Auto populate property data not in sync with data page



Autopopulate property data is not in sync with parameterized data page.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a parameterized data page.
  2. Include a REST-Connector as a data source.
  3. Refer the data page to a page property.
  4. Load the data page to retrieve three list elements as a service and check the page property. The page property contains three list elements.
  5. Load the data page to retrieve two list elements. Check the page property. Page property is loaded with the previous data and includes only three elements.

Root Cause

An issue in the custom application code or rules. 

For parameterized autopopulate properties, the system checks if the parameters have changed or not to perform the clean up of the properties. To perform the check, the system attempts to fetch the old value from the older data page. Since the older data page is removed explicitly, the engine is unable to determine if the parameters have changed. Hence, clean up of the autopopulate property does not occur.


Perform the following local-change to refresh the autopopulate property with new reference data:
  1. Do not remove the data page explicitly.
  2. Use the 'Limit to a single page' option on the data page.
