Reproducing the Issue

  • Proxy as the user assigned to complete New hire data review step
  • Complete the New hire data review step for external candidate.
  • The task is still not completed and in the Onboarding dashboard it still shows as pending. 


  • There is a business rule configured that restarts the onboarding process and due to this the task was not set to completed. 


  • Check if there is any business rule maintained in Manage business configuration or Process object (Configure object Definition -> Object definition -> Process). 
  • Disable these rules or modify the If conditions so that the external candidates are skipped, and the onboarding is restarted only when the If conditions are met.
