Configuring a repository for package data

Suggest edit Updated on October 7, 2021

Comply with your data storage policy by configuring Pega Robot Manager to run a repository for package binary files.

As a system administrator or developer, connect your application to a repository for hosting automation package binaries. Then, configure Robot Manager to point to that repository by specializing an instance of the pyPackageBinariesRepository rule in your application layer.
Before you begin: Create an instance of a Repository rule that points to the file storage system in which you want to store automation package binaries. For more information, see Creating a repository.

For example, to make your solution compatible with the cloud, you can configure a JFrog repository to store your package data.

  1. In Dev Studio, click RecordsSysAdminApplication Settings.
  2. Select the pyPackageBinariesRepository application settings rule, as shown in the following example:
    Accessing the pyPackageBinariesRepository rule
  3. Specialize the rule in your application layer:
    1. Click Save As.
    2. In the Context section, specify the owning ruleset.
    3. Click Create and open.
  4. In the Value per production level section, populate a Production Level field with the name of the remote repository for storing automation package binaries, as shown in the following example:
    Connecting Pega Robot Manager to a reposiory for automation package binaries
    Connecting Pega Robot Manager to a reposiory for automation package
                                binaries
  5. Confirm your settings by clicking Save.
  6. In the RuntimeConfig.xml file, set the UseRobotManagerPackageServer attribute to true, as shown in the following example:
    See the following example for reference:
    Configuring Pega Robot Manager to control the automation package repository
    Updating the RuntimeConfig.xml file so that it points to the new
                                package repository
