Hello Sravan,

Please share the below details:

1. PRPC version
2. Configuration details if possible with screenshots

which will help us in better understanding the use case and providing a right approach.

Response to MounikaThatikonda

we are using Pega 7.1.8 version. Child cases are already created, we are showing the child cases in a repeat grid. 

Please note that parent and child cases are already created. We are currently displaying all the child cases in a repeating grid for the parent. On the repeat grid, we have added an onclick event, which is to "Open the assignment" and passed pzInsKey as a parameter. So now when user clicks on the case, it is currently opening in a new tab, we want that case to be opened in the same tab and close the parent case. Kindly let me know if you still need any other details.

Thanks,
Sravan

Hello Sravan,

Child case is nothing but creating a new work item, You are telling that parent case work item is already opened and in that I want to open a new work item. I think it is not possible but you will get the data of the child case in the parent case once it is created.

Thank you.
