“Reassign by” not appearing on the screen



After installing HFix-32212, the pyAssignmentListGadget has information missing from the display.

Error Messages

No error messages. The display should look like this:

but instead looks like this:

The icons are missing, as well as the text which is in the pyInstructions property. In addition, the "Assigned To" column has incorrect info.

Steps to Reproduce

Use text in pyInstructions and have it populated on the pxFlow page but not the newAssignPage.

In step 1 of the activity pyPopulateCaseContents, there is a sequence of code which examines various properties for their presence or absence.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules.

If any of the properties are missing from the pxFlow page, this is not an error; however, the activity will then attempt to re-run a Report Definition to recreate the missing properties.

For this use case, the properties had values on the pxFlow page but were missing those values on the newAssignPage.

The Report Definition runs off of the newAssignPage, and not the pxFlow page.


Perform the following local-change:

Ensure that any properties which might be present on the pxFlow page and are in the sequence of "checks" in step 1 are also present and populated on the newAssignPage.

In addition, in order to ensure that the icons do not go missing, it is necessary to make a custom version of pyPopulateCaseContents and add the indicated additional setting to the Property-Set of both step 4 and step 7:
