Beginner Pega Customer Decision Hub 8.7 English

Scenario

The infrastructure team at U+ Bank is now ready to test the integration between the U+ website and Pega Customer Decision Hub™.

To prepare, you have already created the action, and a real-time container is available after the Customer Decision Hub Setup Wizard was executed.

You now need to make the remaining configurations in Customer Decision Hub to present the first offer, the Standard credit card offer, to customers who log in to the website.

The creative department has designed an image to promote the Standard card action. The image will be displayed when customers log in to their accounts page on the U+ Bank website. All images are sourced from a content management server.

The web design team agrees that the treatment, which represents the offer image, must be tagged with the metadata, such as placement type, format, and language, necessary for the web UI to display it properly on the accounts page. Most importantly, the treatment must be tagged as a tile.

A link must be displayed below the offer image, which when customers click it redirects the customer to a Credit Cards landing page. The URL of the Credit Cards landing page needs to be part of the treatment metadata.

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

Note: For the Click-throughXXXX is the value specific to your exercise environment. You can copy it from the URL in your browser.

  • Language: English

Task 2: Review the Next-Best-Action Designer settings

Review the settings for Next-Best-Action Designer to ensure the web channel is enabled and the real-time container is configured.

Task 3: Verify the offer on the U+ Bank website

Verify that when customers Troy and Barbara log in to the U+ Bank website, they both see the Standard card offer. Also, verify that the click-through link takes them to the Credit Cards landing page.
