Unable to upgrade list views with custom getContent reference



After upgrading PRPC 6.1 sp2 to Pega 7.2, developers ran the upgrade utility to convert Listviews and Summary views into Report Definitions.  However, the upgrade utility is not working for those reports where the getContent activity was updated.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

Attempt to use the upgrade utility to upgrade a Listview which contains a customized getContent activity.

Root Cause

This is expected behavior. The upgrade utility can only operate on List Views without customized getContent activities.


Manual intervention is required for this upgrade - one must manually create a report definition that fills the same business requirements as the original list view in order to replace the deprecated listview which utilized a custom getContent activity.
