For Oracle databases only running Pega Platform versions earlier than 8.4: Granting access to the new rules schema tables

Version:

Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

Grant access to link the data and new patch schema required for Oracle databases running Pega Platform version prior to 8.4.

With the new rule tables in the patched schema, you must grant access privileges to the user by generating and applying the necessary rules objects DDL (GRANT statements) which are required to link the data and the patch schema. Deployment users use the migrate.bat or migrate.sh script again for this process, using different, appropriate property settings in the migrateSystem.properties file. To minimize the time required, run the migration scripts from the same data center as the database server.

Pega strongly recommends that you use the Pega-provided migration script. The use of vendor tools to manage this step is not recommended, since there are additional manual steps required to migrate the schema, not documented here, if you do not use the migrate script.
  1. Use a text editor to edit the migrateSystem.properties file in the scripts directory:

    Pega-image\scripts\migrateSystem.properties
  2. Configure the target properties:

    pega.target.jdbc.driver.jar=full path/DRIVER.JAR
    pega.target.jdbc.driver.class=database driver class
    pega.target.database.type=database vendor type
    pega.target.jdbc.url=database URL
    pega.target.jdbc.username=Deployment user name
    pega.target.jdbc.password=password
    pega.target.rules.schema=existing rules schema name
    pega.target.data.schema=existing data schema name
    If pega.target.data.schema is blank, the rules schema is used by default.
  3. Configure a temporary directory:

    pega.migrate.temp.directory=full path to temporary directory
  4. Configure the operations to be performed by the utility as shown below:

    pega.move.admin.table=false
    pega.clone.generate.xml=false
    pega.clone.create.ddl=false
    pega.clone.apply.ddl=false
    pega.bulkmover.unload.db=false
    pega.bulkmover.load.db=false
    pega.rules.objects.generate=true
    pega.rules.objects.apply=true
  5. Save the properties file.

  6. Open a command prompt, and navigate to the scripts directory.

  7. Type migrate.bat or ./migrate.sh to run the script.

Pega Platform writes command-line output to a file in the Pega-image\scripts\logs directory.
