Finish assignment does not execute the first time



A button is configured with two actions, Refresh other Section with a property set and Finish assignment execution based on a When rule based on the property set in the first action. Finish assignment does not execute the first time.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Add a button to the section.
  2. Configure the button with two actions: the Refresh other Section and the Finish Assignment based on When condition.

Root Cause

An issue in the custom application code or rules. The updated value was not retrieved as the property was not available in the Document Object Model (DOM).


Perform the following local-change:
  1. Add the required property in the section.
  2. Set the custom CSS to display:none. This hides the property from the UI, however, the property still persists in the DOM.
