Pega real time Scenario

Q) What Happen when Flow reach AssignMent on DB side?


If there are 2 rulesets, ruleset r1 is prerequisite of r2. How can we call an activity present in
r2 from activity present in r1.
We cannot call an activity present in a child ruleset from an activity present in its
prerequisite ruleset. Here Child activity can call a parent ruleset activity. This is the
reusability.
We can query database tables using Rdb-list, Rdb-browse, Rdb-open, Obj-Open, ObjBrowse, Obj-list.
Well are these built-in Pega activities successful in executing stored procedures?
Yes ofcourse we can execute stored procedures from Pega.
Use Obj-List like this.
In the browse tab you have to code as below if the stored procedure name is func1 with
one parameter Param1
then the line goes like this, you can add up to as many parameters you want. For example a
param to get the result of stored procedure execution.
CALL func1('{ASIS:Request.param1}')

_-Declare Expression: is an instance of Rule-Declare-Expressions/ is a declarative processing
which defines auto computation of property values based on expression. This implements
Backward Chaining.
What is Backward Chanining:

Backward chaining: is a technique which allows a computation in advance even the input
value or parameter is not present. BC uses Rule-Declare-Expression and Property-SeekValue method together finds the missing property value by using inter dependency network
such computations are called as Goal Seeking.
Two standard flowactions called VerifyProperty and VerifyPropertyWithListing are examples
of Backward Chaining.

Declare OnChange: Rule-Declare-OnChange/ is a declarative processing which


automatically run an activity when a value of the specified property changes. These
implements Forward Chaining.
What is Forward Chaining.

Forward Chaining: is an internal technique which automatically finds the changes in one
property value to changes in other property values or indexes.
Declare Trigger: Rule-Declare-Trigger/ is a declarative processing which automatically run
an activity when an instance of specific class are created, updated or deleted in the DB.
These implements Forward Chaining
Declare Constraint- Rule-Declare-Constraint/ is a declarative processing which
automatically run validation when a specified property is touched. This implements Forward
Chaining

harness rule defines a runtime form that supports application users as they enter, review,
update, and resolve work objects. Harnesses rules support the display of work object forms.
Developers define work object forms through harness rules (Rule-HTML-Harness rule type)
and section rules (Rule-HTML-Section rule type).
standard harness forms are New, Perform, Review, Confirm, Reopen, PrintReview
New Support initial entry (creation) of the object.
Perform Support users completion of assignments.
Review Display the work objects in display-only mode, with no fields changeable.
Confirm Accept a text note explaining a users reasoning about a recently completed
assignment.
Reopen Support reopening a previously resolved work object.
PrintReview Support printing of all the fields.
A section is a portion or area of a standard work object form that is incorporated on a
harness form. Sections may contain other sections, informally called subsections.
The appearance, behavior, and contents of a section are defined by a section rule (RuleHTML-Section rule type). Section rules are referenced in:

Harness rules
Other section rules
Flow action rules
Paragraph rules with SmartInfo pop-ups

Clipboard: is a tool used for debugging and troubleshooting aid for application developers.
Is an temporary memory area on server. Its an hierarchy structure consisting of nodes
known as pages most of which have a name and an associated class.
Pages act as a buffers or temporary copies of object instance that are copied from, or may
later be stored into, the PRPC DB or another DB.
Clipboard tool is used for developing and debugging to:
Examine property values and messages
Quickly create, update, delete and modify pages using Action menu
Quickly execute activities and start flows using action menu
We can find pages and we can Refresh or only refresh current page.
The clipboard contains three broad categories of top-level pages:
1. User Pages
2. Declared pages
3. System managed pages: requestor page, process page, and application pages, Thread
page, Operator ID, organization, orgDivision.
User Page: is a top level clipboard page that an activity creates pages using the methods
like Page-New. All the user pages will appear here once we log off, all the user pages will
be removed from the memory i.e. will not be saved to Pega DB.
If your requestor session times out, user pages may be lost, or may be saved for up to 3
days
Thread pagepxThread page is a top level clipboard page known as Thread page. The
page has a class of Code-Pega-Thread
Process PagepxProcess page is a top level clipboard page known as Process page. The
page has a class of Code-Pega-Process. This page Contains information from the Data-

Admin-System instance.
Declare Page-is a clipboard page created by execution of a declare page rules (RuleDeclare-Pages rule type. The name of the declarative pages start with Declare_. The
content of these pages are visible but Read-Only to the requestors. Such pages are created
and updated only through activities identified in a Declare Pages rule.
Declarative pages can improve performance and reduce memory requirement issues when
all or many requestors in an application need to access static information or slowly
changing information.
Requestor Page- pxRequestor page is a top level clipboard page known as Requestor
page. The page has a class of Code-Pega-Requestor. The system creates a page during at
login time and contains information about our Access roles, Security, Ruleset list and HTTP
protocol parameters, Work pools available details, workbasket that we can access,
connection session, Login Date and Time details and previous login Date and time details
etc.
This page context is useful for troubleshooting and debugging.
Page Context is a property is a pageList or Page Group property reference
property has mode Single Value and appears directly on a page of the Applies To class, or if
creating a context-free expression.

Decision Rule
A decision table is a rule defining a series of tests performed on property values to allow an
automated decision. Decision table are instances of the Rule-Declare-DecisionTable rule
type.
Decision tables can capture and present business logic in the form of one or more if
then else conditions.
A decision tree rule defines a series of tests that are performed on property values to allow
an automated decision. Decision trees are instances of the Rule-Declare-DecisionTree rule
type.
Decision trees can capture and present business logic in the form of one or more if
then else conditions.
A map value rule is a rule that converts one or two input values, such as latitude and
longitude numbers, into a calculated result value, such as a city name. The rule uses
ranges for the input value or values and a matrix to look up the result.

Map value rules are instances of the Rule-Obj-MapValue rule type. This rule type is part of
the Decision category.
When condition rule: When rule defines a true-false test based on comparing on or more
property values with constant values or with other property values. A when condition rule is
an instance of the Rule-Obj-When rule type

How to limit connections to Pega DB?
Open prconfig.xml file with XML editor (SMA)
locate pegarules DB username and password
add the following changes:

To limit size of the pool to 20 connections and if connection pool is empty for 30sec when a
requestor is waiting then java exception throws.
save the updated file and undeploy and redeploy to make changes effective.

A blocked rule and a withdrawn rule are both invisible to rule resolution. Similarly, both
blocked rules and withdrawn rules prevent lower-version rules with the same RuleSet and
visible key from being selected by rule resolution. However, a blocked rule may block other
rules in any RuleSet, and a blocked rule stops rule resolution from finding rules in higher
Applies To classes. A withdrawn rule affects other rules only in one RuleSet and one Applies
To class.
When you skim a RuleSet version that contains a blocked rule, the resulting RuleSet
version does not contain the blocked rule or any rules that the blocked rule blocks. When
you skim a RuleSet version that contains a withdrawn rule, the resulting RuleSet version
contains the withdrawn rule.

Diff b/w Blocked and Withdrawn Rules?
A blocked rule and a withdrawn rule are both invisible to rule resolution. Similarly, both
blocked rules and withdrawn rules prevent lower-version rules with the same RuleSet and
visible key from being selected by rule resolution. However, a blocked rule may block other
rules in any RuleSet, and a blocked rule stops rule resolution from finding rules in higher

When you skim a RuleSet version that contains a blocked rule, the resulting RuleSet
version does not contain the blocked rule or any rules that the blocked rule blocks. When
you skim a RuleSet version that contains a withdrawn rule, the resulting RuleSet version
contains the withdrawn rule.

What is the difference between Page-Validate and Property-Validate methods?


Page-Validate method is used to validate all the properties present on a page. If a page
has embedded pages, this method works recursively to validate all the properties. This
method consumes lot of system resources and takes more time. If you want to validate
specific properties use Obj-Validate method with Rule-Obj-Validate rule.
Property-Validate method is used to impose restrictions on a property value. Use Edit
validate rule along with Property-Validate method to impose restrictions. You can validate
multiple properties using Property-Validate method.
What is difference between Edit validate and Edit Input rules?
Edit Validate : Use edit validate rule to validate the property value using java code. Edit
validate rules can be used property-validate, Rule-Obj-Validate and Property rules.
Edit Input : Edit input rules converts user entered data into required format. For example
is the user enters date MM/DD/YYYY format, edit input rule coverts this date into DD-MMMYYYY (required format). Again we need to write java code for this transformation.
Where assignments will be stored in pega rules database?
Work List related assignments are stored in pc_assign_worklist.
Work basket related assignments are stored in pc_assign_workbasket.
Where work objects will be stored ?
Work Objects are stored in pc_work table by default. however if you want to store the
work objects in a user created table, follow the below mentioned steps.
Create a schema similar to pc_work table. (The best thing is to copy the pc_work
schema and modify the table name and constraints name if any)
Change the class group mapping (Data-Admin-DB-Table) to the newly created table.
If I have 3 different work objects in my application, how to store them in three different
tables?
Open/Create the Data-Admin-DB-Table instance for each class and mention the table
name. By doing this the individual work objects will be stored in the new table you
mentioned in the Data-Admin-DB-Table instance. This is a best practice if there too many
object instances for each class.
What is StepStatusGood, StepStatusFail rules?
StepStatusGood is a when condition defined in @baseclass, this when rule checks
whether the value of pxMethodStatus property is Good.
StepStatusFail is a when condition defined in @baseclass, this when rule checks whether
the value of pxMethodStatus property is Fail.
