So since I am using a shared category under the same access group that I am currently using and the category is not visible then this is a bug? See pzReportViewerUserActions. It only displays public categories, not shared categories
If you have created shared category for specific access group, the Owner type would be A. If you have created standard category for ALL, the Owner type would be S.
In Designer studio, while selecting a category to display the report in report browser, pzReportViewerUserActions section displays the categories.
The dropdown is sourced from D_pzCategoriesForOwnerType for which parameter Owner type is provided with default value of S. This is the reason you are not able to see the shared category in the drop down.
However, for the same access group, instead of designer studio , if you open report browser from case manager portal, you would be seeing the shared category.
Hope this answers why you are not seeing the shared category in designer studio.
Exactly. So I don't understand why Pega has done it this way. Why are they not allowing me to see shared caregories if I'm using the proper access group when editing a report definition? This means that I need to temporarily create a public category to edit my report definition and then when I'm done editing the report def remove the temporary public category?
