IAC "getGadgetData" action does not work



When getGadgetData is called to retrieve the operator ID inside another activity, the getGadgetData call never happens.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

Use "getGadgetData" action.

For example:

var opName = pega.web.api.doAction("CreateWork", "getGadgetData", ".pxCreateOpName");

Root Cause

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


When imbedding gadgets into PRPC portals for testing include only the PegaCompositeGadgetMgr, the rest are already present.

<pega:static type="script" app="webwb" >
  <pega:file name="PegaCompositeGadgetMgr.js" />



Change gadget code to only include PegaCompositeGadgetMgr.js. This resolves the issue with getGadgetData.

Note: Remember that getGadgetData requires the usage of Data Fields.
