Pega Platform includes various utilities to streamline system management activities.
- Importing the legacy ruleset from the Resource Kit
Applications that require deprecated rules that are no longer included in the Pega Platform distribution need to import those legacy rules from the Resource Kit.
- Comparing versions of a rule
To quickly find additions, changes, or deletions between rules, use the Rule Compare utility or the History tab to compare two different instances of rules, two different rules, or two versions of the same rule.
- Renaming classes or rulesets during an archive import
Use the Refactor on Import wizard to rename classes or rulesets in an archive as it is imported. This allows you to integrate the imported structure into the existing hierarchy on your system. The Refactor on Import wizard supports merging RuleSets developed by Pegasystems or others into your PegaRULES database.
- Replacing a string in rulesets
Use the Search/Replace a String wizard to search for and replace a string wherever it appears in rules in the entire PegaRULES database.
- Purging and archiving old work items
In a production application, work item data volume can grow to a size where hundreds of megabytes of database storage is required. The Purge/Archive wizard enables you to use an agent to automatically delete old work item data from the respective tables or store them in archive files.
