Tutorial: Referencing remote repository data in a data flow

After you configure the remote data set that you want to use as the data source for your strategy, ensure that the data is ingested through the data flow from the remote repository to Pega Platform™ in the cloud.

Prerequisites: Configure the following records:

  1. Click Create > Data Model > Data Flow.
  2. In the Create Data Flow tab, configure the data flow:
    1. In the Label field, enter a name for the new record, for example:
      Xauto Customer Data
    2. In the Context section, select the Apply to class and ruleset version.

      Ensure that you select the same Apply to class as the data set.

Next steps

Configure a decision strategy and add it to the data flow to analyze the ingested data. For more information, see Strategy rules - Completing the New, Save As, or Specialization form.

You can add other elements to your data flow to analyze and process the ingested data as needed. For example, you can add a Filter element to extract only the data for a specific customer type, or combine the ingested data with another data set by adding a Compose element. For more information, see Creating a data flow.
