Configuring the DataSet-Execute method for Monte Carlo
You can automate data management operations on records that are defined by the Monte Carlo data set by using the DataSet-Execute method. You can perform these operations programmatically, instead of doing them manually.
Create an activity rule from the navigation panel, by clicking DataSet-Execute method., to start theFor more information, see Creating an activity.
Click the activity Steps tab.
In the Method field, enter DataSet-Execute.
In the Step page field, specify the step page on which the method operates, or leave this field blank to use the primary page of this activity.
Enter a description for the method.
Click the Arrow icon to the left of the Method field to expand the Method Parameters section.
In the Data Set field, enter the name of the Monte Carlo data set.
In the Operation list, to read all records from the Monte Carlo data set, select the Browse operation and specify additional settings:
In the Maximum number of records to read field, enter a value to define the threshold for stopping the browse operation. You can also define this value through an expression.
In the Store results in field, define the result page. The result page consists of an existing Code-Pega-List page.
- About Data Set rules
Data sets define collections of records, allowing you to set up instances that make use of data abstraction to represent data stored in different sources and formats. Depending on the type selected when creating a new instance, data sets represent Visual Business Director (VBD) data sources, data in database tables or data in decision data stores. Through the data management operations for each data set type, you can read, insert and remove records. Data sets are used on their own through data management operations, as part of combined data

- DataSet-Execute method
Apply the DataSet-Execute method to perform data management operations on records that are defined by data set instances. By using the DataSet-Execute method, you can automate these operations and perform them programmatically instead of doing them manually. For example, you can automatically retrieve data from a data set every day at a certain hour and further process, analyze, or filter the data in a data flow.
