Adding a file system

Suggest edit Updated on January 29, 2021

Add a file system to provide centralized storage, versioning, and metadata support for file storage and knowledge management, for example, to store and source file attachments in cases.

Pega Cloud Services environments do not support adding local file system repositories. Instead, client applications running in Pega Cloud Services environments use a default S3 repository that is preconfigured and optimized for Pega Cloud environments. This repository appears as pegacloudfilestorage in your list of repositories in RecordsSysAdminRepository in Dev Studio. For details, see Pega Cloud Services File Storage.

Note: To create a repository, your access group must have the PegaRULES:RepositoryAdministrator role. To use a repository, your access group must have the PegaRULES:RepositoryUser role.
  1. In the header of Dev Studio, click CreateSysAdminRepository.

  2. Enter a short description of the repository and the repository name and click Create and open.

  3. In the Definition tab, click Select and select the repository type.

  4. In the Resource path field, enter the path under which artifacts are stored on a file system.

    Note: Each node's operating system must detect the resource path in order to import and export artifacts.
  5. Click Test connectivity to verify the credentials.

  6. Click Save.
