Updating your data model

Updated on November 23, 2022

Maintain data integrity by updating your data model when changes occur.

Use the following techniques to update your data model resources:
  • Renaming a data object

    Rename a data object to align its purpose with the label that users see in your data model.

  • Changing the type of a field

    To store data in a different format, change the type of a field.

  • Deleting a data object

    Remove data objects from your data model that are no longer relevant.

  • Adding records to a data object

    Define the data to populate the fields in a data object by adding a record.

  • Deleting data records in bulk

    To remove data records more quickly, make your changes in bulk by importing a .csv file.

  • Managing your data model through SQL

    Insert, update, and delete records through activities that use ExecuteRDB SQL API. The ExecuteRDB SQL API directly inserts records in your database without requiring you to create a data object in Pega Platform.

  • Managing the database by using data types

    Add database columns and change the database column length by using the Data Type explorer in Dev Studio and the Integration Designer in App Studio. By updating the Pega Platform database through Data Types, you can use the same functionality as by updating your database directly. Updating your database through data types gives Pega Cloud clients another option to manage their database.
