Pega API handles page groups incorrectly



As part of the Pega API enhancement to support UI construction in other applications, the current Pega API handles page groups incorrectly.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Call PegaAPI to post an assignment with a PageGroup in the post body.
  2. Call pzPerformAssignment to test this (Private check out and add the Request, ActionID, and AssignmentID parameters).

    For example,

    Post body is {"content":{"BugDescription":"aa","StepsToReproduce":"bb","Followers":{"stuff":{"Type":"Developer","Name":"","Email":"","FollowerID":""}}}}
    Where Followers is PageGroup.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules.

The work object is saved with the pxObjClass value for the page group property. This is due to the combination of unknown properties on the page and performing page-merge-into.

Below are the four scenarios:

Scenario 1. POST /assignments/{id}?actionID={id} using the object populated with data as the new entry.
Scenario 2. POST /assignments/{id}?actionID={id} using an empty object as the new entry.
Scenario 3. PUT /assignments/{id}/refresh using the object populated with data as the new entry.
Scenario 4. PUT /assignments/{id}/refresh using an empty object as the new entry
