Service File rules - Completing the Create, Save As, or Specialization form

Updated on April 6, 2022

Create a Service File rule by selecting Service File from the Integration-Services category.

Note: Create a Service Package data instance before creating a Service File rule.

A Service File rule has three key parts. The class and method name key parts of the Service File rule are considered "external" and unrelated to Pega Platform class and methods, for flexibility.

Customer Package Name

Select the name of the service package; this package name groups related Service File rules. Choose a name already defined through a Service Package data instance. See About Service Package data instances.

Customer Class Name Enter a class name to logically group related methods. This name may or may not refer to the Pega Platform class that the activity belongs to, but must be a valid Java identifier. See How to enter a Java identifier.
Identifier Enter an identifier that describes the Pega Platform activity being called by the service.
Note: Each File Listener instance references a single Service File rule, not a group of rules as in other services.
