REST response needs to use property qualifier pzExternalName



As a developer on 7.1.7, you need to control the mapping between JSON element names and property names in Pega. You have added a property qualifier named "pzExternalName" on one of the target properties in Pega but Designer Studio is not allowing the save.

Error Messages

Steps to Reproduce

From advanced tab of Edit Property rule form for property named "sampleProp", add a new qualifier named "pzExternalName" and set it to the JSON element named expected in responses being mapped.

Root Cause

The pzExternalName functionality was introduced in Pega 7.1.8 but is available to 7.1.7 through a hotfix.
