Before you begin: Ensure that you have completed the prerequisites for this application update.

  2. In the header of Dev Studio, click ConfigureApplicationDistributionImport.
  3. Select the \Rules\PFHC_Core.jar file from your distribution media, and then follow the wizard instructions.
    Rules from the PegaHC-SPM-Foundation ruleset in releases prior to 7.22 are merged with the PegaHC ruleset in 7.22. If you are updating from releases prior to 7.22, when prompted for pre-existing rule conflicts for these two rulesets, select all the check boxes in the Replace column.
  4. For schema changes, depending on your site's requirements, select either Automatic or Manual, and then continue following the wizard instructions.
    If you select Manual, see Viewing and applying schema changes.
  5. When the import is complete, click Done.
  6. Apply the required hotfixes by using Hotfix Manager.
    For more information, see Pega Foundation for Healthcare hotfixes.
