Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

Comply with your data storage policy by configuring Pega Robot Manager to run a repository for package binary files.

As a system administrator or developer, connect your application to a repository for hosting automation package binaries. Then, configure Pega Robot Manager to point to that repository by specializing an instance of the pyPackageBinariesRepository rule in your application layer.
Create an instance of a Repository rule that points to the file storage system in which you want to store automation package binaries. For more information, see Creating a repository.

For example, to make your solution compatible with the cloud, you can configure a JFrog repository to store your package data.

  1. In Dev Studio, click Records SysAdmin Application Settings .

  2. Select the pyPackageBinariesRepository application settings rule, as shown in the following example:

    2. In the Context section, specify the owning ruleset.

    3. Click Create and open.

  4. In the Value per production level section, populate a Production Level field with the name of the remote repository for storing automation package binaries, as shown in the following example:
