Local action preprocessing issue with Bulk Transfer



Preprocessing DataTransform rule mentioned in local-action is not executed when the local-action is launched from Bulk Actions navigation rule.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

1. Log in to Pega 7.1.7 environment
2. Open the flow action, pzBulkProcessingSearch. Mention the pre-processing activity "pzPreBulkProcessing" in it.
3. Run the manager portal and click bulk actions.

Root Cause

The root cause of this problem is a defect in Pegasystems’ code/rules. The proprety, "skipPreProcessingActivity", is set to true by default. This skips the preprocessing activities in the bulk processing.


The PDN article states that the pre-processing is disabled in the bulk processing.
