Configuring job application case types

Updated on January 18, 2021

Capture the personal details of applicants that are relevant for you, such as previous experience, by creating and configuring a job application case type.

This procedure explores the usage of application components in the configuration of case types in Pega Express. The job application case type serves as an example.

  1. Browse the list of application components.

    See The components of Pega Government Platform.

  2. In Dev Studio, in the Cases explorer, click New.

  3. In the Create case type field, enter a name for the new case type and click Finish.

    For example, enter Job application.

  4. Configure a stage that captures applicant details by applying application components.

    1. Capture personal details by applying one of the following rules:

      • To capture data without saving it, use the PersonInformation flow action.
      • To capture data and save it when an applicant submits the form, use the PersonInformation flow.
    2. Make similar selections for capturing other types of details, such as education and experience.

    For more information about case life cycles and stages, see Defining the case life cycle.

  5. Configure a stage that evaluates the application by performing the following actions:

    1. Make sure that evaluation criteria are set.

      You can use the PGP explorer to access and set evaluation criteria.

    2. Apply the Evaluate flow as the first step of the stage.

    3. Set the Evaluate type to Job application and then set the routing.

    4. Apply the PersistPerson flow as the next step of the stage and then set the EntityPage parameter to .Person.

      By using PersistPerson before the remaining flows, you make sure that the person IDs are generated.

    5. Apply the following flows as the remaining steps of the stage and then set their EntityPage parameters to .Person.pyID.

  6. Save the case type.
