Dirty form pop up rendering when using desktopDefaultView



When attempting to complete a call transfer (using desktopDefaultView('Work','Interaction Manager') to display a portal), a message "Are your sure you want to navigate from the page" on screen is unintentionally displayed.

Error Messages

Not Applicable. 

Steps to Reproduce

1. Create a button to reference a custom section.
1) Use desktopDefaultView('Work','Interaction Manager') in the code of the custom section.

Root Cause

The root cause of this problem is that the interaction form is being closed when values are present. Due to this, a dirty pop up is shown, as an expected behavior.


This issue is resolved by adding the following script in the userworkform:-

if (parent && parent.pega && parent.pega.u && parent.pega.u.d) {

     parent.pega.u.d.gDirtyOverride = false;
pega.u.d.gDirtyOverride = false;
