Creating a data type
Use data types to simplify the organization of the information that your application needs to process a case. For example, configure an Onboarding application to provide orientation course suggestions to new hires based on department. In the Onboarding application, a Courses data type might include fields such as Course ID, Course Title, Department, Duration, and Description.
- In the App Studio navigation panel, click Data.
- Under Data, click Data types and integrations.
- Click New.
- In the Data type name field, enter a name for the data type that you want to create.
- In the Define source data section, accept the default settings to connect to Pega database storage.
Note: The default settings connect to Pega database storage immediately. To defer defining a source system, (for example, if your source system is not yet ready) select Later. For more information on defining the source data, see Bringing data into your application.
