We have some summary views included in Chart controls in our application and they are no longer working post upgrade.They are not rendering the chart on the UI.
There is no choice for selecting summary view in the control options.
The data sources in 7.1.8 for rendering chart control are
1. Data Page
2. Clipboard Page
3. Report Definition

The *new* auto-generated Chart control (pxChart) does not support the use of summary views in Pega 7. In Pega 7, we are moving away from the use of older reporting rule types, such as list and summary views and encouraging that report definitions be used instead.
There is a non-auto-generated Chart control that can be used to include a Summary View in a section rule. Just choose the cell you want to put it in, open the property panel, choose Change > Other, and then enter "Chart". (Note: You'll need to use IE to configure the control parameters.) You will also have to specifically configure the Summary View rule to display a chart when used.
Even then, looking at some of the release notes for past Pega 7 updates, I would predict you may see issues with how it renders at runtime.
I'm not sure if we provide any specific upgrade path for this scenario. If we do, I haven't been able to find any documentation on it.
My recommendation would be, depending on the volume, re-implement your summary views as report definitions and use the new auto-generated chart control *or* if you don't want to completely redo your reporting, look into giving the clipboard pages generated by your existing summary views unique names and reference them using the auto-generated chart control's "Clipboard Page" option.
I would lean toward the first option as the combination of report definitions and the auto-generated chart control will provide you the best upgrade path moving forward with future Pega 7 updates.
Unfortunately, I don't know the answer to your question. But I can certainly try to find out for you. In order to help me do that better, could you please re-post it as it's own discussion?
I think it's unique enough to warrant its own thread and doing so will help make it more visible to other community members looking to help out with unanswered questions (especially since this thread is already marked as answered).
