Report definition custom validation is not working



A filter is defined using a custom section, and has a prompt. When a validation error is displayed the user is still allowed to run the report incorrectly. The activity Code-Pega-List .pzValidateCustomFilterSection step 2 is failing to set message on the right context. Instead of setting on the StepPage it is using as primary page which affects the pyReportContentPage.

Error Messages

Not specific, any validation message.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Run a report
  2. Force an error on the prompt screen and hit submit.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules: Activity Code-Pega-List .pzValidateCustomFilterSection is a final rule in 7.2.1. Making this Rule "Available" allows for customization and correcting this issue.
