@hasMessages causes OperationFail error


After upgrading from Pega 7.1.6 to Pega 7.1.7 the @hasMessages function does not work as expected. Error is generated when using the function.


@OperationFail() || @hasMessages(Param.WorkObjectPageName) null


1. Use @hasMessages in an activity. 2. Call this activity from the post action of the flow action to observe the issue.


The issue occurs when you remove pyWorkPage in post processing activity of flow action.


The issue is resolved in Pega 7.1.8.

Hi Rasaiya,

I dont think there is any HFIX for this . Please plan for an update to latest ML release to enjoy the advanced features of PEGA.

You can see the details in the release note here :

search the internal database, does not look there is any hotfix for this. Try not to remove pyWorkPage, that should avoid such error. Or update to 7.1.8 (or the latest) if possible.

Hi Rasaiya,

Pega is trying to be consistent with industry standard by releasing maintenance releases periodically (similar to IBM fixpacks), for the good of our customers. A hotfix is only going to be approved with substantial business justification (e.g., blocking major use cases in production). Each maintenance release has gone through full cycle of qa/testing/system testing whereas ad-hoc hotfixes have not. Hope this clarifies.

what is working in previous version should work in the new version also ,otherwise no one would prefer to use the software

Agreed. Normally backward compatibility issues (if proven) will be approved. You can create a service request to start the process or if the impact is so small you can simply try the local solution.
