Pega automatic draft off mode for processes in case types

 What is the Draft mode for processes in Pega?

Draft mode provides an option to test the case type before you advance with your application development, even if processes in your case life cycle contain configuration issues.
When you add a process to your case life cycle, by default the process is in draft mode.
When a process is in draft mode, you can check its run-time behavior by running the processor previewing it in a user portal, even if the process contains errors. However, to ensure that the process works correctly after you deploy your application in a production environment, you need to turn off draft mode before moving relevant rulesets to the production environment.
