I have a REST service, from which I'm referring to a data page (via the service activity). The Data Page is a editable thread level one, with NO 'Reload per interaction'/'Limit data page to single page' option selected & also, the data page is not parameterized as well.
I'm also printing the requestor & thread name in the response to confirm which requestor & thread the request is being processed on.
Also, in the service package, I have kept the max no. of active & idle requestors as 3 & idle time to 10 seconds.
When I run the service manually from my pega login, the thread level Data Page is loaded only the 1st time & is not refreshed for successive service executions (confirmed, since the same data from the 1st load is shown in response for next runs as well).
But, when I trigger the service from SOAP UI, the Data Page is refreshed every time (different/new data is returned in response every time). The requestor & thread is the same for all runs (printed & confirmed in response).
Is there any difference in how Pega treats a user requestor & a service requestor? Is the STANDARD thread of a service requestor reinitialized each time while the requestor is reused? What is the explaination/reason for this difference in behavior?
