Applies To class is marked as mandatory in data page



When you are creating a Data Page the new rule form does not display the "Apply To" field as a required field yet a validation error occurs after clearing out the field value.

Error Messages

Validation Error: Value cannot be blank

Steps to Reproduce

1. Go to the rules explorer and create a Data Page rule.
2. Notice that the "Apply To" field does not display the star indicating it is required.
3. Clear out the contents of the "Apply To" field.

4. Notice that an error appears that "Apply To" field cannot be empty.

Root Cause

The root cause of this problem is a defect in Pegasystems’ code/rules. Since the "Apply To" field is directly linked to the required object type field of the Data Page, the new rule form must display this field as required.


This issue is scheduled to be resolved in Pega 7.1.9.
