Pega internal tables and data dictionary
Hi - Can some please help me get a document explaining columns in Pega internal data tables or something like entity relationship diagram document. On various posts I am seeing this link(https://pdn.pega.com/entity-relationship-diagram-work-object-tables-pegarules-database) been provided for similar ask but its not working currently.
What do you mean it is not working?
The link that you specified above currently marked as an internal document so it is not available to the public. Not sure if this is allowed for anyone outside the company without some sort of permission.
Right sorry about that.
Anyway, to answer the previous question, as I see it, Pega is a build for change product. Working with fixed entity relationship would be too restrictive, not flexible enough to embrace customer requirements.
Hi, The URL is still not working. Is there an alternative link to the content?
I did a search on "internal data tables" and this is what pulled up.
I also did a search on "entity relationship diagram" and I found this.
The Link you found previously on other posts is no longer available. It is from 2007. Please use the search available on the main Pega Community page. That will allow you to search current content.
Hi Marissa, Thank you for your prompt reply. But I'm looking for the Pega knowledgebase article that describes the entity relationships between various Pega internal tables in the database. Please share the article if you can, even if its archived. Thanks!
I was able to get this article re-published. But it is archived and no longer maintained so some of the information may be out of date.
Thank you, Marissa. I'm able to access the content now. Do you have an updated version of the article for version 7.x or Infinity?
This Pega Infinity knowledgebase article (KBA) is the best resource for your question:
Find it by clicking this path from the Pega Community menu:
Knowledgebase > Capabilities > All Capabilities > Data Integration > Get Started > Data Management article index
As Marc Lasserre stated in his reply of July 31, 2018, Pega's built-in data modeling capabilities -- based on the Pega concept of "properties" -- are intended to preclude the need for a visual data modeling tool like the standard ERDs.
From this main KBA, notice the left-hand navigation pane of expandable-collapsible Data Management articles. This is your Data Management article index or mini table of contents. Expand this list to see the full scope of the content, learn from it, and navigate to articles of interest.
Notice, too, that the bottom of each KBA displays a green navigation button to move forward and backward (Next and Previous) through the KBA series.
Happy Pega Data Modeling!
