Importing data into a data set

Version:

Move data between data sets on the Pega Platform and initialize new Pega Platform instances by importing data set records that were exported from different Pega Platform data sets. You can import data into data sets that support the Save operation excluding the stream data sets like Facebook, Stream, or YouTube.

    Do not import a package that was not exported from a data set or was manually modified after the export operation. The data.json and the MANIFEST.mf files might be incorrect and cause errors.
  2. Optional:

    If necessary, change the size limit for data import.

  3. In Dev Studio, click Records Data Model Data Set and open an instance of the Data Set rule.
