Flow action label is not refreshing properly



Issue is correct flow action label is not displayed at run time instead another flow action name is rendered on the screen. This behaviour is seen post upgrade.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Have main flowaction, on it have an preprocessing activity(same as PerformPreProcessing ootb activity) defined which is used to set the TaskStatus and other properties.
  2. Expection is when flow action runs the flow task name set in the preprocessing activity is to be displayed but initiallly the main flow action name is rendered on the screen and when a refresh is performed then the correct flow name is displayed.

Root Cause

The user was changing the FlowAction through pre processing activity.


By the time the flowaction was called the pyActionlabel was already being set. In the Pre processing of the flow action user was calling another flowaction. In PRPC 5.4 user there was pzActionDropdown to display local actions which was realoding after the section was rendered completely.

In Pega 7 pyActionArea we are not using pzActionDropdown and hence requested user to change their configuration
