Reproducing the Issue

You will experience this issue if you have used the LeanLead.Create in the PDI code while running a MDRO from UI(depends on case to case) or via intergration.


This issue happens if LeanLead Business Object is modified within the Lead BeforeSave event in scripting.

Since both Business Objects have the same persistency, any modification of the LeanLead Business Object triggers the BeforeSave of Business Object Lead, thereby resulting in an infinite loop/error.


It is recommended to shift all logic dependent on LeanLead to the Lead Business Object, as this would ensure the consistency of the solution as well as prevent the infinite loop/error/time lag in the future.
