Packaging an application for migration

Suggest edit Updated on April 23, 2021

Before you migrate a new application to a different environment, package the relevant data instances and rulesets into a product rule. The product rule is an instance of Rule-Admin-Product, which Pega Platform refers to as the RAP file.

Before you begin: If you develop your application features in separate branches, merge the branches. For more information, see Developing applications, merging branches, and deploying changes in a distributed development environment.
  1. In the header of Dev Studio, click ConfigureApplicationDistributionPackage to start the Application Packaging wizard.

    For more information about using the wizard, see Packaging your application in a product rule.
  2. Complete each page of the Application Packaging wizard.

  3. On the last page of the wizard, click Preview.

  4. Review the contents of the generated RAP file.

  5. If you want to make any changes, on the last page of the wizard, click Modify.

  6. When you have completed your review of the RAP file, click Export.

    Result: The wizard creates a .zip file in the ServiceExport directory on the current application server node.
