Where can I find examples of property reference syntax in correspondence rules?

Let me first give my standard disclaimer of having checked the 7.1.7 PRPC help and PDN first...

I am sending an email from my application, and currently it is just boilerplate text that I have typed in. I would like to include references to property values on the current case, and see this in the help:


Required. Enter a text string or a property reference.

Message Click the appropriate radio button to create your message with the Rich Text Editor or a Correspondence template.

Now I have been trying to find the syntax for putting in a property reference in either the subject or the message field, but am not finding anything. Can someone point me to the proper syntax for this?

Hi Jim,

Try going to app explorer on PegaSample as shown in the following snapshot, and navigate to a correspondence rule.  Here's one that includes property references.  I got to this one from the ootb administrative login.  After getting to the correspondence rule, you should try clicking "actions - > get help" and within the help screen that comes up, click the "corr" tab help text for more info.  /Eric

hi Jim,

To find PegaSample, which is a work class full of lots of working flows that are useful for learning, assuming you are running Pega 7  :

1) Log in as / install

2) Grab left edge of window with mouse and slide it left and right a bit until you see a cube icon labeled with the word "App" in the left margin.  Click it.

3) You'll see the app explorer on left-pane with PegaSample as the root class shown at the top.
