Used format does not work in reports



For properties with technical codes (for example, property = Symptom, value = 100), 'field value' table type with a reference class and field name are used. These field values contain functional values (for example, 100 = Damaged).

In a Correspondence fragment, a non out-of-the-box format is used to display the functional value. When using the same format in a report, the format does not work.

In the layouts, this works when using the localized field option.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a property with field value reference (property definition).
  2. Create a report using the property in the select list.
  3. Use the format (format definition) on the property or column.
  4. Run the report.

Root Cause

An issue in the custom application code or rules.
Pega does not support localization with field values.


Perform the following local-change:

Add the customized code as a new format:

String localizedLabel = pega_rules_utilities.lookup(
      "pyLocalizedValue", "Rule-Obj-FieldValue", "pyFieldName", 
      pega_rules_utilities.lookup("pyFieldName","Rule-Obj-Property" ,"pyPropertyName",tools.getActive().getName(),tools.getActive().getParentPage().getClassName()),        "pyFieldValue", tools.getActiveValue(), 
      pega_rules_utilities.lookup("pyFieldClass","Rule-Obj-Property" ,"pyPropertyName",tools.getActive().getName(),tools.getActive().getParentPage().getClassName()), 
      "", "true");
