Steps to Reproduce

Not Applicable 

Root Cause

An issue in the custom application code or rules. 


Apply HFix-29082.

This hotfix includes changes so displaying custom properties in the data explorer (while editing a report) is determined based on an available when rule (pyReport_ShowCustomProperties). 

Once the hotfix is installed, copy pyReport_ShowCustomProperties to the local ruleset and make changes to show custom properties as required.
