Moving applications between systems

Suggest edit Updated on May 11, 2022

You can migrate rules and data between instances of Pega Platform by using interactive tools in Dev Studio or by using command-line tools. You can develop rules on one system and deploy them on other systems. As a best practice, use Deployment Manager to promote applications.

Check this list of available tools and supported operations to choose the appropriate tool for your purpose.
