Refresh section datatransform not working in offline mobile app



Refresh section data transform fails in an offline mobile application.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Configure a repeating dynamic layout (RDL). The layout which must repeat must contain a dropdown element for which the onChange action is to refresh section after running a data transform.
  2. Add an item to RDL onClick of AddItem.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules.

If the same flow action is referred at multiple places, then the flow action is packaged on the first referred context (this is a product limitation). As a result, the configured flow action is rendered on the incorrect context.

This occurs because of the following:
  1. Refresh section renders on the incorrect context.
  2. Data transform steps are not generated as the data transform is in a different class (myco-data). Here, data transform is running on a different packaged page which does not have properties defined in the data transform.


Perform the following local-change:
  1. Rename the flow action and the sections referred in the flow action.
  2. Use 'Launch local action' on the embedded page (instead of 'Add item').
  3. Use addRDLRow and clearProvidedPage Run scripts on the 'Add Land' link.
  4. Save As the data transform to myco-data-mypage class.
  5. Use the page passed from the Run script of the 'Add Land' link. The page has properties which are used in the data transform.
