Using scripting with direct connection to the database and the prpcUtils tool

Version:

Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

Use the prpcUtils tool if you have a direct connection to the database to manage system management actions even if you do not have an active instance of Pega Platform.

If you need to run asynchronous operations, or you do not have a direct connection to the database, use the prpcServiceUtils tool. For more information about the prpcServiceUtils tool, see Using service-enabled scripting and the prpcServiceUtils tool.

Configure the prpcUtils.bat or prpcUtils.sh script actions in the prpcUtils.properties file.

You can also pass arguments to the script to override settings in the prpcUtils.properties file.

  • Use the properties file to set property values for reuse to minimize errors in entering commands.

  • Use the command-line arguments to augment or override values in the property file, for example, to customize one script action. The use of these arguments is optional. Each argument should be preceded with two hyphens (--).
