Create Case smart shape not changing class name



When trying to extend the Appeals and Grievances framework into a custom built framework, a flow for creating a case and sub-case using the Create Case smart shape is failing to pick up the pxObjClass specified on the pagelist.

Error Messages

Not Applicable 

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Run the DetermineComplaint flow from the implementation application.
  2. Observe the spun off cases use the base framework class (PegaHC-AG-Work-Appeal) and not the pxObjClass value set on the pagelist.

Root Cause

An issue in the custom application code or rules. To dynamically set the child class, the Case Type option on the Create Case shape must be set to "other" and specified to match the property of interest. 


Perform the following local-change:
Update the Case Type property on the configuration form of the Create Case shape to align with the dynamically ​set property of interest.
