Setting a size limit for data import into a data set

Version:

When you import data into a data set, the maximum size of the import package is 100 MB by default. You can decrease this value to 1 MB or increase it up to 2047 MB.

  1. Modify the size limit for data import in one of the following ways:

    • To modify the prconfig.xml file, go to step 2.
    • To Create an instance of the dynamic system setting rule that overrides the size limit in the prconfig.xml file, go to step 3.
  2. Ask a system administrator to change the following setting in the prconfig.xml file:

    <env name="Initialization/MaximumFileUploadSizeMB" value="100" />, where value is the maximum size of the import package. The available range is from 1 to 2047.
  3. Create an instance of the dynamic system setting rule that overrides the size limit in the prconfig.xml file by performing the following actions:

    1. In Dev Studio, click Create SysAdmin Dynamic System Settings .

    2. Enter a short description. For example, MaxImportSizeDataSet.

    3. In the Owning Ruleset field, enter Pega-Engine.

    4. In the Setting Purpose field, enter prconfig/Initialization/MaximumFileUploadSizeMB/default.

    5. Click Create and open.

    6. In the Value field, enter the maximum size of the package that can be imported. The available range is from 1 to 2047.

    7. Click Save.

  • Importing data into a data set

    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.

  • 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
