Connect-File method do not populate operation values on dropdown



Connect-File method is configured with an activity and the operation values do not populate on the dropdown. Since a parameter is mandatory for the Connect-File method, user is unable to use the feature.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a Rule-Connect-File connector that points to a valid path on the server file system
  2. Create an activity that uses step referencing, the Rule-Connect-File rule
  3. Click the drop down for the operation parameter

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules. Issue is due to a parameter in the query string which contains special characters and which might be rejected by latest Tomcat server versions. A logic is added to move the affected parameters to the postbody.


Apply HFix-49243.
