Creating a repository

Updated on November 23, 2022

Create connections between Pega Platform and repositories to provide centralized storage, versioning, and metadata support for file storage and knowledge management, for example, to store and source file attachments in cases, or for use in DevOps.

Pega Cloud Services environments do not support adding local file system repositories. Instead, client applications running in Pega Cloud Services environments use a default S3 repository that is preconfigured and optimized for Pega Cloud environments. This repository appears as pegacloudfilestorage in your list of repositories in RecordsSysAdminRepository in Dev Studio. For details, see Pega Cloud Services File Storage.Note: To create a repository, your access group must have the PegaRULES:RepositoryAdministrator role. To use a repository, your access group must have the PegaRULES:RepositoryUser role.

The information you enter when you create the connection determines the file specification, also referred to as a file spec. A file spec is an alias, that is, a way to reference file locations that is independent of the physical file storage. A file spec is resolved based on configured file storage, such as a repository.

  • Adding a Microsoft Azure repository

    Add an Azure repository to provide centralized storage, versioning, and metadata support for file storage and knowledge management, for example, to store and source file attachments in cases.

  • Adding a JFrog repository
