What is a repository?

A repository is a system that stores assets and provides versioning and metadata support, for example, Microsoft Azure or Amazon-S3. In a continuous integration and delivery pipeline, repositories provide centralized storage for software that is to be tested, shipped or deployed. Pega Platform can communicate with common repository technologies and can also act as a binary repository. Pega Platform can browse, publish, or fetch artifacts that are created whenever an action creates a RAP: for example, exporting an application, product, branch, or component.

To create a repository, the operator's access group must have the PegaRULES: RepositoryAdministrator role. To use a repository, your access group must have the PegaRULES: RepositoryUser role.
