Issue on sorting repeating grid and deleting a row



A repeating grid is sourced from a data page. A delete icon is configured for each row. Sorting the grid and deleting the row, deletes the row that existed before the sort and not the selected row.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Source a repeating grid from a data page.
  2. Add a Delete button in a column to display the confirmation screen in the modal dialog with the Cancel and Delete buttons.
  3. Sort one of the columns on the grid.
  4. Click the Delete button.

Root Cause

This behavior is as per Pega product design.


Here’s the explanation for the reported behavior:

The Grid Delete item deletes the record from the clipboard (not from the database).
To delete the record from the database, a call activity must be configured and the updated details saved to the database.
