Take rules are used to validate the leave requests.

  • Take rules trigger during Employee Time imports as well.


  • When creating a leave through the old v12 UI, the take rules are triggered when changing time type, start date or end date. Custom fields will not trigger the rule.
  • For the new Fiori UI, rules are triggered on change of any field in the time off request leave screen.
