Requestor Type data instances

Users and external systems connect to Pega Platform using one of four requestor types. Requestor type data instances define the types of requestors that can access your system, such as a browser session, an external application, or an internal background process.

The following tabs are available on this form:

Four requestor type data instances are defined. Each determines the rulesets, versions, access roles, and startup activities used by requestor sessions of that type.


The Data-Admin-Requestor class contains requestor type data instances. They are part of the SysAdmin category.

Associated ruleset

When you save a requestor type data instance, if the Associated RuleSet is [none], the system completes this field with a ruleset from the current application. This association assists with application packaging. You can update the associated ruleset using the field in the upper right corner of the form. See Identifying parts of rule and data forms.

If there is no ruleset associated with the data instance (for example, for existing instances not previously associated with a ruleset), the Associated RuleSet displays [none].
