Validation initiates error message irrespective of value entered



Currency control in the section is sourced by a Decimal property. Irrespective of the value entered, the Validation initiates an error message, and the user is unable to proceed to the next flow action. This occurs post Pega Platform 8.2.2 upgrade to Pega Platform 8.2.5.

Error Messages

<Entered value> is not a valid decimal value

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Use a decimal property in a Currency control.
  2. Add an action on change Post Value.
  3. At runtime, input any number.
  4. Click Submit.

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules.
After the post value action, the formatted value (that is, $123.45) was replaced with the actual value (that is, 123.45).


Perform the following local-change:

Remove the onChange Post Value action (such that, when the flow action is submitted, the value is saved).

This feature is implemented in Pega Platform 8.2.6.
