Connect REST fails to map using property qualifier



Connect REST fails to map using property qualifier pzExternalName set to "preferences" for "WalletPreferences" property.  
Trying to use pzExternalName due to existence of property "preferences" in base class as page rather than page list.


Error Messages

Caught exception: Error mapping incoming response to .Test_Response: The property TestPage.Test_Response.preferences was of mode Page while was expecting Page List mode. 

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a connect-rest rule and invoke service which returns preferences of type list in JSON object.
  2. Create a property name WalletPreferences and provide a qualifier pzExternalName with preferences.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules.  The pzExternalName property reference is not being used for embedded list.


Remove the existing "preferences" property since pzExternalName is not remapping the external list name to the new name, as expected.
