Creating database data instances

Suggest edit Updated on May 11, 2022

Create a database data instance so that Pega Platform can access a database in addition to PegaRULES and PegaDATA. To improve performance, you can create Pega classes and data types in a separate database, or use a separate database for Prediction Studio or for running reports. You can also create a database instance to access an external database.

Before you begin: The database for the data instance that you are creating must exist and must be accessible by JDBC, JNDI, or prconfig.xml, or be a Couchbase or Cassandra database that has accessible clusters and hosts.
