuse elements between your applications, such as rules and features, by adding built-on applications. When you build your application stack, you ensure that you meet business requirements in an efficient way.
