Grid filtering is not working for embedded sections



There is a repeatgrid with one of the column that contains Embedded section in it. As per the requirement Sort and filter options are enabled on all the columns. These functionalities are working fine for all other columns except for the column where section is embedded.
User tries to leverage the option to retain the sorting and filtering capabilities by providing a property in the "Select a property that will be used to sort and filter this column by value" field.

This works fine, if they use it only for sorting and set Filtering to None.

When Filtering option is set to Auto, it encounters an error that prevents from saving the section which looks like the system is trying to find a property with the same name as the section.

Error Messages

This record has 1 error
Cells in a Row: ** "Embedded section name" is not a valid property

Steps to Reproduce

1. Create a section with a repeat grid.
2. In one of the cell, drop a section and then enable sorting/filtering for this column by specifying Sort/filter property; whose name is different from the name of the section.
3. Try to save the section -  this results in an error.

Root Cause

The root cause of this problem is a defect in Pegasystems’ code/rules.
This issue occurs if the name of the embedded section is same as the name of any property used for other columns in repeat grid.


This issue is scheduled to be resolved in update release ML8.
