Importing the application bundle

Updated on January 22, 2021

The system data and rulesets for Pega Customer Decision Hub for Communications are loaded during this step.

Note: Starting from version 8.4, PegaMKTComms-Artifacts ruleset is removed from the Pega Customer Decision Hub for Communications application stack. Ensure that any rules present in this ruleset are replaced during upgrade.
  1. Log on to the Pega Platform (https://<hostname>:<port>/prweb) by entering the administrator credentials that you set up when you installed Pega Platform.
  2. To open the Import wizard, in Dev Studio, click ConfigureApplicationDistributionImport.
  3. Click Choose File, browse your distribution media for the Rules\PegaCDHForCommunications.jar file, and then follow the wizard instructions.
    Caution: To ensure that you import all components, clear the Enable advanced mode to provide granular control over the import process check box.
    Important: Before you proceed with the bundle import, make sure that you select the Automatically run Upgrade Application Schema when import is complete check box on the Schema changes page.
    Result: The wizard identifies differences between the database schema of your current system and the schema of Pega Customer Decision Hub for Communications 8.5.
  4. Based on the review of the database policies and application permissions that are used by your Pega Platform upgrade (Prerequisites), perform one of the following steps:
    • Select the Automatic check box and complete the wizard.
    • Select Manual and complete the following steps:
      1. Click View/Download DDL SQL, which produces a text file containing Data Definition Language (DDL) statements for the needed changes.
      2. Save the DDL file and deliver it to a database administrator to make the required changes.

        Depending on your organization’s policies, database administrators might need to review these DDL files to determine what changes will occur prior to applying the DDL to your database.

      3. After the database administrator has applied the DDL, repeat the Import wizard steps.
  5. Optional: For best performance and initial user experience after the upgrade, run the Static Assembler utility to pre-assemble the rules in the application. For more information, see Preassembling rules in an application by using the Static Assembler utility.
