E-PIA: PT 8.56 Form factor Dropdown Not Enabled After Clicking Trace 'Set Trace Flags'

(Doc ID 2316507.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 19, 2017

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.56 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Using PT 8.56.XX, the Form factor drop down does not show-up as an option after clicking the 'Set Trace Flags' Link on the homepage preventing testing to be performed in various Form Factors as was the case in previous Tools versions.  PeopleTools provides a built-in option for testing your fluid components and pages by form factor through the 'Set Trace Flags' link. 

It should be noted that although using the PeopleTools form factor trace option is helpful in testing, it is not a replacement for browser emulation, third party emulation or simulation, or testing on actual devices (smartphones, tablets, laptops, desktops, and so on). It is provided as a tool to give you quick feedback and testing capabilities while developing fluid pages.


STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:


1. Enable the 'Set Trace Flags' link by enabling the Show Trace Link at Signon Web Profile property on the Debugging tab.

2. Click 'Set Trace Flags' link on PIA homepage
