BIX XML generating duplicate skills records in view XML



In the rule form there is only one skill set for operator instance, but while viewing in the view XML, it is gets duplicated in Pega 7.1.8.

Error Messages

Duplicate skills sets are observed.

Steps to Reproduce

1. Open the operator rule record and update the skill set with some values.
2. Now open the view XML of the rule record one can see, duplicate skill set being present.

Root Cause

An issue in the custom application code or rules:

User has customized a trigger '
TrackSecurityChanges', due to which pySkills is being added under 'pyPreviousValues'  for all the operators even if they are new.


Following are the resolution steps, perform either one of the options:

*) Update all the operator records which are existing, as pyPreviousValues is already added to the operator records values will reflect  even if changes were made to the existing code. Then make changes to the trigger 'TrackSecurityChanges' which eliminates the issue with new records.

*) As a secondary solution, the concern is when the values are getting extracted using BIX, instead of using 'getAllProperties' on the extract rule, manually select all the properties to eliminate the pySkills property,if it is not required, to avoid any issues with the same.
