Configuring data migration pipelines
Data migration tests provide you with significant insight into how the changes that you make to decision logic affect the results of your strategies. To ensure that your simulations are reliable enough to help you make important business decisions, you can deploy a sample of your production data to a dedicated data migration test environment.
When you use Deployment Manager 5.1.x in data migration pipelines, you automate exporting data from the production environment and into the simulation environment. Data migration pipelines also require the following:
- Pega Platform 8.3.x or higher
- Decision management
- Pega Marketing
For more information about data migration pipelines, see these articles on Pega Community:
- Modifying a pipeline
You can change the URLs of your production and simulation environments. You can also change the application information for which you are creating the pipeline.
- Diagnosing a pipeline
You can diagnose your pipeline to verify its configuration. For example, you can verify that the orchestration system can connect to the production and simulation environments.
- Scheduling a pipeline by creating a job scheduler rule
You can schedule a data migration pipeline to run during a specified period of time by creating and running a job scheduler. The job scheduler runs a Deployment Manager activity (pzScheduleDataSyncPipeline) on the specified pipeline, based on your configuration, such as weekly or monthly.
