How to store large data in a single value property



Large XML must be stored in data table under a single value property without parsing it. This data table is mapped to a table in the database. Can the data type be changed to Character Large Object (CLOB) to store large XML?


CLOB is not supported by Pega Platform.
Store it in Binary Large Object (BLOB) using an unoptimized property.
Store it as an attachment, which will again go into the BLOB.

If the text size of the exposed column exceeds 4000 characters, the data up to 4000 characters would be stored with an additional + symbol. The + symbol indicates that some of the information has been truncated.
