Editing Runtime configuration files

Updated on January 31, 2022

You can edit Runtime configuration files in the xml-aware editor available in Pega Robot Manager. Pega Robot Manager also provides version control mechanisms and a smart lock feature.

When you start editing a Runtime configuration file, you acquire a lock on the file, which prevents other users from saving changes to the file you are currently editing. Pega Robot Manager has a smart locking feature that prolongs your lock if no other user makes changes to the same file.

If your lock expires and another user saves changes to the same file (while you are still in the editor), a notification appears. To keep your changes, you can then copy and paste the content that you entered in the editor to a file on your local computer.

  1. Log in to your application built on Pega Robot Manager with administrative privileges.
  2. From the Pega Robot Manager dashboard, click Settings.
  3. In the Settings page, select the Runtime configs tab.
  4. Click the name of the file that you want edit.
  5. Perform one or more of the following actions:
    • To replace the entire content of the current file with another file's content, click ActionsReplace XML content and upload a local file.
    • To edit the file within Pega Robot Manager, click Edit and introduce your changes.
    • To edit the file offline, select Download XML and save it to you local drive. Then, introduce the changes, and upload the updated file by selecting ActionsReplace XML content.
    • To check if your .xml file is well-formed, click Validate.
  6. Save your changes:
    1. To save changes to the same file, click Save.
    2. To create a new file with the current xml content, click ActionsSave As and enter the new file name.
      Note: You cannot create different files with the same name within one application nor use Master runtime config settings v8.5.1 as the file name.
