Need to validate custom filter section on submit



When a custom filter section is used for a report definition, there is no way to call a Validate rule to validate the initial filter values when "Prompt for filter changes before displaying report" is enabled.

Error Messages

Not applicable

Steps to Reproduce

Enable "Prompt for filter changes before displaying report" on a report definition.
There is no way to call a Validate rule for the initial filter values (all rules are final).

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules. No extension point exists.


Apply Hfix-35159. This adds an available activity pyCustomValidator, from which a custom Validate rule can be called.
