Data page does not update after an obj-save



In Pega 7.1.8, data pages loaded through report definitions, which are then referenced by various properties, do not reflect updates following an obj-save (write-now) operation.
In Pega 7.1.6, these updates were reflected in the properties following a obj-save (write-now) operation.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a property that is populated from a data page.
  2. Have the data page populated from a report definition on a data table.
  3. In a flow action post processing activity, write to the data table, and save the record with write-now.
  4. Immediately following the flow action, run a decision shape in the flow that evaluates the property.
  5. Ensure that the evaluation should return true, based on the previously saved record.
  6. Notice that the evaluation will actually return false, because the data page will not return the value from the updated data table.

Root Cause

The behavior in Pega 7.1.6 was incorrect. The behavior seen in Pega 7.1.8 is the correct sequence of events.


The data page is loaded in an interaction and then obj-save is performed but then another load-datapage is initiated, which is performed in same interaction. Since these actions occur within the same interaction, the originally loaded data page should be returned instead of reloaded.
