When there is one UI policy that is meant to hide a container with its variables and a second UI policy that if it sees the value of a certain variable within the container it will show a different variable in that container, it breaks by showing the container and some of the variables inside even though the container is supposed to be hidden.

Steps to Reproduce


  1. Create the following items:

    • Catalog Item Test Variable Issue
    • The following five variables:
      • outside - Single line text that is outside the container
      • start_container - Container Start
      • show_details - Yes/No variable with Include None
      • add_details - Single line text
      • End Container
    • Two Catalog UI Policies (with both "Reverse if false" and "On load" set to true)
      • Hide Container - When "outside" is not empty, show the container and relevant variables
      • Show Additional Details - When "show_details" is Yes, show the "add_details" variable (visible = true) and make this mandatory
    • Four Catalog UI Policy Actions tied to the two previously created Catalog UI Policies:
      • start_container - visible: True, others: leave alone
      • show_details - mandatory: True, others: leave alone
      • add_details - all: leave alone
      • add_details - mandatory: true, visible: true
  2. Go to the Test Variable Issue Catalog Item and click the Try it button.

    Note that on the ordering page, the start_container and show_details variables appear on this form.
