US View Profile Send Message KevinZheng_GCS PEGA replied to akashd49 There are a lot of examples in the pega OOTB rules, just search obj-open-by-handle in the designer studio, e.g., ExpressApp activity first step. Also check the online help: https://pdn.pega.com/sites/pdn.pega.com/files/help_v721/procomhelpmain.htm#engine/database/tables/eng-db-handle-usage-ref.htm#kanchor3562 Posted: 4 years ago Posted: 4 Aug 2016 9:15 EDT × Close popover Prudhvi Ranjan Nallam (Prudhvi_N) PEGA Technical Solutions Engineer Pega IN View Profile Send Message Prudhvi_N PEGA replied to akashd49 Just search with the same text keeping "All Content", then many OOTB activities can be seen. Ideally, it is used to open and modify the contents of Work Objects to some other values. After that do obj-save with write now for saving the contents to DB.

Think of a data base query where you say something like Select * from SomeTable where Key='KeyValue'. Its the same. You may want to read, update or do something on a record in Pega - you use this call.
