The hybrid mode in Theme Cosmos blends the speed and look of selected section-based capabilities into the existing Pega Platform architecture. By supporting a mixed architecture, the hybrid mode helps you to progressively prepare your application for future changes.
Applications with a traditional architecture support a hybrid design that causes the UI to take on certain Cosmos React functionalities in an otherwise section-based UI. When you enable hybrid mode, most components retain the classic server-side rendering, but portal authoring components and tables use an updated client-side technology.
When creating a new application, you can choose between a traditional, section-based UI architecture or a Cosmos React application. Traditional applications can use hybrid mode, or a standard architecture with sections only. For more guidance on how to choose a UI, see UI version comparison.
For more information on other UI architectures, see Cosmos React.
For Pega Cloud customers, the regional multitenant Constellation UI Service service is automatically configured during Pega Infinity deployment. There is no need for you to install or configure the engine.
For an on-premises or a customer cloud installation, one installation (for example, one pod) can handle static content requests from all Pega Infinity deployments for the organisation.
For more information about the service, see the Constellation UI static content delivery service site for advanced developer documentation.
Enabling hybrid mode
Modernize landing pages in your applications by enabling a hybrid architecture for your application. The React library uses client-side rendering to produce a more efficient and dynamic interface.
- Review the process of implementing the Constellation UI Service on your system. For more information, see Hybrid mode.
- Ensure that Pega Infinity is using a secure HTTPS protocol.
- When you enable React components, security settings change in the background. To improve your application security, you can use only authentication mechanisms with unified authentication scheme (PRAuth). If you want to use the React UI library, a custom authentication scheme is not supported.
- Some browsers might not support React components. For more information about browser compatibility, see Pega Platform Client Operating System and Browser Support.
- In the header of Dev Studio, click the name of the application, and then click Definition.
- Expand the Advanced section, and click Server
rendered UI, and then click Save.
Result: You can now build React-based landing pages in the application. Previous topic Salesforce Lightning Integration Next topic Configuring Docker authentication
