Call Show-Harness from Post Activity of Overlay on ScreenFlow



Developer tries to call a Show-Harness (Review), in a Post Activity of a Local Flow Action which is called from an Overlay.
The current harness calling the Overlay is a TabbedScreenFlow7. The Post Activity is called successfully, including the step with the Show-Harness.
However, the Show-Harness does not show the required harness, the harness remains in the TabbedScreenFlow7.

Error Messages

Not Applicable.

Root Cause

The explanation for this behavior is as follows:
Overlay is not an appropriate target for showing a Harness. Also calling Show-Harness from the post activity configured in the local flow does not replace the current tabbedscreenflow with any other harness


Follow this local-change.
1. Change the target mode to Modal Dailog.
2. Create a section, which is used to ask users to confirm Expense request cancellation.
3. Configure the OK button of the section (created on the above step), to call a Harness.
4. Customize the pyModalSection to remove the Ok and Cancel button.
