Upgrading User Interface from PEGA 5.5 to PEGA 7.1.7

Hello,


We are planning to upgrade PEGA 5.5 application to PEGA 7.1.7 and I am working primarily on upgrading different user interface elements to leverage the new PEGA 7.1.7 features. We grouped user interface elements that needs to be upgraded into following categories. I have some questions on how to automate some of these UI upgrade process.

Hello,

We are planning to upgrade PEGA 5.5 application to PEGA 7.1.7 and I am working primarily on upgrading different user interface elements to leverage the new PEGA 7.1.7 features. We grouped user interface elements that needs to be upgraded into following categories. I have some questions on how to automate some of these UI upgrade process.

  1. Section Rules : Section contains different items that needs be upgraded and I think we need different strategies for different items. We have lot of section rules and we are trying to identify how can we automate some of these manual processes.
    • Inline CSS - Inline CSS needs to moved to the appropriate component in the PEGA 7 skin manually and I think it's very difficult to automate this process and it has be manual, is that correct?
    • Deprecated Controls - We are using OOB Activity to upgrade standard controls and for some custom controls we are creating a data transform rule to copy all the deprecated control parameter values to new PEGA 7 control parameters.
    • Old Layout formats - Is there anyway we can convert old layout formats ( Free form, Smart) into PEGA 7 Dynamic Layouts Programmatically?
  2. Flow Action Rules : We are using pxShowBulkFlowActionDisplay activity to upgrade most of the old flow actions. This Activity creates a section with the same name and links the section to the flow action.

Any feedback/inputs are appreciated.

Thanks
Narendra
