2535297 - On Every Save Workflow Rule Triggered on Object Creation


You created a workflow rule for a object with timing 'on every save' that is getting triggered when you just create it.


SAP Cloud for Customer

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login in the system.
  2. Create an object (i. e. an Opportunity) that has a workflow rule defined to trigger on every save of it.

You notice that the workflow rule was triggered when you just created the object.


When an object is created in the system, a 'save' action is triggered. We can understand 'on create only' workflow timing as 'on first save only'.


This is the system standard behavior. If the feature/functionality is required urgently, please refer to KBA 3475641 - Functionality Currently not Available.
