Can't create new application if UI KIT is categorized as shared



User is facing issue with the new application creation when UI KIT ruleset is defined as a shared ruleset with Pega 7.2.1.

Error Messages

There was an error generating the application . Please contact your system administrator if the problem persists.

A Rule-Application could not be saved due to 7 error(s) on it: pyRuleset of type shared may be not specified in the list .pyRuleSetList(4)

Steps to Reproduce

Define UI KIT as shared rule set and try to create a new application.

Root Cause

This is an expected behavior. A shared ruleset contains a small number of rules that each operate on common top-level page of a single class (or of subclasses of that class).

Note these restrictions:
  • A shared ruleset cannot contain a class rule.
  • Rules must apply to classes that extend existing classes such as the Work- base class and the Data- base class.
Typically, shared ruleset contain only a few rules. The intent is to provide a small group of rules that provide common functions that can be shared among (unrelated) applications. Therefore, select ‘Standard’ RuleSet Type when creating new application.
