Tracksecuritychanges does not handle pagelist copy



TrackSecurityChanges does not add a manually appended pagelist entry as a new addition. This pagelist is added with a copy to the new DataTransform, which copies page(1) and forms Page(2) of the list. Instead of TrackSecurityChanges identifying the pagelist as a new addition, it captures the value change from XX to YY.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Run the Case type.
  2. Add a row in the table.
  3. Click Save. The message 'Added value XYZ' displays in the Audit.
  4. Click the Copy button. 
  5. Click Save. The message 'Changed value from XYZ to ABC' displays in the Audit. 

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules.
While copying the page, the pxTrackingIndex and the pyPropertyIndex properties which are responsible for tracking were also copied. Hence, logic considered that the property was already added and now it was changing the value.


Perform the following local-change:

After copying the page in the pagelist, remove the pxTrackingIndex and pyPropertyIndex properties from the newly added page in the pagelist.
