Data model tab on Case type rule
When configuring the case type, I can choose what fields to display on the "Case information" section.
If I choose a single property without calculation, it appears on a case.
However I would like to display some fields that are on a page property (I created a data type). I can add the page as a field group on the data model tab of the case type rule, but cannot reference the fields on the page there. The data type page or properties do not show up on the "Case information" section. Also a declare index refering a field on the page, does not show, since, I think, calculated field are also not shown.
Am I misunderstanding the usage of data types on a case? Is it correct that calculated fields are not shown? How should I refer to properties on a page to show case wide?
Recently I started using similar feature from Pega Express where I have requriement to refer to Page property. I'm able to refer to page property without any issues. I believe this must also possible from Case Designer.
I ended up specializing pyCaseOverview, which is marked as an extension point.
This way I can add the properties I want on a custom section which is included on pyCaseOverview, replacing pyCaseInformation.
I my opinion this should be the correct way to handle this. Putting the custom section CaseInformation on a high level in the work class structure allows for other cases to make their own implementation.
