Packaging an application for migration

Updated on September 12, 2020

Before you can migrate a new application to a different environment, you must package the relevant data instances and rulesets into a product rule. The product rule is an instance of Rule-Admin-Product, which Pega Platform refers to as the RAP file.

  1. In the header of Dev Studio, click ConfigureApplicationDistributionPackage to start the Application Packaging wizard. For more information about using the wizard, see Product rules.
  2. Complete each page of the Application Packaging wizard.
  3. On the last page of the wizard, click Preview.
  4. Review the contents of the generated RAP file.
  5. If you want to make any changes, on the last page of the wizard, click Modify.
  6. When you have completed your review of the RAP file, click Export.
    Result: The wizard creates a .ZIP file in the ServiceExport directory on the current application server node.
