Component design blocks

Updated on October 19, 2022

Pega Robot Studio includes custom components you can use to build automaitons. You can add a component to your automations from the Palette.

Components differ based on the type of component. The following table lists the categories of components and examples:

Certain components have properties, methods, and events associated with them. These components display as the selected values: if you select Properties in the Select action dialog box, the design block displays as a P for Properties. Other components display a gear icon to indicate a component, as shown in the following figure:
