I have been trying to generate connector rules using Pega 7.3. All of the documentation I have found is either outdated or doesn't apply. I have successfully connected my external MSSql database using these instructions: https://www.pegaxchange.com/category/integration/interacting-with-an-ex… . But I cannot figure out how to apply rules to my external database tables so that I can do some simple CRUD operations on my database. The Connector and Metadata Wizard no longer exists. The Pega documentation refers me to the Connector and Metadata accelerator, which also seems to no longer exist. If I try to use Integration-Connectors>Connect SQL I cannot make any sense of how to make it work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
The metadata wizard is no longer an option in my version 7.3. If it is, I cannot locate it. This is what my dashboard looks like. I have no problem connecting to the database. There is just no connector wizard (Integration > Connectors > Connector and Metadata Wizard >), and the current options are not working. Documentation is scarce on this subject.
I have only been able to connect to the database via the "Test connection" button via the create database page. I have not been able to create the connectors to get to the steps that you describe. Not having/knowing the alternative to the connector and metadata wizard is the root of my problem.
Once the connection is successful once you configured the class to external database table, it's not required to test the connection while fetching the details in activity steps. Pega will internally get the results and mapped to clipboard.
After upgrading , i found that Connector and Metadata Wizard option is changed to Connector and Metadata Wizard (legacy). Are these connectors are legacy now ? Basically, we want to import jar in pega and want to create connector. If these are legacy now , are there any other better ways to do it ?
Designer Studio -> Integration -> Connectors --> Connector and Metadata Wizard (legacy).
