2434105 - On Save Raise Messages do not Trigger on the Workflow Approval Page


Defined onSave Raise Messages are not triggered on Save (Approve) of a Workflow.

Reproducing the Issue

• Create an onSave Business Rule to trigger a Raise Message.
 • Assign Rule with Event Type "onSave" on a portlet, for example Job Information.
 • Make a change to a user's Job information to trigger a workflow.
 • On the Workflow Approval page the Raise Message is not triggered when pressing "Approve".


This is currently expected behaviour.


Based on MDF Business Rule logic, the onSave Raise Message Business Rule will trigger, when pressing "Save" on the assigned Portlet.
Therefore the raise message will trigger when the initiator makes a change on portlet. The workflow will then trigger after this raise message.
Once the Workflow is approved the raise message will not trigger again.
