Microsites are listed in the Microsites landing page, which is accessed from the Pega Customer Decision Hub portal via: Content Microsites.

Note: Pega Customer Decision Hub leverages the Pega Platform stage-based Case Management functionality for building Microsites. Refer to official documentation for more details on this functionality.
  • Creating a microsite

    To create a new Microsite, use the Create button on the Microsites landing page.

  • Configuring microsite stages

    Each stage can have one or more steps that it performs. Typical steps for Microsites are provided out-of-the-box and are associated with the default stages, e.g. load data, save site data, progress action, etc.

  • Embedding a microsite link in an email treatment

    You can configure email treatments to provide links to a microsite. The link contains the customer and action context, so that the microsite is customer- and action-aware. Microsites can load customer and action data, display it to the user, save action data if applicable, and progress the action.

  • Launching a microsite

    Microsite can be launched and tested via the following URL: http://<server>:<port>/MS/index.html?Site=<MicrositeName>.

  • Identifying customers who respond to a microsite

    Identity matching also allows marketers to track unidentified customers and their interactions with Microsites. When an anonymous individual visits a Microsite, the system identifies the individual with a unique identifier. Later, when customer information is available to the Microsite, the system associates the anonymous user's interactions with the customer.

  • Managing microsite subscriptions

    Pega Customer Decision Hub provides an out-of-the-box sample implementation of a Microsite that manages a customer’s subscription preferences. This is labeled the Subscription Microsite and its implementation class is PegaMKT-Work-Microsite-Subscription.
