Error Messages



NA


Steps to Reproduce



Add a custom section for filtering in ListView and make a field required. When listview is executed and value in required field is not provided, system still brings up the results.


Root Cause



The root cause of this problem is a defect in Pegasystems’ code/rules. 

The validation in the Custom Filter for ListView will not work.



Resolution



Provided and explanation to the user to use Report Definition instead of ListView which would resolve the problem. The following lines is the response from SME.

"We try to support as many of the UI features as we can for the custom filter section in List Views but we do not have support for all of them, one being client side validation.  Changing the architecture could break a critical piece of functionality to add this support and would be very risky, especially since we allow blank filter values when there isn't a custom filter section already.  We do have support for client side validation with Report Definitions (HFix-9982) and suggest that a Report Definition be used in this situation rather than a list view."
