Datapage doesn't yield results when sourced for dropdown in grid



User has configured a repeating grid with dropdown as one column. And the source for the dropdown is a data page. The data page is in turn sourced with an activity. While running through the flow, dropdown gets visible but with no results.

Error Messages

Not applicable

Steps to Reproduce

1)Configure a repeat grid.
2)Drag a section "X"(of Data-) into one of the field in the repeat grid column.
3)Configure a drop down in the inner section "X".
4)Configure the source of drop down as a datapage.
5)Configure the source of datapage as an activity.
6)Now on running the flow, the drop down gets visible, but with no results.

Root Cause

User is assuming that the activity runs in the context of the class in which the repeating grid is configured. Hence, they are trying to achieve results for the data page from grid source class.


The activity which is given as the source of the data page has the context of the data page, not the context of the class in which the repeating grid (dropdown as one column) is configured

Data page type should be List when using it as source for drop down.
