Managing projects with Project Explorer

Updated on October 19, 2022

Use Project Explorer to add or organize project components such as automations, windows, or applications, to make your automations work more efficiently.

  1. From the Pega Robot Studio Start screen, open the project you want to manage.
  2. Click the Add button to open the Add menu.
    You can also right-click in the Project Explorer and select Add.
  3. Select the type of component you want to add:
    • Automation
    • Application
    • Form
    • Application bar
    • Citrix content
    • Existing file
    • Asset (application type)
    • Folder
  4. Define the properties for the selected component.
    For example, for an automation, you would name the automation and click Add.
  5. If there are existing components in the Project Explorer, you can right-click an existing component to access the Add menu for that component.
    Sometimes the right-click Add menu offers options that are specific to that project component. For example, options for Application method, Application form, and Deploy asset are only available when you right-click an Application.
    You can use the right-click menu to perform these tasks:
    • Open a component
    • Delete a component
    • Rename a component
    • Expand or collapse folders
    • Open a folder in File Explorer
    • Copy the path of a component
  • Project Explorer properties

    The property grid on the Project Explorer can show two types of information: basic properties for each component that the project contains, and project-level properties for deployment, Pega Platform integration, references, and runtime messages.

  • Add existing project item

    Add an existing automation, application, or Windows form to your project, to save time and eliminate duplicated effort.
