Dropdowns are rendered same set of options



User upgrades Pega 7.2.2 to Pega 8.2.2. Two dropdowns are configured on a section. The two dropdowns are sourced from the same Clipboard page. The Clipboard page fetches the data from an activity by passing parameters. The user passes parameter 1 (for the dropdown 1)and parameter 2 (for the dropdown 2) to an activity. The two dropdowns are rendered different set of options( based on the parameters passed to the activity) on Pega 7.2.2. However, the two dropdowns are rendered the same set of options (options of dropdown 2) on Pega 8.2.2.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create an activity to provide data based on the parameters passed
  2. Create a section with two dropdowns
  3. Source dropdown 1 to the Clipboard page which fetches data by running the activity created in step 1 
  4. Pass parameter 1 to the activity
  5. Source dropdown 2  to the same Clipboard page and activity by passing parameter 2 (to fetch a different data set)

Root Cause

This behavior is as per the Pega product design. User Interface (UI) components are rendered differently on Pega 8.2. The UI components are rendered using the Templating architecture.


Perform the following local-change:  
Use the parameterized data pages for the dropdowns.
