Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules.


A permanent solution for this issue is expected to be included in Pega 7.2.2.

​ In the meantime perform the following local-change:

Do a private checkout of this rule - "TracerTraceConnectionListScripts" and add a timeout wrapper around the getConnectionListXML() function to prevent the issue. For example:


setTimeout(function() {
}, 500);

//var strConnectionInfo = getConnectionInfo();
