Trailing spaces are trimmed while pulling records from data list



The trailing spaces are trimmed while pulling records from a data list using the Waterfall segment. This does not occur on non-visual segments. As a result, there is a difference in population count in the these two segments. 

Error Messages


Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a segment
  2. Create a filter condition using 'in List' from the Waterfall criteria
  3. Choose "DPPO" and "DPPO " from the system. Two values are selected though they display without spaces

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules.


Perform one of the following local-changes:
  • Use the 'Starts with' comparator instead of the 'In List' 
  • Use the 'Search exact' comparator with a comma separated list of values and include both the values. For example, "DPPO", "DPPO"
