Activity status error when mapping requirement to specification



Activity status error occurs when mapping a requirement to a specification from the Specifications page.

Error Messages


Steps to Reproduce

  1. Navigate to Designer Studio > Application > Profile > Requirements or Specifications.
  2. Write a specification.
  3. In the Advanced tab, map the specification with one or more Requirements.
  4. Click the ‘+’ sign to map the specification with the requirement.

Root Cause

An issue in the custom application code or rules.

'pyPreGridUpdate' is modified in the application ruleset when configuring 'currentGridIndex' to a String value. Ideally, index values are in number format. Therefore, a runtime exception is observed when 'pyPreGridUpdate' is executed.


Perform either of the following local-changes to set a numeric value to 'currentGridIndex' property instead of String:
  • Use the pyPreGridUpdate out-of-the-box rule.
  • Modify the saved rule from the application ruleset.
