Tracking projects using Agile Studio
The ultimate goal of software development is to provide a reliable delivery that will drive business value and outcomes. Traditional software development approaches are being successfully replaced with more iterative and adaptable approaches for faster deliveries and time to value. When fully implemented, the results can produce significant innovative, competitive business benefits.
Why agile? Businesses adopt Agile for a number of reasons, including:
- To manage changing priorities
- To accelerate time-to-market
- To increase productivity
- To enhance software quality
- And more

One of the tools included in Pega Cloud Services is Agile Studio.
The Pega agile project management system enables your application development teams and your stakeholders to execute your projects using the industry best practice Scrum methodology. Agile Studio integrates with Designer Studio (in the Pega Platform™) for traceability between your developer environment and your project management system. As part of implementing your Pega applications, Pega strongly recommends that you use Agile Studio to track your projects’ status.
Agile Studio focuses on three core pillars:
- Plan future development and product needs via releases
- Manage your teams, backlogs, and technical debt to make sure that you can deliver your releases effectively
- Execute on the planned work by enabling your teams to complete their assigned work
Logging into Agile Studio
Your credential file provides two logins for Agile Studio:
Application URL: https://abc-ccard-agilestudio.pegacloud.net/prweb Username: firstname.lastname@example.org password: *************** AgileStudio Username: AgileStudioSysAdmin password: ***************
Use the AgileStudioSysAdmin login username and password for implementation tasks, as described in the Agile Studio Implementation Guide. This Guide provides system administrators with detailed instructions about how to perform post-installation setup and configuration tasks that should be completed before users begin working in the Agile Studio application.
All connection setup tasks are performed in your development system; you must repeat the setup process in each development system where you are planning to track and monitor project work. In the Set up a connection to a development system section of the Implementation Guide, you will use the email@example.com login username and password.
The Agile Studio User Guide is designed to help users of the Pega Agile Studio become familiar with basic and commonly used features that support the creation and management of Scrum projects in your organization, including adding and maintaining product and release information, setting up goals, epics, and sprints, and so on.
Both of these Guides can be found on the Pega Agile Studio Pega Community page.
