Adding Administration landing page to an application

Updated on May 31, 2022
Applicable to Theme Cosmos applications

To ensure that application administrators can edit values in configurations at run time, add the Administration landing page to an end user portal of your application. As a result, you provide no-code tools that users can apply at run time to adjust the application to dynamically changing business circumstances.

For example, at run time, users can hide or display various UI elements in the application, such as currency rates or financial forecasts, without logging in to any design-time portal.
Before you begin: Create configurations that define how your application works at run time. For more information, see Creating configurations.
  1. In Dev Studio, mark the pxAdministration harness as a relevant record.
    For more information, see Marking a record as relevant.
  2. Add the Administration landing page to your application:
    • If you build a Cosmos React application, add the landing page to your portal.

      For more information, see Organizing the main navigation for a portal.

    • If you build a standard Pega Platform application, add the pxAdministration harness to your application.

      For more information, see Harnesses.

Result: Your application includes the Administration landing page that users can edit at run time to change the application behavior. The following image shows a configuration set with editable fields:

On the Administration landing page, users can also get a holistic view of all configurations in the application, check default and current values for configurations, and override configuration values:
