"System" cannot be a valid party



After having migrated from PRPC 5 to Pega 7.1.9, the WorkObject creation using SLA agent is not working. 
It was working fine in PRPC 5 and apparently not working anymore on Pega 7.1.9.

Error Messages

Not Applicable.

Steps to Reproduce

1) Send a task to an Agent. The agent creates a new case.
3) Add the originator as a party into the case.
4) Observe that the case will not be created.

Root Cause

This behaviour is due to the new validation within activity Data-Admin-Operator.WorkPartyRetrieve in Pega-ProcessEngine : 07-10-19.

Within the first step there is a check if the created WorkParty is having the value “System” as Data-Party.pyWorkPartyUri:



The behavior reported here is the expected one.
Create an OperatorID called "System" is not allowed and having a party added to the case as "System" is not the best practice.
The code is less permissive now and this is why the case does not get created.
