Deprecated: External data flows

Suggest edit Updated on March 11, 2021

External data flows are deprecated and no longer officially supported. By default, the user interface elements associated with these rules are hidden. Visibility can be toggled on and off with a dynamic system setting. As a best practice, discontinue the use of this feature in your application.

  • Deprecated: Creating external data flows

    External Data Flow (EDF) is a rule for defining the flow of data on the graphical canvas and executing that flow on an external system. With EDF, you can run predictive analytics models in a Hadoop environment and utilize its infrastructure to process large numbers of records to limit the data transfer between Hadoop and the Pega Platform.

  • Deprecated: Creating an external data flow run

    You can specify where to run external data flows and manage and monitor running them on the External processing tab of the Data Flows landing page. External data flows run in an external environment (data set) that is referenced by a Hadoop record on the Pega Platform platform.

  • Deprecated: External data flow methods

    External data flows can be run, monitored, and managed through a rule-based API. Data-Decision-EDF-RunOptions and Pega-DM-EDF-Work are the container classes for the API rules, and provide the properties required to programmatically configure external data flow runs.
