Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

Use the prpcServiceUtils command-line tool to update access groups to provide access to a new application version as part of an automated deployment.

You must have a running Pega Platform instance to use the prpcServiceUtils tool.

Follow these steps to update an access group.

  1. Configure the common properties of the prpcServiceUtils.properties file.

    Property name Value
    pega.rest.server.url The URL for the REST service, specified in the following format:

    http:// <hostname> : <port> / <context> /PRRestService/

    For example: http://myhost:8080/prweb/PRRestService
    pega.rest.username The operator name on the target system with access to REST services.
    pega.rest.password The password of the specified operator.
    pega.rest.proxy.host

    The host name of the REST proxy server. Do not use localhost as the host name.

    pega.rest.proxy.port

    The port for the REST proxy server.

    pega.rest.proxy.username

    The operator name on the REST proxy server with import and export access.

    pega.rest.proxy.password

    The password of the REST proxy operator.

    pega.rest.proxy.domain

    The domain of the REST proxy server.

    pega.rest.proxy.workstation

    The workstation ID for the REST proxy server.

    pega.rest.response.type The REST response type, either xml or json. The default value is json. Rollback, restore point, and update access group operations support only json.
    user.temp.dir

    Enter the full path to the temporary directory. Leave this blank to use the default temporary directory. For more information about temporary directories, see Temporary files and temporary files directories .

  2. Optional:

    Specify the names of the access groups to update.

    If you do not enter a list of access groups, the system updates all access groups that access the application.

    updateAccessGroup.groupList=AccessGroup1, AccessGroup2, AccessGroup3

  3. Specify the application name.

    updateAccessGroup.applicationName=your-application-name
  4. Specify the new application version.

    updateAccessGroup.applicationVersion=X.X.X
  5. Save and close the prpcServiceUtils.properties file.

  6. Run the prpcServiceUtils.bat or prpcServiceUtils.sh script with the updateaccessgroup option, for example:

    prpcServiceUtils.bat updateaccessgroup

    Optional: Pass one or more arguments.

    prpcServiceUtils script argument Action
    connPropFile Enter the full path to the connection.properties file that includes information for multiple targets.
    poolSize Enter the thread pool size. Default is 5.
