Error: This rule already has a circumstanced property defined



An error occurred when trying to Save As any out-of-the-box harness, which is circumstanced to user-application rulesets.

Error Messages

pyCircumstanceProp-This rule already has a circumstanced property defined (MobileDevice); you cannot give it another.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Log into Designer Studio.
  2. Switch to any application with open ruleset, for example CPMApp application.
  3. Save As any circumstanced version of a rule like Perform harness rule of Class PegaCA-Work into application rule set.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules due to the design limitation. Circumstance rules cannot be defined with two different properties even if the two circumstanced rules are in different rulesets or application.
