The unversioned propositions that are listed on the Unversioned proposition data tab on the Proposition Management landing page are data instances of the group data class.
Unversioned proposition offer a flexible mechanism for the type of input values that require frequent changes without having to adjust the strategy. Changes to the values of data instances become directly available when you update the instance. These records can be a simple list of values (typically, this is the case with global decision parameters), or a set of values that are available in a specific context (for example, proposition parameters and channel centric parameters).
Unversioned propositions are used in strategies through the decision parameters component. Their values are typically defined by business users in the Decision Manager portal, but this functionality is not limited to the portal and can be used in Dev Studio as well.
- Adding an unversioned proposition
Follow these steps to create propositions that are stored in the system as data instances. In Pega decision management, a proposition is anything that can be offered to a customer. This can include things like advertisements, products, offer bundles, or service actions. Whatever is presented to the customer as the Next-Best-Action is called a proposition.
- Duplicating an unversioned proposition
Duplicate a proposition in a group stored as data instance and create a new proposition based on its details.
- Editing an unversioned proposition
Edit a proposition in a group stored as data instance to modify offers presented to customers.
- Editing unversioned propositions in bulk
To facilitate proposition management, you can edit unversioned propositions in bulk either in the data type editor or through the Excel export and import.
- Defining the validity period for unversioned propositions
You can define or edit the validity period of unversioned propositions. The validity period defines the life span of a proposition, that is, the time period during which that proposition is active.
- Converting groups with unversioned propositions
Convert the groups that contain unversioned propositions into decision data records. This way propositions are managed through the decision data record and they are available for revision management.
