Adding an S3 repository


Add an S3 repository to provide centralized storage, versioning, and metadata support for file storage and knowledge management, for example, to store and source file attachments in cases.

Pega Cloud Services environments do not support adding local file system repositories. Instead, client applications running in Pega Cloud Services environments use a default S3 repository that is preconfigured and optimized for Pega Cloud environments. This repository appears as pegacloudfilestorage in your list of repositories in Records SysAdmin Repository in Dev Studio. For details, see Pega Cloud Services File Storage.

To create a repository, your access group must have the PegaRULES:RepositoryAdministrator role. To use a repository, your access group must have the PegaRULES:RepositoryUser role.
  1. In the header of Dev Studio, click Create SysAdmin Repository .

  2. Enter a short description of the repository and the repository name and click Create and open.

  3. In the Definition tab, click Select and select the repository type.

  4. In the Bucket field, enter the S3 bucket location where artifacts are stored.

  5. In the Authentication profile field, enter the name of the authentication profile to connect to the repository. To create an authentication profile, click the target icon to the right of the Authentication profile field.

    Do not select the Provide secret access key by reference in clear text check box when creating an authentication profile for a repository. This check box is only used when entering Global Resource Settings, and Global Resource Settings are not supported for repositories.
  6. Click Test connectivity to verify whether your credentials are valid.

  7. Click Validate repository to test the connection to the Repository APIs and review the results in the Test Repository Connectivity window. The results include the total time to complete the test, the Repository APIs tested, and the status of the connection.

  8. Click Save.
