  1. Back up the database.
  2. Modify the file.
    • Specify database connection details (lines 34-39).
    • Specify rules and data schema names (lines 56 and 58).
    • The resave section begins at line 260. Set these parameters:
      • resave.classes.included=Rule-Declare-CaseMatch,Rule-Declare-Collection,Rule-Declare-Constraints,Rule-Declare-DecisionTable,Rule-Declare-DecisionTree,Rule-Obj-MapValue,Rule-Obj-When,Rule-Declare-Expressions,Rule-Declare-OnChange,Rule-Declare-Trigger,Rule-Declare-Index,Rule-Declare-Constraint,Rule-Obj-Property
      • resave.included.descendent=false
  3. Run the prpcUtils utility with the resave argument. On a windows machine, execute the following command: prpcUtils.bat resave.
