Sorting grid does not maintain key value for link control



User is facing issue where grid sorting is not updating the key values for link.

A repeating grid is scoured directly from data page.

In the repeating grid column a Link property is configured.

The link property copies the value to another property upon clicking on, using an activity. After sorting if we click on any particular row instead of that particular row some other row value is getting passed.

Suppose there are 3 row values as below:


and after sorting, the values are:


then if user clicks on Row3 the Row1 key value is getting passed.

It seems like rehashing is not happening after sorting.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

1.Source a repeating grid from data page.

2.Use Link control for one of the column property in repeating grid

3.Configure a actionset upon clicking the link column to copy the value to another property.

4.Observe the value passed after sorting and clicking on a particular row.

Root Cause

User is using "Reload once per interaction" refresh strategy for the data page when clicking on the link after sorting the list is getting refreshed and maintaining the unsorted fresh list.


User is suggested to either not to use "Reload once per interaction" or just to source the repeating grid with report definition.
