Create new record failed after upgrade conversion of data tables



Users upgraded to Pega 7 and there was an attempt to convert data tables to data types. When users tried to add or update records in a recently converted data table, they see the error message "Create new record failed" . This occurs for only a few data tables.

Error Messages

Create new record failed:pxCreateRecord API failed.

Steps to Reproduce

Try adding a new record in data tables.

Root Cause

Some data tables had problems using the existing table during the conversion. The four (4) properties (columns) listed below were missing:
  • pzPVStream
  • pxCommitDateTime
  • pxSaveDateTime
  • pyRuleSetName


Perform the following local-change:

Create the four (4) missing columns in the data table as shown in this example SQL statement:

ALTER TABLE dbo.pr_my_data_table ADD pzPVStream BLOB NULL, pxCommitDateTime DATE NULL, pxSaveDateTime DATE NULL, pyRuleSetName VARCHAR (64) NULL;
