Can't perform sorting on column error in List View after Upgrade



After upgrade to Pega 7.2.2 from PRPC 6.2 SP2, new dialogue box is opening with the error message when user tries to sort the few columns in the List View.

Error Messages

Cannot perform sorting on this column

Steps to Reproduce

1. Create a List View with Pagination enabled and sort mode is All Pages in PRPC 6.2 SP2.
2. Upgrade it Pega 7.2.2.

Root Cause

List views and summary views are deprecated in the latest versions of Pega, it is recommended to use Report Definition.


Use Report Definition-backed Repeat Grids instead of Embedded List Views to take advantage of the latest HTML5 capabilities including cross-browser and cross-platform compatibility, access to the latest HTML markup, and improved performance.
