I wanted to understand why some online courses like SSA 8 have cloud based exercise environment while others like the recently released LSA 8.3 require us to download the exercise environment and run it on a VM?
It would be really helpful to have both the options available for all online courses across PEGA academy to suit to each individuals need.
Cloud-based exercise systems have certain limitations placed on it for security reasons. Hence, for some courses that require you to have administrative rights to install/update/modify certain security sensitive rules, you have to download a VM to do that.
Thanks for the response CHUAT, It would be helpful if for the remainder of the exercises could be done on a cloud based environment. For security based exercises, the VM can be downloaded. This should work because most of PEGA exercises are independent of each other.
