Completing the prerequisite tasks

Updated on January 18, 2022

Before you install your application, ensure that you complete all of the following tasks.

  1. Review the database policies and application permissions that are used by your Pega Platform installation. Determine whether the application is permitted to update the database automatically or if you must generate the database scripts that your organization will use to manually make schema changes.
  2. Install the latest available release of Pega Platform 8.7, and ensure that you can log in as an administrator. For more information, see the Pega Platform Install Guide for your environment on the Deploy Pega Platform page.
    Patch releases are available through Pega’s standard software delivery process. You can request software through Pega Software Distribution or by contacting GCS.
    Note: If you are using Db2 9.7 or later, enable the Automatic REORG setting as described in the documentation provided with your database system. Set each of the following configuration parameters to ON: auto_maint, auto_tbl_maint, and auto_reorg.
