Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Include a read-only field with a 'DateTime' control in the Case Overview (Case Information) screen.
  2. Set the Read-Only format as Date/Time.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules.

The Pega application added the pyFormatType in the Tools in the pzGenerateFormat. After execution, this can never be reset. The pyAssignmentsUrgencyLabel section renders in the non-template mode and has a Date field which sets the pyFormatType to 'Date'. After this section is executed, every DateTime field is rendered as a date.


This feature is implemented in the following: 
  • Pega Platform 8.2.3.
  • Pega Platform 8.3.1
  • Pega Platform 8.4
