Refresh other section is not working from a pop-up window



In Pega 7.2, user has configured a section with a repeating grid (Say Section1).

On click of a row on the repeating grid, user launches a harness. This harness contains a button which calls "Refresh-Other" Section( In this case "Section1" ).

The refresh action is not working when configured on the harness.

Error Messages

Not applicable

Steps to Reproduce

1) Create a section with repeating grid. 
2) Launch a "Harness" on click of the repeating grid.  The harness embeds an container that contains a button. 
3) Configure a "Refresh-Other Section" on the button. 

Root Cause

This behavior is as per design. The Refresh other section action works only within the purview of a single Harness.

A Harness represents a single DOM window. The AJAX request for the Section refresh has to be within the scope of the DOM window.


The reported behaviour is expected.
