Reviewing and updating agent associations using node type

Suggest edit Updated on May 20, 2021

In Pega Platform 7.3 and later, all nodes in Pega Cloud Services environments support associating agents with node types. With node classification, agents no longer create or utilize NodeID-based Data-Agent-Queue (DAQ) instances. After Pega Cloud Services finishes upgrading your environment, agents are mapped to the BackgroundProcessing node type by default; previously configured DAQ customizations using NodeId are removed.

At a minimum, you must review your agents and remap them to the appropriate node types and update the node type-based DAQ with any customizations; for details, see Associating agents with node types. It is a best practice to reconfigure Pega agent workloads using a job scheduler or queue processor. For more information, see Configuring resources-use job schedulers and queue processors instead of agents.
