Edit Option 'ReadOnly' doesn't propagate to child section



A common section is added in two different sections. While one is editable, the other is read-only. When the refresh section is triggered, the read-only section becomes editable.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Add a common section in two different parent sections (the section in pycaseinformation is read-only by default). 
  2. In this section, configure a field onChange of which Refresh is triggered. 

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules.
When refresh is triggered, the read-only flag is removed.


An enhancement request, FDBK-28723, is created for consideration by Pega Product Management.
