Steps to Reproduce

1. Login to PRPC 7.1.8
2. Launch Refactor Ruleset and select Skim a Ruleset.
3. Select any Ruleset.
4. Provide new ruleset version.
5. Then Skim.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems code or rules. The skimming logic is using a prepared statement to fetch the records to be skimmed. The same .pyPreparedValues page is used to pass the prepared statement parameters for a set of queries executed in a for loop.

When prconfig/security/showSQLInListPage is set to false, .pyPreparedValues page is removed from clipboard before executing the query. So, when the first query is executed, this page is removed and for subsequent queries the prepared values are not correctly set. So, only Rule-Obj-Property types are skimmed and rest is ignored.


Perform the following local-change:

Set showSQLInListPage to true, so that .pyPreparedValues page is not cleared from memory.
