Error Messages


Root Cause

The root cause of this problem is a defect in Pegasystems’ code/rules.

An extra hyphen is there on a newly created case's class when the parent class is an abstract class.
If you have abstract class with hyphen at end ( much like an imported class from a lower environment ) With pattern inheritance as class with dash (abstract class), then the generated class has an extra Dash :-

Case class ( created by system) >> SAE-ABC-Work-Abstract--DashCase
Abstract class parent >> SAE-ABC-Work-Abstract-


Ran the rename  class wizard to remove the extra hyphen.
