Data model gadget cannot reference existing form sections



The 'Data model' gadget cannot reference existing customer context form sections. User is on Pega 7.1.7. If an end-user wishes to define a form section containing the same set of properties for many products, they must define a new identical section for each product. This results in much duplicated effort and is not acceptable to the end-user. The section is created in the same class: PegaFS-Data-Party-Ind but user wants to know why can’t they be shared?

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

1. Take any product and create a form section; generate the UI.
2. Use designer studio to look for it. Since this is an inherited base class it should be possible to re-use this in other products. However the UI does not allow this.
3. This is because there is no autocomplete on this field.
4. For this to work the referenced form fields and their mapped properties would also need to be present.

Root Cause

Submitted product enhancement request item BUG-205783.
The request is to provide a feature to reuse existing Sections when the user creates UI for the new product under same category.


This issue will be resolved in new release planned for OBFS 7.13.
