quote function is used without using library name



The options are not popluated for few of the drop downs of ootb HTML Data-Portal .pyMyProcessActions (Bulk action) rule, hence the dropdown does not render any option for user  to select from the screen. 

Error Messages

Observed following error in log:
Please be more specific when calling this function by providing library and ruleset.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Launch User portal
  2. Click process work tab
  3. Check  “Bulk process by work type” dropdown, you will find no options to select.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules :
 User is calling pxGetAvailableWorkClasses activity to get workpool information and to populate thedropdown, HTML Data-Portal .pyMyProcessActions is used.

The issue is due to the errors thrown in the pxGetAvailableWorkClasses activity, the reason is @quote function is used in pxGetAvailableWorkClasses activity  without a library name. 

Full syntax for calling a function, Example- @(RuleSet:libraryname).functionname(arg1, arg2... argn) is to be used.
If changes are made to this in the actvity then it works as expected.


Apply HFix-30166
Description of Changes:
Need to update step2 and step6 of pxGetAvailableWorkClasses activity to provide full namespace for quote function. 

@(Pega-RULES:Default).quote(.pyClassName)Tried to modify @(Pega-RULES:Default).quote(String)
Additional Installation Instructions:
Logoff and login
