Question

Best Way to create a Property Programmatically?

I need a way of creating Properties dynamically - (most probably) using a Pega Activity.

One approach I have tried is to dynamically construct a Page of type 'Rule-Obj-Property' and save it - but I'm not sure that tickles all the right caches / takes proper care of validation etc.

Thanks

John

Hello, 

I think I would try to open an existing one as a template and change key details before saving again.

I have done this method when I had to create 200+ properties in one section for performance PoC.

John, you could probably check how properties get created when you add fields under Data Model tab in Case Designer. One of the activities involved is Embed-Fields.pzCreateOrUpdateProperty.
