Synchronizing the Actuals data set


The Actuals data set contains Interaction History (IH) records after you synchronize it with the Interaction History database. You synchronize Actuals one time after upgrading Pega Platform from version earlier than 7.3. You might need to synchronize Actuals when you have cleaned up IH database tables by deleting records older than a given time stamp.

When you do succeeding synchronizations of the Actuals data set, not all added IH records are synchronized. IH records that are older than the newest record of the last synchronization cannot be uploaded into the Actuals data set.
  1. In Dev Studio, click Data Model Data Set Actuals .

  2. Click Synchronize.

    Synchronization time depends on the number of IH records that are synchronized.

    Automatic synchronization

    Automatic synchronization takes place when you start Visual Business Director for the first time after upgrading Pega Platform from version earlier than 7.3. Interaction History data is loaded eagerly, aggregated, and the results of the aggregation are written to Cassandra. As a result, the first start might take longer. During subsequent starts, the Actuals data set and other VBD data sets are loaded lazily.

  • 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

  • The Data Sources tab

    The Data Sources tab displays data sources that represent the contents of the Interaction History (Actuals) or the records that you want to visualize in the VBD Planner. These data sources are generated by running a data flow that generates simulation data.
