Root Cause

The feature was missing because the below condition was not satisfied in pzRuntimeToolsInclude;

<pega:when name="pzIsPegaExpress">
            <pega:when test="pyDisplayExpressEditOptions && pyDisplayExpressTopBar">
                <% tools.putParamValue("isEditOptionsEnabled", "true");
                   tools.putParamValue("displayRuntimeToolbar", "true"); %>
            <pega:when name="pxUserHasDeveloperPortalAccess">
                <%  tools.putParamValue("displayRuntimeToolbar", "true");%>
                <%  tools.putParamValue("displayRuntimeToolbar", "false");%>

pyDisplayExpressEditOptions is true by default

However, pyDisplayExpressTopBar from Data-Portal class requires the user to have the role of ExpressUser and ExpressMgrTools (either the framework CustomerService level or Application level)

HasExpressUserRole > Lib(Pega-RULES:Default).HaveRole(this,"CS:ExpressUser") or Lib(Pega-RULES:Default).HaveRole(this,Application.pyProductName+":ExpressUser")
AND  (note the boolean condition)
HasExpressManagerToolsRole > Lib(Pega-RULES:Default).HaveRole(this,Application.pyProductName+":ExpressMgrTools")  or   Lib(Pega-RULES:Default).HaveRole(this,"CS:ExpressMgrTools")

However, in the Clipboard, application.pyProductName displayed as Application1

As a result, the condition,


resolved to the below,


Whereas, the user had the Application2:ExpressMgrTools role.





resolved to the below,


The user had the Application2:ExpressUser role.


Perform either of the following local-changes:
  • Add the CS:ExpressUser and CS:ExpressMgrTools roles to the access group.
  • Create and add the Application1:ExpressUser and Application1:ExpressMgrTools roles cloned from CS:ExpressUser and CS:ExpressMgrTools respectively.
