Unable to Save As circumstanced report definition in User portal



Error occurs when saving a circumstanced report definition through the report browser in the User portal. This works when using Designer Studio.

Error Messages

.pyCircumstanceVal: This Rule cannot be created: it is qualified by a Circumstance, Circumstance Date, or Date Range; but no default version exists 

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a circumstanced report definition.
  2. Add it in the report browser.
  3. Open the User portal.
  4. Access the report definition which is circumstanced through report browser.
  5. Provide a Category and Save As the report definition.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules.
Circumstance report cannot be saved as a new report in the portal. When a report is circumstanced, it adds additional properties to the report Clipboard page. When a report is Saved As, validation fails due to these additional properties.
In the pzRRSaveAS activity, a Java step must be added such that it removes the circumstance properties from the report definition primary page.


Apply HFix-48007.
