Rules development

Rules are the building blocks of applications in Pega Platform and define the behavior of part of your application.

When you create cases, Pega Platform generates the rules that define your application behavior. You can further extend your application by creating or modifying rules.

For example, you can use a data transform to copy data from one source to another and change its format, such as combining a customer's first name and last name into a full name for credit card processing. You can also modify a UI screen so that it dynamically displays relevant information.

You can work with rules in various ways. For example, you can delegate rules to business users so that they can configure certain parts of your application without involvement from IT. In addition, you can collaborate with other development teams on an application by creating branches to work on a set of rules that you can merge into the base application.
