Property-Ref method issue



User reported that Property-Ref method is utilizing CPU intensively.
Clipboard size is growing when property reference is used.
HasMessages has poor performance on heavier clipboard pages.

Error Messages

Not Applicable.

Steps to Reproduce

Use Page-Clear-Message and Property-Ref methods.

Root Cause

hasMessages() API is taking lot of time because of  auto-populate chaining.

Refer below article for more details:


Apply HFix-27388 to resolve the issue.

Hotfix includes the following changes:

1. Added a new DSS flag disableAutoPopulateForHasMessages
2. In recalculateAndSave activity disabled autopopulate while calling hasMessages() and restore the previous value again after that based on the above flag. 
3. Changed the hasMessages RUF to disable autopopulate and restore after that based on the above flag.
For the hotfix to take effect, create a DSS with name 'disableAutoPopulateForHasMessages' in 'Pega-RULES' ruleset and set it to 'true'.
