Incorrect updation of child cases



A parent flow is configured with a Wait shape to wait until an AccessChild case reaches Pending-Authentication. After the Wait shape, the Update a case shape is used to update the case status of child cases using a data transform. The Wait shape is processed successfully. However, the child cases are updated incorrectly. The issue occurs when the cases are processed by users with different access groups such that the ProcessFlowDependencies agent processes the dependency.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create parent and child cases
  2. Perform an action that updates the AccessChild case to Pending-Authentication

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules. The pzProcessIndividualDepAssignment activity uses findPageByHandle, however, the activity does not verify if the Clipboard page returned is the correct Work page.


This issue is addressed in the Pega 8.2.6 patch release.
