Multiselect control does not work in a filter custom section



Multiselect control in the section, which is embedded in a report definition, does not work.

Error Messages

Not Applicable.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Configure a Multiselect control in a Section rule

  2. Reference the section in a report definition. for example, Data-Admin-Operator-IDpyInstanceList (on Report Viewer tab) on custom filter section

  3. Run the Report Definition. The Multiselect control grays out, only the label displays, other fields display as expected

  4. Call the same section inside a flow action. It works correctly


Root Cause

This is as per Pega Product design. Multiselect control is not supported in a non-templated setup.


Perform the following local-change:
  1. Create a TestUpperSection wrapper section, and make it non-auto that is, in the HTML tab uncheck the Auto-generated HTML checkbox
  2. Add the below code:

    <pega:include name="TestSection" type="Rule-HTML-Section"/>

  3. Save the rule
  4. Navigate to report definition > Report Viewer tab
  5. Open Display custom section inline area and in the field name enter the wrapper section name, TestUpperSection
