Pega Community logo

Note: The following content, referenced from Pega Community, is included here to help you better achieve the module learning objectives.

Provide more advanced and varied solutions in your application by enhancing application features with subfeatures. Create a subfeature to define a capability that extends another capability.

For example, you can create a feature that describes reporting and monitoring, and then extend that feature with subfeatures for business reporting and analytics monitoring.
Before you begin: Create a main feature that you want to expand. For more information, see Creating features.
  1. In the navigation pane of App Studio, click Overview.

  2. In the Application profile section, click Manage.

  3. In the Application profile workspace, click the Feature map tab.

  4. In the Features section, click the name of the feature that you want to supplement with a subfeature.

  5. In the Subfeatures section, click the Create icon.

  6. In the Name field, enter text that uniquely identifies the subfeature.

  7. In the Description field, enter text that describes the business value for this subfeature and provides an overview of what users can do when the development team implements this subfeature.

  8. Click Create.

Note: Extend the subfeature with additional capabilities by creating additional nested subfeatures. You can create four levels of subfeatures.

  • Creating features

    Ensure that your application supports capabilities that meet your specific business needs and customer expectations, by creating features. When you create features, you communicate what elements your development team needs to implement to deliver a complete application, so that you can appropriately plan your work and inform stakeholders about your application design.

  • Estimating application development

    For more accurate project planning and enhanced communication with your stakeholders, create application development time estimates. When you estimate the duration of your project, you clearly state how much time and effort your development team needs to deliver an application that reflects its specific design and required elements.

  • Deleting a feature

    Delete features when they are unused or no longer relevant.
