OOTB Final activity lookuplist now requires authentication to run, which throws error when somebody attempts to do a look up using an unauthenticated requestor. This activity did not have 'requires authentication' checked until Pega 8.5.4
This becomes a problem for scenarios in SSO authentication, where a lookup could be required. Is this is a defect or done on purpose by Pega?
***Edited by Moderator Marije to add BUG Details***
The error is due to Changes are made in LookupList activity as requires authentication to run for security reasons.
This change has impact on SSO Users with model operator.
1.For User with SSO configuration to create operators using model operator,during first login operator is created & saved in database and there is a pulse mechanism to invalidate lookuplist cache
and in second login, operator is not recreated but retrieved from the database so the issue is not observed here.
2.There won't be any negative impact on functionally with latest change in LookupList activity (“Require authentication to run” checkbox is checked) as we're trying to clear cache even before authentication.
Since it does not cause any functional impact and in the logs its coming as Erro
BUG-640052 is fixed in latest patch release(8.5.4).
