Incorrect configuration in Object Definition of Payment Information.


Pending Data Check
If a workflow is associated to the Payment Information Object Definition, this checks if the Pending Data flag in the same Object Definition is set to “Yes” or “No”. If the flag is set to “Yes”, the check is considered successful.

Implementation Handbook Note

  • Change “Pending Data” for Payment Information object to “Yes” if you want the changes to take place only when the workflow is approved.
  • Change "Pending Data" for Payment Information object to “No” if you are not using Workflow Approvals.



NOTE: At present, Dynamic Roles are not supported for MDF objects. It’s mentioned in the MDF handbook in “Adding Workflows” section. Configure the workflow approver(s) accordingly.
