Issue in downloading the package from branch



Out-of-the-box, a JAR file is created when a branch is packaged. The user is restricted from downloading the JAR file. However, a ZIP file is created for Product rule and the user is able to download the same.
The requirement is for an option to decide the type of file, JAR or ZIP.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a branch.
  2. Package the branch ruleset before a Merge. Error displays when clicking the product file link since it is in the JAR format. This works when downloading the product from the existing Product rule since that is in ZIP format.

Root Cause

This issue was determined to be a product enhancement request.


An enhancement request,FDBK-30786, is created for consideration by Pega Product Management.

As a local-change, navigate to Export and select Download from Archive on Server. The JAR file created is present here.
