Steps to Reproduce

There is no specific use case to reproduce this issue.

Root Cause

The PegaInternetApplicationComposer.js file should not be used when testing gadgets within PRPC portals. The PegaInternetApplicationComposer.js is a static content bundle containing the following Rule-File-Text Javascript files:


When imbedding gadgets into PRPC portals for testing, you only need to include the PegaCompositeGadgetMgr, the rest are already there.
