The infrastructure team at U+ Bank is about to enable the website to communicate with Pega Customer Decision Hub™. To proceed, they must agree with the business team on a critical detail: the name of the real-time container. This name is used by the website’s API to retrieve next best actions from the Customer Decision Hub. The infrastructure team suggests using the name TopOffers.

There is also an agreement that Customer Decision Hub must capture an impression whenever it receives a container request, and when a click-through is received, an action flow does not initiate.

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

Role Username Password
Decisioning Analyst CDHAnalyst rules
Caution: To reuse the exercise system from a previous challenge, first complete the Creating an action challenge. Otherwise, click Initialize Pega or Reset Instance in this challenge.

Your assignment consists of the following tasks:

Task 1: Create a real-time container

Create a real-time container called TopOffers and leave all options at the default values.

Task 2: Verify the newly created real-time container

In the Containers tab, notice that the newly created container is listed.

Challenge Walkthrough

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