There was a problem getting a list: code: 904 SQLState: 42000



Usage of pyTextValue in the value field for the Obj-Browse method fails.

Error Messages

There was a problem getting a list: code: 904 SQLState: 42000 Message: ORA-00904: "PYTEXTVALUE": invalid identifier

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a test activity on Pega 7.3.1.
  2. Create a step with Obj-Browse with a property in a condition (such as, .pyPurpose Is Not Equal .pyTextValue).

    For example, browse Data-Admin-System-Settings class with a condition such as, .pyPurpose Is Not Equal .pyTextValue.

  3. Run this activity without specifing a value for .pyTextValue.

Root Cause

A software use or operation error. The pyTextValue is used in the value field.


Here’s the explanation for the reported behavior:

pyTextValue is a Value List. Hence, pyTextValue(1) or pyTextValue(2) must be used instead of just pytextValue.
