Autopopulate properties load even when user is not referenced



Auto-populate properties refer to a data page load even when the user is not referenced. As a result, the Clipboard is large and system performance degrades.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create an auto-populate property which refers to a data page in a case class (for example, X- work- Y).
  2. Create another data page which retrieves all the work objects of class X-work- Y using the out-of-the-box LookUp data page created for the same class.
  3. Use the data page created in Step 2 to source a grid on the UI.


An issue in the custom application code or rules.


Attachments is the auto-populate that is referred in an XXX-22 work object. The D_release data page source is the LookUp. Hence, when its parameter is passed as XXX-22, the PxCallObjOpen activity opens the XXX-22 work object which has 'Attachments' property. Therefore, this sequentially loads the data page.
