Steps to Reproduce

  1. Integrate FileNet with PRPC 6.2 SP2.
  2. Delete an attachment using the trash icon from the attachment list in the work object Audit tab.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems' code or rules:
The attachment is deleted, but the code tries to delete it again. This ends up failing and leaves the link on the work object.


Perform the following local-change:
Save the Work-.DeleteAttachment activity to ruleset, and comment out steps 11 and 12.

Note: This issue is resolved in PRPC 6.3.
