Other Applications tab
Access the Other Applications tab from the header of Dev Studio by clicking.
Administrators (operators with the PegaRULES:SysAdm4 role or a role based on that role) can use this tab to lock and roll applications in the Pega Platform system other than those in the ruleset stack of the current application. For example, when upgrading a Pega Platform it is considered best practice to lock all applications and create new ruleset versions before resuming development.
This page displays all applications in the system that contain an unlocked ruleset version and lists the rulesets and ruleset versions that make up each application including those inherited from any built-on applications.
To open an application rule in the list, click its name.
|RuleSet||The rulesets and versions in the application.|
Contains an icon indicating the lock status of ruleset versions for the application.
Click an icon to open a window that displays a list of versions, and for each version, the lock status and the number of total and checked out versioned and non-versioned rules including ruleset, class, and organization instances.
|Checked Out||The total number of checked-out versioned and non-versioned rules.|
|All Rules||The total number of versioned and non-versioned rules. Click a number to open a window listing the rule types and counts comprising the total. Click a row (including Total) in the list to drill down to a list of rule instances comprising a rule type.|
|Lock and Roll||Click to display the Application Lock and Roll window where you can review, lock current ruleset versions, and roll (increment) versions in a single step. You can optionally update your current application rule to reflect the new versions, or create a new application rule that contains the new ruleset versions.|
In the window, select the application ruleset versions you want to lock and roll to a higher version.
Select the check box to indicate you want to lock the ruleset version and roll to a new version. Locking prevents a developer from saving new rule instances to this version, or updating or deleting existing instances.
A icon appears if there is a condition that might prevent you from locking the ruleset version. For example: A higher locked version exists or a version currently has rules checked out.
A icon appears if the ruleset version is already locked.
The ruleset and current version.
Rulesets using Application Validation mode do not have prerequisites.
Click the + icon next to the Prerequisites label to display the Current and New prerequisites for the version. To open the rule form for a current ruleset and version, click its name in the Current list.
When you lock a ruleset version and select the Roll check box, you can modify the new prerequisites. By default, they are the same as the current ones. You can select different prerequisites, add additional ones, and delete ones from the New list. To add another ruleset version to the list, click the Add a row icon. To open the rule form for a ruleset in the New list, click the Open the Rule Form icon next to its name. To delete a ruleset from the New list, click the Delete icon next to its name.
|Password||Appears when you select the Lock check box. Enter the password for the ruleset version.|
|Roll||Displays when Lock is selected. Used to roll the ruleset to a higher version.|
|Roll to Version||Displays the version that the ruleset will be rolled to unless you indicate another version number. Defaults to the next logical number in the ruleset numbering sequence.|
|Description||Current description of the ruleset version.|
Select an option to run against the selected ruleset versions.
