E-CI: After Adding a Custom Subpage containing a Multiple Level Scroll to a Component's Drop Zone (DZ), the New Custom Properties Are not Created Properly in the CI Definition (Doc ID 3026085.1)

Last updated on MAY 31, 2024

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.60 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Developers created a custom subpage containing multiple level scrolls, and added it to a component page's Drop Zone (DZ).
After doing so, the DZ functionality worked fine online in PIA, but when a custom CI was created from the component, the DZ properties in the CI definition were not created properly.
For example, a Level 2 collection property appeared at Level 0 (L0) with a blank name, and as a scalar instead of a collection.
Also, the L2 collection sub-properties appeared with names, but they also appeared as L0 scalars, not at the correct level as sub-properties of the L2 collection.


Replication Steps:

1. Create the custom objects (record(s), fields, subpage, etc.) such that the subpage contains multiple level scrolls.

2. Log into PIA, and navigate to PeopleTools > Portal > Configure Drop Zones.

3. Open the component being used.

4. Add the custom subpage to the component's page in the planned Drop Zone, and save.

5. Log into Application Designer, and create a custom CI from the component above.

6. Observe some of the following:

  a) Custom Level 2 collection sub-properties appear as Level 0 properties,.
  b) A collection property, which should appear as a cube, appears as a scalar (simple L0 property), and has a blank name.


Sample Environment:

PeopleTools 8.60.11
HCM 9.20
