Starting flows are not updated when importing rules



The starting flow labels are not updated when migrated to another environment.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a starting flow and import the flow in another environment.
  2. Confirm the label displays correctly in the New menu in both environments.
  3. Save a copy of the flow in a higher ruleset version and change the flow label.
  4. Import the new flow version in another environment. The new environment still displays the original flow label; however, if you run the flow the proper version is executed.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules.


Apply HFix-34106.

The PopulateStartingFlowsForApplication and PopulateStartingFlowsByWorkPool activities can be run to update the data instances with the new flow names until the hotfix can be installed to address the underlying issue.
