Move data between data sets on the Pega Platform and initialize new Pega Platform instances by importing data set records that were exported from different Pega Platform data sets. You can import data into data sets that support the Save operation excluding the stream data sets like Facebook, Stream, or YouTube.

  1. Check the size of the import package and the limit for data import into a data set.
    Note: Do not import a package that was not exported from a data set or was manually modified after the export operation. The data.json and the MANIFEST.mf files might be incorrect and cause errors.
  2. Optional: If necessary, change the size limit for data import.
  3. In Dev Studio, click RecordsData ModelData Set and open an instance of the Data Set rule.
  4. Click a data set to which you want to import data.
    The following data set types support import:
    • Database Table
    • Decision Data Store
    • Event Store
    • HBase
    • HDFS
    • Interaction History
    • Visual Business Director
  5. Click ActionsImport.
  6. Choose a .zip file that is a result of the export operation and click Import.
    Note: You should not import a package that was not exported from a data set or was manually modified after the export operation. The data.json and the MANIFEST.mf files might be incorrect and cause errors.
  7. When the import operation is finished, click Done.
