Create or update data source rules

Updated on September 25, 2019
This article applies to users who are upgrading to Pega Customer Service from Customer Process Manager (CPM) 6.2 and prior versions.

Pega Customer Service Data Source rules include defining dialog properties, portal search parameters and composite parameters for tabbed navigation.

If your implementation uses dialog management functions or uses the tabbed navigation method, you must update your data source rule instances by completing the following steps:

  1. Access the Customer Service Data Sources landing page by clicking Designer Studio > Customer Service > Customer Data Management > Customer Service Data Sources.
    Data Sources tab on the Customer Service Data Sources form
  2. Click the Data Source name in this list to be redirected to the rule form.
  3. Update the Composite Data Source? and Dialog Data Source? fields for your implementation.
    The Composite Data Source and Dialog Data Source check boxes
    Composite Data Source and Show News Feed configurations are not applicable for Interaction Portal.
  4. As a best practice, because Data Sources defined in the PegaCA-Dialog class are deprecated, properties defined on Data Source rules in the Dialog class should be copied over to the property list on the Data Source rule for that data class (for example: PegaCA-Work).
