Initial Agent Schedule data instances


Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

The Pega Platform includes the following standard agents rules. When the system is first started on a node, agent schedule data instances are generated automatically from the agents rules. You cannot update the standard agents rules, but you can override or adjust their configuration settings by updating the corresponding generated agent schedules.

With the exception of the agents listed in the Pega-ProCom agents rule, do not enable standard legacy agents (those created before PRPC Version 5.4) on more than one node.

If you have a multi-node Pega Platform cluster, configure the generated agent schedules so that the agents listed in the Pega-RULES agents rule and the three legacy agents listed in the Pega-IntSvcs agents rule run on one node only.
