3000873 - Behaviour of Onsave rule for "Status" field on Job requisition details page and Candidate workbench


You have configured an Onsave rule on job req to update one of the job req fields. 

Context of the rule is to have a field in the job req page updated when job req "Status" is updated.  

If you update the Status field from the Job requisition details page and save it , the rule works fine.  But if you update the Status from Candidate workbench rule will not trigger.

Reproducing the Issue

Make sure to configure a Business rule where a field in Job req page must be updated upon updating the Status field.

Go to recruiting >> Job requisitions >> Open a Job req.

Update the job req status to say : “Interview” from the job req tab you can see that rule is getting triggered but if you update from Candidate Workbench Status field the rule will not trigger.


Job Requisition page and Candidate work bench are different pages.

Hence the Business rule will not work on Candidate workbench.


This is a system limitation or a known behaviour for now, since these are entirely different pages with a different code base.
