Modifying package details

Updated on December 20, 2022

You can modify the name and description of a package to make it easier to find the package in Pega Robot Manager.

  1. In the navigation pane of Pega Robot Manager, click Packages.
  2. Note: The Packages page lists the packages that are associated with your entire application stack, including packages that are inherited from a built-on application. You can modify only the packages that are directly associated with your current application, but you cannot modify any inherited packages. The system displays an icon to the left of inherited packages, as shown in the following figure:
    Icon identifies package files that are inherited and not editable
    An icon is displayed to the left of several packages in the list, and a key at the bottom explains that the icon means that the package file is inherited from a built-on application.
  3. Optional: To find the package you want more quickly, use one or more of the search fields at the top of the page:
    • To search by package name, in the Search field, enter part or all of the package name. For example, enter credit to find any package name that includes this word.
    • To search for a package by deployment status, such as Custom, Development, or Production, select a status from the Deployment status list.
    • To search by the Robot Runtime version that this package requires, select a version from the Runtime version drop-down list.
  4. Optional: To find a package by applying column-level filters:
    1. In a column heading, click the Filter icon.
    2. Select the filter checkboxes to specify criteria to be matched, or enter text in the Search Text field.
    3. Click Apply to find results within the column.
    The following figure shows an example of options available in the Deployment status column filter.

    Filter icon for deployment status column is selected and shows a checkbox for each deployment status and a search text field above the Apply button.
  5. Click the package that you want to rename.
    Note: In Robot Manager, the name acts as a label that you can update to make it easier to find packages. However, an update to the package name in Robot Manager does not change the package contents or package identifier.
  6. On the Package details page, click ActionsEdit package.
    Result: The Edit package dialog box provides editable fields for Name and Description, and lists the original package name in the Original file name section for reference.
  7. Enter a name, description, or both, and then click Submit.
    For example, in the following figure, the name of the package in Robot Manager will change from: Add Account to: Account Management.
    Edit package dialog box
    Edit package dialog box shows editable name and description fields and lists the original package name for reference.
Result: The changes that you made are reflected on the Packages page and details pages in Robot Manager:
New package name reflected on Packages landing page
The new name of Account Management is displayed in the list of packages on the Packages landing page.
