Section with Edit options such as Auto becomes read-only



Section with Edit options such as Auto becomes read-only during the run time.


Error Messages

Not Applicable


Steps to Reproduce

  1. Configure a section in Repeating Dynamic Layouts (RDL).
  2. Set one of the included sections in the RDL to the Read-only mode.


Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules.

If the RDL's repeating section contains any section that is set to Read-only Always followed by another section that is Auto/Rad-only, then all the sections in the RDL becomes read-only.

This issue occurs when the Templating option is enabled. When the Templating option is enabled, the section included uses a different piece of code and fails to clear the sectionReadOnly paramater.



This issue is addressed in Pega Platform 8.6.
