1 Introduction

In this document, we will explain how to solve the most common consistency errors that can occur when configuring navigation in Studio Pro.

An example of a consistency error is when you set a page that has a data view as a menu item.

2 Navigation Consistency Errors

The most common errors you can come across when configuring a navigation item are described in the table below:

The selected page {Name of the page} expects an object of type {type of object}, which is not available here. You have set a page that expects an object to be passed to it (a page with a data view and a Context data source) as a menu item. Pass an object to the page by changing the On click property of the menu item from Show a page to Create object. For more information, see section 2.1 Error Fix When the Selected Page Expects an Object
The selected {Name of the page} expects an object of type {type of object} and cannot be used as a home page. Change the page or use a microflow to provide the page with an object. You have set a page that expects an object to be passed to it (for example, a page with a data view) as a home page. But a home page has no object that is passed to it, because it is the starting point of a flow. You can use a microflow as the home page that will open the preferred page and pass a specific object to the home page. For more information, see section 2.2 Error Fix When the Selected Home Page Expects an Object

2.1 Error Fix When the Selected Page Expects an Object

When you set a page with a data view as a menu item, you get a consistency error, because the page expects an object to be passed to it.

For example, you have created a menu item called Program for a Responsive profile. This menu item opens the Program page. However, the Program page has a data view on it and expects a ProgramItem object to be passed to it, so that it can show the program details of a specific ProgramItem on the page. As a result, you get a consistency error, as no object is passed to this page from the navigation.

Scheme Showing the Menu Item Error

To fix the error, you can create an object and pass it to the page. Do the following:

  1. Open the navigation for the responsive profile.

  2. Open properties of the Program menu item, and do the following:

    a. Change the On click property from Show a page to Create object.

    b. Set ProgramItem as Entity (path).

    c. Set Program as On click page.

Now when a user clicks the menu item, a new ProgramItem object will be created and passed to the page.

2.2. Error Fix When the Selected Home Page Expects an Object

If you set a page that expects an object to be passed to it as a home page for a navigation profile, you will get a consistency error.

Let us study an example: you have added a data view that expects an object of type Customer to the home page of the responsive profile, and you get a consistency error.

Home Page Error

You can fix this error by creating a microflow that will that will create a new Customer object and pass it to the page. Do the following:

  1. Open the responsive navigation profile.

  2. In Default home page field click Select.

    Default Home Page Setting

  3. In the Select Navigation Target dialog window, click New, then select Create Microflow.

  4. Name the microflow ACT_Open_HomePage.

  5. Open the created microflow, add a Create Object activity to it

  6. For the Create Object activity, set Entity to Customer.

  7. Add Show Page activity to the microflow and do the following in the Show Page pop-up dialog:

    a. Set Object to pass to NewCustomer.

    b. Set Page to Home.

Now the new object of type Customer will be created and passed to the home page.
