The following tabs are available on this form:

  • Methods
  • Deployment
Note: The rule type Rule-Connect-BPEL is deprecated. Use Service SOAP rules instead.

The Business Process Execution Language (BPEL) integration interface enables you to define your Pega Platform system as one partner in a BPEL process. The BPEL integration interface is layered on top of the SOAP integration interface. You use SOAP service and connector rules to define the operations and a BPEL service or connector to package them as a BPEL Web service.

  • Package the BPEL Web service as a Connect BPEL rule when your Pega Platform system starts the BPEL process.
  • Package the BPEL Web service as a Service BPEL rule when an external partner starts the BPEL process, sending a request to your Pega Platform system.


Use the Application Explorer or ConfigureIntegrationConnector Definitions & Simulations to list the Connect BPEL rules in your application.

Select ConfigureIntegrationConnectors Connector and Metadata wizard to start the Connector and Metadata wizard to create a Connect BPEL rule.

Use the Records Explorer to list all Connect BPEL rules that are available to you.
