Editing administrator privileges for importing archives with schema changes into production

Assigning a role with schema privileges set to production level 5 enables administrators to import archives containing schema changes into a production system. For example, Pega Cloud customers can have their administrator import archives that include schema changes without requiring Pegasystems Cloud Operations to perform this step.

To enable the system to import an archive with schema changes into production, edit the following role privileges:

  • SchemaImport - Enables you to make schema changes when importing an archive.
  • ViewAndOptimizeSchema - Controls access to the Optimize Schema and Modify Schema landing pages.

The default system administrator role is PegaRules:SysAdm4; the default setting for these privileges is production level 2. As a best practice, create an application-specific role that contains the updated privileges and then assign that role to administrator access groups.

For more information about production levels, see Completing the Production tab in the help.
