Dump Characters set to the JSON request



Dump characters are set to the JSON request when using the pxConvertPageToString out-of-the-box function.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a main page with a page list.
  2. Convert the main page to a JSON object using pxConvertPageToString out-of-the-box function.

Root Cause

For a few scenarios, JSON object has dump characters (such as alphanumeric characters) instead of attributes.

For example, 

The expected format is: "PropertyrDetails":{"Property1":""4545",""Property2":"xyz"}

However, JSON object is created in the format: {"3":{"Property1":""4545",""Property2":"xyz"}


​​​​Perform the following local-change:

Include the below Java code in the activity instead of the pxConvertPageToString function:

PublicAPI tools = (PegaAPI) ThreadContainer.get().getPublicAPI();

ClipboardPage stepPage = tools.getStepPage();
String retValue = stepPage.getJSON(false);

return retValue;
