Array Type Config Attributes Appear Duplicated in the Dynamic Data Drop-down List For Doc Engine

(Doc ID 2291580.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 21, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle BigMachines CPQ Cloud Service - Version 2014 R1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

  1. Open a document in Doc Engine and search for a Config Attribute in the Dynamic Data drop-down list. The config attribute will appear twice in the drop-down list.
  2. Add both occurrences of the Config Attribute to the Document and view Page Source.
  3. The first occurrence will have an incorrect XPATH: ("./@arraySet1/@display_value").
  4. The second occurrence will have the correct XPATH: ("./config/_config_attr_info/attribute[@var_name='arraySet1']/@display_value").

When an Array Type Configurable attribute is associated with an Array Set, it is duplicated in Doc Engine > Dynamic Data drop-down list.

When adding both of the duplicate entries to the document and checking the page XSL code, the first entry in the list does not have the correct XPATH, hence the output returns blank value. The second entry out of the duplicates is showing the correct XPATH and is displayed correctly in the document output.
