Scenario

U+ Bank uses Pega Customer Decision Hub™ to present personalized credit card offers to customers on its website. The system architects have set up the Customer Profile Designer Accelerator component and completed the integration of the U+ Bank website with the clickstream service. As a decisioning architect, you want to add two new attributes to the financial clickstream summary. The first attribute calculates the average time customer spent on the account overview page in the last week. The second attribute captures the last page that the customer visited.

Use the following credentials to log in to the exercise system:

Role User name Password
System architect SystemArchitect rules
Decisioning architect DecisioningArchitect rules

Your assignment consists of the following tasks:

Task 1: Browse the clickstream data generated from the U+ Bank website

Log in to the U+ Bank website as Troy to generate clickstream data for the Account overview page. The financial clickstream summary uses the clickstream data set as its source. As a system architect, browse the clickstream data set in Dev Studio to analyze the generated data for the account overview page and get a deeper understanding of the JSON payload.

Task 2: Add new attributes to the financial clickstream summary

Use the Profile Data Sources landing page to add two new summary attributes to the financial clickstream summary. The Avg Active Secs Account 7 Days attribute calculates the average time customers spent on the account overview page in the last 7 days. The Last Visited Page attribute stores the name of the page last visited by the customer on the U+ Bank website.

Tip: Avg Active Secs Account 7 Days – Calculate the average PageViewActiveTime in the last week when the event is PageView and page type is Account.
Last Visited Page – Store the value of the last page type when the event is PageView.

Task 3: Confirm that the new aggregates are populated

Log in to the U+ Bank website to generate some clickstream data. Then, browse the financial services clickstream summary records to confirm that new attributes are populated.
