3168866 - Lead Workflow Rule Does Not Work

However, workflow rule is not triggered when the field is changed.


SAP Cloud for Customer

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Administrator Workcenter, Workflow Rules view.
  2. Select Workflow Rule 123 and click to Edit.
  3. On conditions page, field Owner (Formatted Name) is being used.

Now, go to Lead ABC (ABC refers to the Lead ID):

  1. Change the Owner field, present on header.
  2. Go to the Workflow changes tab and see that the rule was not triggered.

Going back to Workflow Rules view, at Administrator WC, checking the rule log, you'll see that the rule was not triggered, indeed.


Option Owner (Formatted Name) is mapped to Created By field, not Owner field.


If you want to use the field Owner as a condition, please use option Owner ID as condition.
