Database naming conventions
When the Pega Platform database is initially installed, object names follow specific naming conventions. Tables and view that you add do not have to follow these conventions.
The initial naming conventions use the following prefixes for object names:
pc_identifies tables that contain instances that correspond to Pega-ProCom ruleset capabilities, such as flows, work items, and assignments.
pr4_identify tables for activities, properties, requestors, and other features of the rules engine, corresponding to Pega-RULES ruleset capabilities.
pvbv4_identifies views that speed queries and reporting.
sppr_identify stored procedures.
trpr4_identifies database triggers.
