Properties are missing in declare expression



After migration from 6.2 sp1 to 7.1.6, If there are when conditions, in a declare expression, that has properties of the format -> .cData.noteData.InsuredData(1).fullName. (embeded properties basically), then they are not visible. However if we open xml of the declare expression they are present. 

Error Messages


Steps to Reproduce

Create declare expressions with when conditions which uses embeded properties, in prpc 62sp1. 
Migrate it to 716. 
Then open the declare expression in 716

Root Cause

The root cause of this problem is a defect in Pegasystems’ code/rules. In step 6 of activity Embed-UserFunction. pzPopulateDropdownFBUIParameters_DeclareExp, code determines values of parameters passed to corresponding functions. This parsing logic had flaw as it always used to depend on lastIndexOf("(") to be the one which denotes start of list of parameters list in given expression ex: in this @(Pega-RULES:ExpressionEvaluators).evaluateWhen("AddWorkAllowed") it would have been "(" before "Add" and thus works. 
This failed in scenarios like @(Pega-RULES:Utilities).PropertyHasValue(tools, ".pgprop(1).prop1") where last index of "(" was actually inside a parameter's value.
