Rule versions review and comparison

Version:

Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

Inspecting and comparing rule versions helps you resolve merge conflicts, review and debug code, and audit changes that a developer made while the rule was checked out.

For example, you can compare the rule that you currently work on with previously checked out versions of the rule, branched versions, or the same rule in other ruleset versions.

Depending on your needs, you can inspect and compare rules in Pega Platform in the following ways:

Viewing changes to a specific rule on the History tab of the rule
View changes to a rule by reviewing different versions of the rule.

For more information, see Viewing changes to a specific rule.

Viewing versions of a rule on the Actions menu on a rule form
View differences between the current rule and a selected version and modify your version of the rule.

For more information, see Comparing rule versions.

Comparing rules and rule versions with the Compare Rules tool
Compare two different rules or two versions of a rule. The tool displays results in a user- friendly, color-coded way. You also can use the tool to export the results to a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet.

You can compare rules of the following types:

  • Activity
  • Data Transform
  • Function
  • Validate
  • Other technical rules that are text, such as the text files, JSP, and HTML rules.
For more information, see Comparing rules and rule versions with the Compare Rules tool.
  • Viewing changes to a specific rule

    Get quick and full insight into the changes to a rule by reviewing different versions of the rule on the History tab of the rule.

  • Comparing rule versions

    Compare rule versions to resolve merge conflicts, debug code, and audit changes that application developers made during rule check out. You can compare a rule with versions of the rule from before the rule check out, with the branched versions, or with the same rule in other ruleset versions.

  • Comparing rules and rule versions with the Compare Rules tool

    Apply the Compare Rules tool to two different rules or two versions of the same rule to identify and review changes between rules. The side-by-side comparison lets you quickly find the additions, deletions, or value changes that have occurred between two versions of a rule.
