Note: The following content, referenced from Pega Community, is included here to help you better achieve the module learning objectives.

You typically connect a data object to a system of record when you first create a data object. For example, for an Employee data object, you might connect to a system of record that populates the data object with employee information fields, such as Name, Department, or Start Date. However, you can connect an existing data object to a system of record after creation by completing the following steps.

  1. In the navigation pane of App Studio, click Data.

  2. Under Data, click Data objects and integrations.

  3. Click a data object.

  4. Click the Data views tab.

  5. Click Connect to system of record.

    The System field displays Pega as the default system.

    • To connect to a Pega system of record, accept the default.
    • To create a new system to connect to an external database, click Create new.
  6. Click Submit.

    Note: The Data views tab displays the data view name, type, and database source.
  7. Click Save.
