Fixed problem in Helsinki Patch 4 Hot Fix 1

Problem Short description Description Steps to reproduce

Service Portal

PRB682246

Service Portal ignores multiple column variable layouts in catalog

Catalog uses containers to allow users to control the layout of the variables of their catalog items, letting them create variables that appear in multiple columns. Service Portal appears to ignore these containers, causing everything to display in a single column.

The fix for this PRB causes the two-column layout of containers to render first. Afterwards, the two-column layout of nested variable sets is rendered. Note that compared to the platform view of a catalog item, Service Portal does not render nested containers. Only variables and variable sets can be displayed inside a container.

  1. On a catalog item or record producer, add a container_start variable with layout = 2 columns, alternating sides.
  2. Add a few variables in order after the above container.
  3. Add a container end variable at the end.
  4. Open the catalog item or the record producer in the new Helsinki Service Portal.
You will notice that the fields appear in single column and not in 2 columns, as defined in the container.
