Getting Started with Pega Cloud Services

Suggest edit Updated on December 1, 2021

Congratulations! You have received your new Pega Cloud services environments, and are ready to run and manage your Pega applications.

Pega Cloud services provisioned your s and environments (Dev/test, Staging, or Production) and installed all of your required software as outlined in your agreement.

While it is ready for your use, there are required setup steps that only you can complete, such as entering in your user information. This article provides a path to use to complete the various setup steps required or recommended after your organization signs a Pega Cloud services contract.

  1. Defining your support contact roles

    As part of the sales process, you define your Pega Cloud services support contact roles. Use the information here if you still need to define the roles or now need to change them.

  2. Completing your environment connectivity

    Establish direct networking connections and perform other network engineering tasks to complete your network connectivity to your application running in your Pega Cloud environment. Proper connectivity ensures that users in your organization can access applications and integration services deployed in Pega Cloud through a secure networking model.

  3. Accessing your environment

    When your Pega Cloud environment is ready, you receive one or more New System Release Notification emails with information about your system. Use this information to help you gain access to your Pega Cloud environment.

  4. Specifying your maintenance window

    Pega Cloud establishes a default maintenance window to update and maintain the system. At this point, determine whether you want to change the default.

  5. Developing your application

    As a Pega Cloud services client, you do not need to worry about installing, patching, or updating Pega software since Pega Cloud services takes care of that for you. After you receive your credentials and can log in, you should review the appropriate Pega application Implementation Guides in order to develop your applications, include any client-managed, post-installation steps your application may require.
