Getting detailed information about a restore point

Suggest edit
Updated on April 5, 2022

Use the prpcServiceUtils tool to display detailed information about a single restore point.

You can view the following information:

  • Rules and data that have been added, deleted, or edited since the restore point. This information includes the creator, label, key, and time stamp for each instance.
  • Link-Requirement, Link-TestCase, and Link-UseCase classes that have been added, deleted, or edited since the restore point.
You must have a running Pega Platform instance to use the prpcServiceUtils tool.

Follow these steps to get detailed restore point information:

  1. Configure the common properties of the prpcServiceUtils.properties file.

    Property name Value
    pega.rest.server.urlThe URL for the REST service, specified in the following format:

    http:// <hostname> : <port> / <context> /PRRestService/

    For example: http://myhost:8080/prweb/PRRestService
    pega.rest.usernameThe operator name on the target system with access to REST services.
    pega.rest.passwordThe password of the specified operator.
    pega.rest.proxy.host

    The host name of the REST proxy server. Do not use localhost as the host name.

    pega.rest.proxy.port

    The port for the REST proxy server.

  2. Configure the restore point action:
    manageRestorePoints.action=get
  3. Enter the restore point name:
    manageRestorePoints.restorePointName=<restore-point-name>
  4. Save and close the prpcServiceUtils.properties file.
  5. Run the prpcServiceUtils.bat or prpcServiceUtils.sh script with the manageRestorePoints option, for example:
