Steps to Reproduce

Open a strategy rule in Designer Studio and the Pega Marketing Portal.

Root Cause

Issue 1: This is due to a difference between the designer studio and PegaMarketing portal skins.

The PegaMarketing skin is based on the pyEndUser skin from the UI Kit and does not exactly replicate everything from the Designer Studio skin.

As shown below one can see that the format “Simple List” which is used by the section where the labels are missing specifies that the labels should be positioned left in the designer studio, but in the PegtaMarketing skin are hidden (none).

Issue 2 is due to a missing font.


Perform the following local-changes:

Issue 1: Missing text input Labels

It is not recommended to update the PegaMarketing skin label position for SimpleList as this will likely have an impact on various other parts of the portal where the label are intended to be hidden.

The solution here would be to override the standard pyExternalInputRunConfig section and change the format of the Dynamic Layout to something else that has the labels in both skins, for example, “Stacked” should work.

Issue 2: Link image for strategy pallet.

This issue is caused the font that has been specified has not been loaded.

A local change that corrects this would be to include the px-pega-default-icons style sheet as the second row in the PegaMarketing skin rule as shown below.

Both of these issues will be addressed in a future release of Pega Marketing.
