For Each Embedded Page option not working



Using the For Each Embedded Page option in the Steps tab of the Activity form does not save the activity even when the users provided a list or a group property as a step reference. This seems to be a regression from Pega 7.1.8, the previous release in which this problem did not occur.

Error Messages

Invalid expression or reference: When used with a "For Each Embedded Page" option, the Step page should reference a list or group property

Root Cause

An issue in the custom application codes or rules
Defining page name in the Pages & Classes tab of the activity is mandatory starting with Pega 7.1.9.


Perform the following local-change:
  1. Define pyWorkPage in Pages & Classes. 
  2. Use property.pxResults and define the same in Pages & Classes.

Note: In the Property-Set method, do not use a target property on which a declare expression has already been defined.
See the Pega 7.1.9 Help topic, Activity form -- Completing the Steps tab - Iteration.
