Repetitive embedded page in REST service request



Embedded page is created repetitively in a Service-REST request.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a REST service with the POST method
  2. Run the service. The page structure is created at runtime.

Root Cause

Classless page is created in the Clipboard when an inappropriate request body is sent to the Service-REST .

For example,

Actual Body Request


Modified Request


A pageless object, 'Person', is created in the Clipboard.


Here's the explanation for the reported behavior:

JSON mapping in Service-REST rule creates virtual properties. If it does not find a matching physical property,  a classless page is created. To avoid classless pages, the page property configured in the Service-REST rule must include the data model that is created in it. This data model must be identical to the incoming JSON keys hierarchy.
