3078493 - CSF and main portlet Rule execution order


A rule is configured in Country/Region Specific data model (CSF) to set field A's value to X, meanwhile another rule is used in main portlet to set field A's value to Y. After rules execute successfully, A's value is set to Y.

What is the rule execution order?


SuccessFactors Employee Central

Reproducing the Issue

  1. login instance
  2. go to Employee Profile
  3. insert a new record in Job Information portlet to trigger onSave rules
  4. after record saved successfully, A's value is updated following the rule configured in main portlet


 In EC portlets, the CSF rules run first, and then main portlet rules run.


System works as expected as the main portlet rule runs later than CSF rules.
