Defer Load option not available for section includes



Defer load option is not available for section includes.

Error Messages

Not applicable.

Steps to Reproduce

Create a Section Include in a harness.

Root Cause

Defer Load is only available for Layouts, not Section Includes, and only for layouts with the following conditions:
  • Smart Layout or Freeform Layout
  • "Display header and title" checked
  •  "Header Type" set to "Collapsible
  •  "Expanded on Load" unchecked


for more information on Defer Load.


Enclose the section in a Smart or Freeform Layout. 

Alternatively, if the included section itself has a Smart or Freeform Layout that has the conditions above true and is set to Defer Load, that setting will be respected.
