Ruleset validation modes

Updated on March 21, 2022

Ruleset validation is a Pega Platform mechanism for ensuring that rules that an application references are available on the target system and accessible by the application. Ruleset validation does not affect rule resolution at run time but Pega Platform applies it only at design time.

For relevant training materials, see Ruleset validation.

Pega Platform provides two types of ruleset validation:

Application validation (AV) mode
Validates a ruleset only within the application context. When you configure a ruleset to use AV, Pega Platform determines which rules are valid to reference at design time without using ruleset prerequisites.
Ruleset validation (RV) mode
Validates a ruleset based on the prerequisites that you define in another ruleset.
Note: Using AV mode offers performance advantages over the alternative RV mode.
