Adopting Pega Care Management version 8.7 features

Updated on December 15, 2021

After you update Pega Care Management to version 8.7, complete these tasks to adopt the features included in the new release.

Enabling rule and data instance indexing

With indexing, the sample application can access data instances faster. Run this process if you installed the sample application.

Before you begin: Perform the task in Enabling custom search properties for indexing.
  1. In the header of Dev Studio, click ConfigureSystemSettingsSearch.
  2. On the System: Settings page, click Enable search indexing to enable it.
  3. On the System: Settings page, select the All data check box, and then click Re-Index.
    1. In the Re-Indexing window, click Only Classes Listed Below.
    2. In the List of work classes list, enter and select the following data classes:
      • PegaHealth-Codes-Data-CPT
      • PegaHealth-Codes-Data-Diagnosis-ICD9
      • PegaHealth-Codes-Data-Diagnosis-ICD10
      • PegaHealth-Codes-Data-DSM
      • PegaHealth-Codes-Data-HCPCS
      • PegaHealth-Codes-Data-LOINC
      • PegaHC-Data-LoincUnits
      • PegaHealth-Codes-Data-NDC-Package
      • PegaHealth-Codes-Data-NDC-Product
      • PegaHealth-Codes-Data-Procedure-ICD9
      • PegaHealth-Codes-Data-Procedure-ICD10
      • PegaHealth-Codes-Data-Revenue
      • PegaHC-Data-ObservationMapping
      • PegaHC-Data-Party-Member
    3. Click OK to start the re-indexing process.

Optional: Updating auto-generated tables in the implementation layer

Due to the schema changes in the application, you need to update the auto-generated tables in your implementation layer. When you update, the implementation layer was generated on the previous version of Pega Care Management. You want to update your implementation layer to take advantage of the Pega Care Management version 8.5 schema changes. Therefore, update the auto-generated tables in your implementation layer.

  1. In the header of Dev Studio, click ConfigureSystemReleaseUpgradeUpgrade Applications Schema.
  2. On the System: Upgrade page, click Upgrade Auto Generated Tables to expand it.
  3. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click View and Download Schema to review the schema changes.
  4. Click Apply Schema to apply the schema changes in the implementation-layer tables.

Setting the version number of your built-on application

Based on the type of update, you might need to set the version number of your built-on application. If you are performing a major update, for example, you are updating from version 7.x to version 8.x, set the version number of your built-on application so that you can use the latest features in Pega Care Management.

  1. In the header of Dev Studio, click ApplicationDefinition.
  2. In the Built on applications section, change the value in the Version field to the number of the updated version.
    For example: 8
  3. Click Save.
