Recent Items from different application showing up



There are multiple applications on Pega Platform on this site. When a user who has been given access to more than one application, he/she can see Work Objects in "Recent" on the left hand side from other application.
In other words, the OperatorID is having access to multiple AccessGroups and the "Recent" layout is showing all cases associated with those AccessGroups.

Error Messages

Not applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Login with any user.
  2. Create a Work Object within the current AccessGroup.
  3. Switch to another AccessGroup the user has access to.
  4. in "Recent" layout the previously created Work Object is shown from the original Access Group.

Root Cause

The reported behaviour is actually the expected one. The SECTION called "pyRecents" or more globally the entire "Recent" mechanism doesn't contain AccessGroup restrictions. All Work Objects from all available AccessGroups defined on OperatorID will be considered.


Perform the following local-change:

Modifying WHEN rule called "pyShowRecents" with the following function:
@(Pega-RULES:String).contains(.pyRecordKey, @(Pega-RULES:String).toUpperCase(pxRequestor.pxCurrentWorkPool))

The above provided change will force the system to only present cases from currently selected AccessGroup.
