prpcUtils export including schema changes in product rule



Pega deployment using prpcUtils fails. Database user configured does not have privileges to execute the DB schema changes, thus the exported product rule file must not contain any schema changes. The product rule exported has the 5.4 compatibility check box selected, but prpcUtils still includes schema changes in the exported product rule file.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

Export product rule with 5.4 compatibility check using prpcUtils.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules. The 5.4 compatibility check box property from the product rule is not used during the export process from the command line.


Perform the following local-change:
Modify the prpcUtils.xml file to specify the -m command line argument during export. With this change, schema changes will always be excluded from the export.

<java classname="" failonerror="true" fork="true" dir="${load.temp.dir}">
<classpath refid="prpc.base.path"/>
<jvmarg value="${jvm.arg.mem.max}"/>
<sysproperty key="" value="file:///${prbootstrap.config}" />
<sysproperty key="pegarules.config" value="${pegarules.config}" />
<arg value="com.pega.pegarules.deploy.internal.util.ExportImpl" />
<arg line="-p &quot;${export.archive.productkey}&quot;"/>
<arg line="-o &quot;${export.archive.full.path}&quot;"/>
<arg line="-U &quot;${exportRAP.username.arg}&quot;"/>
<arg line="-P &quot;${exportRAP.password.arg}&quot;"/>
<arg line="-m"/>
