Beginner Pega Customer Decision Hub '24.1 English


U+ Bank is currently cross-selling on the web by showing various credit cards to its customers.

The bank wants to run a distribution test simulation in Pega Customer Decision Hub™ and output the results to a database table and view the results by using out-of-the-box simulation reports.

Use the following credentials to log in to the exercise system:

Role User name Password
Next-Best-Action Designer NBADesigner rules

Your assignment consists of the following tasks:

Task 1: Create and run a distribution test simulation

Create a distribution test simulation run to:

  • Use the Trigger_NBA_Grow_Creditcards strategy.
  • Output the run results to the database.
  • Add out-of-the-box simulation report to the simulation.

Task 2: View the simulation run results

Use the out-of-the-box simulation report to view the simulation run results.


You must initiate your own Pega instance to complete this Challenge.

Initialization may take up to 5 minutes so please be patient.
