Unable to generate fields for pagelists in PDF from e-form



Unable to generate PDF elements for pagelists while creating a PDF from e-form.

Error Messages

Not Applicable.

  1. Log in to the application
  2. Create an e-form rule and e-form map rule
  3. Run the flow. An option to dynamically populate data from e-form for list values is not present

Root Cause

This is as per Pega Product design.


Here's the explanation for the reported behavior:

E-form rule uses iText API to set the fields that are already present on the PDF form. It does not allow to add a list dynamically in the PDF form. The rule refers to the field by ID, so there is no way to generate fields for dynamic list in the PDF using e-form.
