Assignment Link failed to generate properly



The out of the box AssignmentLink correspondence rule is not working as expected when agents are involved. The AssignmentLink rule relies on the pxRequestor.pxReqContextURI property and pxThread.pxReqServletName to form the link to the assignment. When an email correspondence is sent, the link within the email does not have the proper URL when it launches from an Agent requestor. 

Error Messages

Not Applicable. 

Steps to Reproduce

  1.  Create a flow with two level approval system.
  2.  Set up first assignment shape which will send an email for approval.
  3.  Once a reply mail is send back , Pega will proceed the first assignment and move the item to second approval assignment. 
  4.  Send an email from second assignment for approval.
  5.  The second approval email lack the proper URL to open the assignment. 

Root Cause

An issue in the custom application code or rules.


Perform the following local-change:
In '
AssignmentLink' correspondence fragment

replace the code  {pxRequestor.pxReqContextURI LITERAL}/{pxThread.pxReqServletName LITERAL}  with <%=pega_procom_pegaprocomutilities.getPublicLinkURL()%> .
