Asterisk symbol does not display on mandatory fields



Post upgrade to Pega 8.2.2, the asterisk symbol does not display for mandatory fields. This occurs randomly for certain properties.

Error Messages

Not Applicable.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Upgrade from Pega 7.2.1 to Pega 8.2.2
  2. Log in to the application
  3. Configure a few fields with 'Required' condition set to 'Always'
  4. Run the flow. Certain fields do not display the Asterisk symbol

Root Cause

The pyReqRunOnClient property is set to True in the XML. This should be ignored when the 'Required' condition is set to 'Always'.


Perform one of the following local changes:
  • Delete the cell from the section and recreate the cell
  • Add a condition to the 'Required' condition that always returns true
