To run simulations of your strategies and to gather monitoring data, create data sets that provide mock data for these tests.
Test your strategies by using such data sets as Interaction History summary, Monte Carlo, and Visual Business Director.
- Creating an interaction history summary data set
Simplify decision strategies by creating data set records for interaction history summaries. These data sets aggregate interaction history to limit and refine the data that strategies process.
- Creating a Monte Carlo data set record
You must configure each instance of the Monte Carlo data set rule before it can generate the mock data that you need.
- Creating a Visual Business Director data set record
Store data records in the Visual Business Director data set to view them in the Visual Business Director (VBD) planner and assess the success of your business strategy. Before you can use this data set for storing and visualization, you must configure it.
- Synchronizing the Actuals data set
The Actuals data set contains Interaction History (IH) records after you synchronize it with the Interaction History database. You synchronize Actuals one time after upgrading Pega Platform from version earlier than 7.3. You might need to synchronize Actuals when you have cleaned up IH database tables by deleting records older than a given time stamp.
