Pega include directive is not working in HTML rule



Pega include directive is not working in HTML rule. It is looking for the stream rule in the @baseclass.

Error Messages

Could not find a rule when appending a stream Failed to find instance @baseclass.YYYY of type Rule-HTML-Section.

Steps to Reproduce

1. Create a HTML rule 'XXXX', which uses the pega include directive to include the 'YYYY' in the work class.
2. Create an activity and call Show-HTML to show the 'XXXX'.
3. Run the activity.

Root Cause

StringMap keys = new HashStringMap(); 
keys.putString("pxObjClass", "Rule-HTML-Section"); 
keys.putString("pyStreamName", "SectionName"); 
keys.putString("pyClassName", "ClassName"); 

String stream = tools.getStream(keys, null); 
// Append the stream to 


2. Create an Activity and call the Show-HTML, to call the above HTML rule, using the step page of the work class.
