Error Messages

Work Object Not Found

Steps to Reproduce

Not Applicable

Root Cause

User must have privilege to open both parent and child case in order to open a child case.

Pega verified the access role of the user, and user doesn't have access to parent case.


Perform the following local-change step:

Change the access when to allow opening pyWorkCover, so that the parent is opened from child properly and direct opening of parent is blocked.

Refer to the following screenshot and explanation mentioned in the example as well:


'A' contains the actual filter logic. Add 'B' which checks if pyWorkPage.pxCoverInsKey equals pzInsKey (this confirrms if we are trying to open a parent case from a child). As the logic string is A || B, user will be able to open pyWorkCover from child case.
