pr_sys_ruleset_index table data grows exponentially



Performing Save As on a rule in a ruleset version results in multiple insertions in the pr_sys_ruleset_index table.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a new ruleset version from a ruleset (for example,RS).
  2. Perform a 'Save As' on a rule into the new ruleset version.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules.


Apply HFix-36490.

Applying this hotfix retrieves only the unlocked versions of the ruleset. Since performing the 'Save As' on a rule fetches and populates the ruleset and the ruleset versions (that this rule can be saved into), follow the below steps to avoid inserting multiple records into the table.
  1. Lock the ruleset versions that are not updated frequently.
  2. Consider the Branch ruleset instead of resaving into a new ruleset version.
