Twitter Data set type is missing in Pega 8

Hi All,

I am developing a solution on Pega 8 platform, I would like to create twitter dataset, but when I tried to open dataset rule form I am unable to find Twitter in Type list dropdown.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. In Designer Studio, click + Create > Data Model > Data Set.
  2. Provide the data set label and identifier.
  3. From the Type list, select Twitter. (This option is missing in Pega 8)

Please find attached screenshot for reference.

Could you please advise on this.

I found this in the help file, Also verified that data set class type for twitter is present in Pega 8. Please check if this solves your issue.

Social media

You can create the following data set records for analyzing text-based content that is posted on social media:

Note: Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube data sets are available when your application has access to the Pega-NLP ruleset.

I actually have the same issue with a Pega Labs 8.2 environment. Like the screenshot attached in the first post, the twitter type is not available.

The class type may exists but I cant choose it when creating a dataset. I added Pega-NLP ruleset explicitly to my stack.


Can somebody pleaase help?


kind regards

Hi There, 

is there any solution to this situation?

I added the Ruleset Pega-NLP:08-02-03 to my application but Twitter doesn't show up in the list of possible Data Set Type.
