Pre-processing activity in flow action executes in offline mode



A pre-processing activity in a flow action executes in the offline mode. This occurs when using a mobile application.

Error Messages

Not Applicable.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Define an activity as a pre-processing action on a flow action
  2. Configure a Property-Set in the activity to set a property. For example, pyLabel
  3. Log in to the mobile application and create a work object
  4. Load this flow action. The pyLabel on the work object is updated, as the pre-activity is executed

Root Cause

This is as per the Pega Mobility product design. If a pre-activity is specified on the flow action which is on the first shape of the flow, it is packaged or executed by default on the mobile application. This does not apply to subsequent flow action shapes in the flow.


Perform the following local-change:
  1. Use the below When rule to skip the activity on the first step of the flow action:!pega.getPackageRuntime().isDeltaSync()
  2. Exit the activity in the first activity step
