Steps to Reproduce

  1. Launch interaction portal.
  2. Search with any existing work object.

Root Cause

An issue in the custom application code or rules.

In the user's environment, a node ID on the search landing page is not matching with the node ID on the clipboard system pages > pxRequestor > Node ID. The PR_SYS_SYSTEMNODES table has two entries. The clipboard node ID and ID in the table. The search page node ID needs to be changed.


Perform the following local-change:
  1. Delete the current node configuration on the search landing page.
  2. Add a new node configuration with the node ID matching as per the node on clipboard system pages > pxRequestor > Node ID.
  3. Submit the changes.
  4. Log out of the application.
  5. Re-check the configuration using the 'Check' button. Verify that 'Rule index File Unavailable or Corrupted' is not getting displayed.
  6. Re-execute the indexing for ALL, DATA and WORK.
  7. Search for the WorkObject.
  8. Check the results and verify by clicking the link from the search result.
