ORA-00904: "PXCOVERINSKEY": invalid identifier DatabaseException



A structure is created to designate an overall parent case type with a child case type which itself may contain at least one case type. When creating the parent case instance, the subsequent creation of a child instance prevents the retrieval of the pxCoverInskey from the database.

Error Messages

There was a problem getting a list: code: 904 SQLState: 42000 Message: ORA-00904: "PXCOVERINSKEY": invalid identifier DatabaseException caused by prior exception: java.sql.SQLSyntaxErrorException: ORA-00904: "PXCOVERINSKEY": invalid identifier | SQL Code: 904 | SQL State: 42000

Steps to Reproduce

Create a structure to designate an overall parent case type with a child case type.

Root Cause

Since the table in which the child cases data gets stored was customized, it did not have the column to contain the pxCoverInskey for the child case.


Perform the following local-change:

Create a new column in the table to store the pxCoverInskey of the child case in the table.
