Refresh section does not work in a flow modal dialog



Updating a value in a modal dialog, does not update Clipboard values. However, a post value or a refresh action is initiated.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a flow in a modal dialog
  2. Add the input fields
  3. On change of input, call the Refresh section

Root Cause

This behavior is as per Pega product design.


Here’s the explanation for the reported behavior: The flow in the modal action creates a new thread, for example, '.../$FlowModalProcess'. The Refresh section action posts to the '.../$FlowModalProcess' thread. Therefore, verify this thread to view the updates.

Explicit submission of the modal dialog, updates the parent thread and Clipboard results.
