OnSave rule is not triggered when clicking "Send to Next Step" in a Job Requisition

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create an OnSave rule in Recruiting Management.
  2. Create a new Job Requisition and ensure the "View Form by Section" is enabled
  3. Use the button "Send to Next Step" to save the Job Requisition
  4. The OnSave rule will not trigger


  • OnSave rules will not execute if "View Form by Section" is selected and "Send to Next Step" is used to save the requisition.

  • The rule will trigger if users choose "View Full Form" and "Send to Next Step" button:

  • The rule will also trigger if users use the manual save disk icon (located at the top of the Job Requisition):

This is a current limitation of the product. An enhancement request has already been raised for a usage behavior change on the OnSave Rules to support View Form by Section. Although timings may change, the enhancement is targetted to be implemented in B1905.
