Delegating Data Type



How to delegate a new Data Type form to the users?

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

1. Create a new Data Type.
2. How to make it available for delegation?

Root Cause

Pega 7.1.7 does not provide a standard, built-in mechanism to delegate Data Type.


A new feature is available in Pega 7.1.8, but because this request is immediate, a local-change has been implemented.

Create an Activity that can be called from the user’s portal. The Activity must have the following four steps:

Open the Data Type with the associated class:

Load the Data Type (with the appropriate existing activity), force the source class (with existing property), and finally display the harness (with existing harness).
