Insufficient privilege error when Importing application



We have two Pega servers running on Oracle. When exporting an application from one and importing to the other, we encounter an insufficient privileges error.

Error Messages

Database-General Problem Executing SQL to update database schema

ORA-01031: Insufficient Privileges

Steps to Reproduce

1. On first server created a new application.
2. Create Rule-Admin-Product using packager.
3. Create a JAR file using export operation.
4. On another server attempt import. Observe error.

Root Cause

The root cause of this problem is defect/misconfiguration in the PRPC operating environment. The PegaRULES database user was not provisioned with all of the necessary privileges.


This issue is resolved through the following local change: Provision the database user with all appropriate database privileges as outlined by the Deployment Guide.
