Steps to Reproduce



Attempt to update Property-Set step references in an activity for the properties generated by the Connector Wizard.


Root Cause



The root cause of this problem is a defect in Pegasystems’ code/rules. This issue is caused by incorrect parsing of property names by the engine. A page level property generated by the interface wizard had the string 'Param' in the middle of it. For example, the property was named "AccountLookupParamRequest". The engine found the string 'Param' in the middle of the property name and thought this was a parameter reference instead. This lead to the StringIndexOutOfBoundsException starting at the string 'Param'.


Resolution



This issue is resolved through the following local change: The generated property name was changed to eliminate the string 'Param'. For example, the rule was changed from "AccountLookupParamRequest" to "AccountLookupPmRequest".
