Constellation service, deployment, and network configuration

Constellation requires a static content microservice that delivers content to the browser. This approach improves overall application performance.

However, proper operation of the service requires careful configuration of network and deployment settings.

The Constellation service is designed to be deployed once and then serve all of a customer’s Pega Infinity environments, from desktop to development and production. Although it can be installed for local desktop development, the best practice is to install once, and then make the service available to all. For Pega Cloud services customers, Pega Infinity environments are automatically set up to use the regional Constellation service.

Local deployment

The developer works with a local Pega Infinity environment on a desktop computer, and installs a local Constellation service. The developer launches the browser from the same computer that hosts Constellation. This deployment most likely uses the Docker image. Some knowledge of Docker is required.

The following table lists the default URLs for a local deployment:

ServiceURL
ConstellationSvcURL DSShttps://localhost:xxx/yyyyy
Login pagehttps://localhost:1080/prweb/zzzzzz

Recommended deployment

In any other deployment, the browser, the Pega Infinity server, and the Constellation service are not on the local computer. This deployment most likely uses the Kubernetes template and Helm chart. Som knowledge of Docker, Kubernetes, and Helm is required.

The following table lists the URLs for non-local deployments:

ServiceURL
ConstellationSvcURL DSSDomain and path to the Constellation service
Login pageDomain and path to the Pega Infinity server
