3297462 - On Save Rule Triggers Twice


In time off, when the employee requests a leave (absence) the onSave rule triggers twice in the same transaction.


Product version: SAP SuccessFactors HXM Core 2211

Component- Employee Central Time Off


Reproducing the Issue

  • Configure a rule that defaults an absence request workflow
  • set  the rule to trigger on save in employee time
  • set a rule trace
  • request an absence
  • check the rule trace
  • the rule triggers twice


Expected behavior


  • Rule with workflow will trigger at least twice because it need to save the value and then compute the workflow definition

  • Additionally for MDF workflows, the workflow rules set a field at an MDF object. If the first rule already set the field, the second rule will overwrite the value of the field, this is the expected behavior.
