Error Messages


Not Applicable


Steps to Reproduce

Include the out-of-the-box pyActionDropdownSection section in one of the harnesses and observe during the runtime.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules. The pyActionDropdownSection section contains a free form layout with the non autogenerated pzActionDropdown control. However, the section which renders fails due to the free form layout that is used in the templatized section. 


This issue was reported as a bug to be remediated in Pega 8.1.7 patch release.
