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.

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 you need your 'on every save' workflow rules not triggering on object creations, you may contact your implementation manager to help with such request or approach directly the SAP Cloud Service Center.
