Understanding rule rebasing

Updated on April 5, 2022

If you are using continuous integration in a CI/CD pipeline with either Deployment Manager or third-party automation servers such as Jenkins, after you merge branches, you can rebase your development application to obtain the most recently committed rulesets. Rebasing allows development teams working in separate development environments to share their changes and keep their local rule bases synchronized. Having the most recently committed rules on your development system decreases the probability of conflicts with other development teams.

For example, you can publish a branch from your development application to a Pega repository on a source development system, which starts a job on Jenkins as your automation server and merges branches. You can also use the Merge branches wizard to start a Deployment Manager build by first merging branches in a distributed or nondistributed, branch-based environment. After the merge is completed, you can rebase the rulesets on your development application to obtain the merged rulesets.

  • Configuring settings for rebasing

    Before you can rebase your development system, you must first configure a Pega repository and then enable ruleset versions for them. You must also have the appropriate permissions for rebasing.

  • Enabling the Pega repository type

    When you use continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD pipelines) third-party automation servers, you use Pega Platform as a binary repository for rule artifacts during development. You also use Pega repositories when you are rebasing your development application when you are using third-party automation servers or Deployment Manager.

  • Enabling ruleset versions for Pega repositories for rebasing

    When you rebase rules, you must enable ruleset versions for Pega repositories so that they can host ruleset versions. To enable ruleset versions, configure the HostedRulesetsList dynamic system setting on the remote development system on which you are merging branches.

  • Rebasing rules to obtain latest versions

    If you are using a continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline with Deployment Manager or third-party auomation servers such as Jenkins, you can rebase your development application to obtain the most recently committed rulesets through Pega repositories after you merge branches on the source development system.
