Out-of-the-box Finish assignment not working in Screen layout



User has configured Out-of-the-box (OOTB) Finish Assignment on click of a button which is placed inside a screen layout. At runtime, the finish assignment does not work.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

1) Create a harness with screen layout.
2) Create a section with dynamic container(section include).
3) Include onclick events defined with OOB Finish Assignment as the action event in the dynamic container section.

Root Cause

Screen Layouts are used to define the structure of a harness included in a composite portal. Containers are the correct structure to use here as they were designed to be used for form transactions.


User must configure container, in order to specify the OOTB finish assignment.
