Dropdown values 'IN' and 'OR' changes to smaller case



The application uses a drop down to showcase the state names. However, in the dropdown values, the state name starting with 'IN' or 'OR' changes to smaller case 'in' or 'or' at runtime.

Error Messages

Not Applicable.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a dropdown property sourced from a data page
  2. Set the values of the data page such that they consist 'IN', 'OR' words without quote
  3. Run the case. The dropdown values display as 'in', 'or'

Root Cause

A defect or configuration issue in the operating environment.
Pega has some default field values for 'IN' and 'OR' keywords in the application definition class. At runtime, while the values populate in the dropdown, it was localized to the lower case format.


Perform the following local-change: 

Create two field values in the application ruleset and enter IN, OR, without quotes.
