Setting up entity property mapping

Suggest edit Updated on September 7, 2021

To improve the responses that your Pega Email Bot™ provides to emails, you can optionally add entity extraction information for a suggested case. As a result, when a case type is associated with an email that you receive, your email bot extracts entities from email content, and automatically assigns them to a case type property in a Pega Platform application.

For example, for the Car Insurance case, you can map the CarModel and CarMake entities to the .CarModel and .CarMake case properties. When these entities are detected in email, their values are automatically assigned to the case properties.
Before you begin: Set up suggested cases for your email bot. For more information, see Adding suggested cases for an Email channel.

Entities contain proper nouns that fall into a commonly understood category, for example, a person, a location, a date, an organization, or a ZIP code.

  1. In the navigation pane of App Studio, click Channels.
