Steps to replicate are as follows:

1. Navigate to PeopleTools > Portal > Activity Guide > Manage Templates. Create an Activity Guide:  SCC_TM_FLUID

2. Under Template Properties step as shown in attachment, When clicked on 'Advanced Options' Tab, it shows 'Field Name'.

3. If a Field name is specified, and type is set as 'Runtime', it will ask for the parameter when Activity guide instance is created.

4. Its user responsibility to ensure parameters has been passed to these fields to build correct URL.

Note: Typically, applications pass the context key fields via AG url as follows that will work for both creating a new instance if not present or fetch the existing instance if already present in the system.



 5. If URL missing these parameters values, the above error will generate.

6. For creating new Activity Guide instances, reach out to application team. They will guide with navigation page from where you can create activity guide template dynamically using parameters entered on page. Parameters mentioned under Advanced Options Tab are must to execute Activity Guide and create the User AG instance.
