Building your first application

Summary

This self-service short course provides the steps for building a simple working application in PegaRULES Process Commander.

Required: You must use a PRPC 6.1 SP2 system with this tutorial. The steps do not work for systems other than PRPC 6.1 SP2.

While Pegasystems' Fast Track course provides an immersive, 5-day hands-on introduction to the features and steps needed to develop an application in PegaRULES Process Commander, this self-service course outlines a fictitious scenario and provides the steps for building a simple application within that scenario. Although the tutorial is not a substitute for the Fast Track course, you can use this tutorial to refresh your memory of the features and steps used in developing an application. Even though the Globex Onboarding application used in this self-service course is simple, the steps you follow are those recommended for each "slice" of a more ambitious application.

Note: The tutorial appears in a separate browser window from the PDN pages. Tutorial content is not included in PDN search results.

Tip: Don't just read through these steps: learn by doing. If you follow along, your system will contain a complete, working application that reflects good design and implementation practice that you have built yourself. Before performing the steps in your system, verify that you have satisfied the tutorial step prerequisites.

Video tour of the Globex Onboarding process

Watch this video to get an overview of the Globex Onboarding process that's built as you complete the tutorial steps.

Presented in animation without soundtrack, this video first introduces the Onboarding application within the Designer Studio, and then walks through the process from creation of the work item to its resolution.

Prerequisites for performing the tutorial steps

While you can read the tutorial content without performing the steps, the most benefit comes from actually doing the steps of the tutorial in a Process Commander system.

Before performing the tutorial steps in your Process Commander system, verify that you have satisfied the following conditions:

Condition

How to verify

You have access to a V6.1SP2 system. Select the Help > About menu item to confirm the version of your system.
You have Microsoft Visio 2003 or higher installed on your computer. Open your Windows control panel and double-click Add/Remove Programs. Confirm that Visio is listed.
Your operator ID references an access group containing the PegaRULES:SysAdm4 role. Access the operator menu (the menu with your name) at the top of the Designer Studio window. Select Access Group from the menu.
Your system does not contain RuleSets named GLBX, GLBXInt, OnboardingFW, and OnboardingFWInt. On the left panel of the Designer Studio, select the Rules Explorer. Expand the SysAdmin category (SysAdmin ). Click RuleSet to view a list of RuleSets in the right panel. If a list does not appear, select INSTANCES from the drop-down list at the left of the top toolbar.
Your system does not contain an organization named GLBX. On the left panel of the Designer Studio, select the Rules Explorer. Expand the Organization category ( Organization). Click Organization to view a list of organizations in the right panel. If a list does not appear, select INSTANCES from the drop-down list at the left of the top toolbar.

You should be familiar with the PegaRULES Process Commander Designer Studio.
