Action section does not display for a particular Action Name



A a visibility condition of Param.TaskStatus!="<ActionName>" is configured on the pyCaseActionArea.

In the perform harness, the action section does not display for a particular Action Name. Error occurs on clicking another flow action from the menu.

This occurs after upgrading Pega 7.2.2 to Pega 8.1.1.

Error Messages

Script error on screen

Local actions are available only when you are performing the assignment.

Steps to Reproduce

Set a visibility condition on the pyCaseAction area section include. The Visibility condition is an expression based on the parameter value.

Root Cause

In Pega 7.2, 'Run visibility condition on client' checkbox was present at design time. In the Pega 8 platform, this checkbox has been removed

The parameter value is only present in server side and not in the client. Thus, 'Run on client' based on the parameter value is not a valid combination.

Hence, the design time configuration was updated such that it does not display the 'Run on client' checkbox.


As a local-change, replace the parameter value in the Visibility condition with a property reference.
