AutoComplete JSP tag does not work



User has configured AutoComplete control using JSP tags. When using the activity Data-Admin-Operator-ID.getOperatorsID the drop-down list is not displayed.

Error Messages

Not Applicable.

Steps to Reproduce

 Create an AutoComplete Control as below in an html rule and refer it in a section.


highlight="true" size="50"
listingWidth="100" minChars="2">

<pega:acDataSource name="wg" type="Activity"


partialSearch="true" ignoreCase="true"
maxResults="true" allFields="false"


Root Cause

To make the autocomplete code work with JSP tags work one must include the autocomplete variable html fragment rule in the html rule

<pega:include name="AutoComplete_Variables" type="Rule-HTML-Fragment" />


Include the below in the HTML Rule where Autocomplete rule is configured. 

<pega:include name="AutoComplete_Variables" type="Rule-HTML-Fragment" />

Additionally, any activity, which takes a param value in the filter criteria, did not work. So it was suggested to use another Activity Data-Admin-Operator-ID .GetOperators.
